 12041204 Matt. xiii. 24.And he set forth to them another parable, and said, The kingdom of heaven is  like a man who sowed good seed in his field; 12051205 Matt. xiii. 25.but when men slept, his enemy came  and sowed tares among the wheat, and went away. 12061206 Matt. xiii. 26.And when the blade sprang up  and brought forth fruit, there were noticed the tares also. 12071207 Matt. xiii. 27.And the servants of the master of the house came, and said unto him, Our lord, didst thou not sow good 70 [Arabic, p. 66] seed in thy field? whence are there tares in it? 12081208 Matt. xiii. 28.He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. His servants said unto him, Wilt thou that we go  and separate it? 12091209 Matt. xiii. 29.He said unto them, Perhaps,12101210 See above, § 4, 24, note. when ye separate the tares, ye would  root up with them wheat also. 12111211 Matt. xiii. 30.Leave them to grow both together until the harvest: and in the time of the harvest I will say unto the reapers, Separate the tares first, and bind them in bundles to be burned with fire; and gather the wheat into my barns.
[8, 9] 12121212 Matt. xiii. 31a.And he set forth to them another parable, and said, 12131213 Luke xiii. 18b.To what is the kingdom of  God like? and to what shall I liken it? and in what parable shall I set it forth? 12141214 Mark iv. 30b; Luke xiii. 19a.It  is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and planted in his field: 12151215 Matt. xiii. 31c; Mark iv. 31b.and of the number of the things that are sown in the earth it is smaller than all of the things  which are sown, which are upon the earth; 12161216 Matt. xiii. 32b; Mark iv. 32b.but when it is grown, it is greater than all the herbs, and produceth large branches, so that the birds of heaven make their nests in its branches.
[13, 14] 12171217 Mark iv. 33; or rather Matt. xiii. 33a.And he set forth to them another parable: 12181218 Luke xiii. 20b.To what shall I liken the kingdom of  God? 12191219 Matt. xiii. 33b.It is like the leaven which a woman took, and kneaded into three measures of flour, until the whole of it was leavened.
 12201220 Matt. xiii. 34a; Mark iv. 33b.And Jesus spake all that to the multitudes by way of parables, according as they  were able to hear. 12211221 Matt. xiii. 34b; Matt. xiii. 35.And without parables spake he not unto them; that the saying of the Lord through the prophet might be fulfilled:
I will open my mouth in parables;
And I will utter secrets which were before the foundations12221222 The word (if not a corruption of that used in the Brit. Mus. text of Ibn-at-Tayyib’s Commentary, and in § 43, 46 where, however, according to Ciasca’s foot-note, it was not the word first written by the scribe) is Syriac. Perhaps it means the ends of the earth (see P. Smith, Thes. Syr.). Still a third word is used in § 47, 42. of the world.
 12241224 Matt. xiii. 36.Then Jesus left12251225 cf. § 11, 32, note. the multitudes, and came to the house. And his disciples came unto him, and said unto him, Explain unto us that parable about the tares  [Arabic, p. 67] and the field. 12261226 Matt. xiii. 37.He answered and said unto them, He that sowed good seed is  the Son of man; 12271227 Matt. xiii. 38.and the field is the world; and the good seed are the children of the  kingdom; 12281228 Matt. xiii. 39.and the tares are the children of the evil one; and the enemy that sowed them12291229 Singular. is Satan; and the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.  12301230 Matt. xiii. 40.And as the tares are separated and burned in the fire, so shall it be in the end of  this world. 12311231 Matt. xiii. 41.The Son of man shall send his angels, and separate from his kingdom  all things that injure, 12321232 Matt. xiii. 42.and all the doers of iniquity, and they shall cast them into the  furnace of fire: and there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 12331233 Matt. xiii. 43.Then the righteous shall shine as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Whosoever hath ears that hear, let him hear.
 12341234 Matt. xiii. 44.And again the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hid in a field: that which a man found and hid; and, for his pleasure in it, went and sold all that he had, and bought that field.
 12351235 Matt. xiii. 45.And again the kingdom of heaven is like a man that is a merchant seeking excellent  pearls; 12361236 Matt. xiii. 46.and when he found one pearl of great price, he went and sold everything that he had, and bought it.
 12371237 Matt. xiii. 47.And again the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was cast12381238 cf. note to § 10, 8. into the sea, and  gathered of every kind: 12391239 Matt. xiii. 48.and when it was filled, they drew it up on to the shore of the sea, and sat down to select; and the good of them they threw into the vessels,  and the bad they threw outside. 12401240 Matt. xiii. 49.Thus shall it be in the end of the world: the angels  shall go forth, 12411241 Matt. xiii. 50.and separate the wicked from among the good, and shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
 12421242 Matt. xiii. 51.Jesus said unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They said unto  [Arabic, p. 68] him, Yea, our Lord. 12431243 Matt. xiii. 52.He said unto them, Therefore every scribe that becometh a disciple of the kingdom of heaven is like a man that is a householder, who bringeth out of his treasures the new and the old.
[36, 37] 12441244 Matt. xiii. 53.And when Jesus had finished all these parables, he removed thence, and came to his city; 12451245 Matt. xiii. 54.and he taught them in their synagogues, so that they were perplexed.  12461246 Mark vi. 2.And when the sabbath came, Jesus began to teach in the synagogue; and many of  those that heard marvelled, and said, Whence came these things to this man? And many envied him and gave no heed to him, but said, What is this wisdom that is 71given to this man, that there should happen at his hands such as these mighty works?12471247 Lit. powers.  12481248 Matt. xiii. 55.Is not this a carpenter, son of a carpenter? and is not his mother called Mary? and  his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? 12491249 Matt. xiii. 56.And his sisters, all of them,  lo, are they not all with us? 12501250 Matt. xiii. 57.Whence hath this man all these things? And they were in doubt concerning him. 12511251 Luke iv. 23.And Jesus knew their opinion, and said unto them, Will ye haply12521252 cf. above, § 4, 24, note. say unto me this proverb, Physician, heal first thyself: and all that  we have heard that thou didst in Capernaum, do here also in thine own city? 12531253 Luke iv. 24.And he said, Verily I say unto you, A prophet is not received in his own city, nor among  his brethren: 12541254 Mark vi. 4b.for a prophet is not despised, save in his own city, and among his own  kin, and in his own house. 12551255 Luke iv. 25.Verily I say unto you, In the days of Elijah the prophet, there were many widows among the children of Israel, when the heaven held back  three years and six months, 12561256 Luke iv. 26.and there was a great famine in all the land; and Elijah [Arabic, p. 69] was not sent to one of them, save to Zarephath of Sidon, to a woman that was  a widow. 12571257 Luke iv. 27.And many lepers were among the children of Israel in the days of Elisha the prophet; but not one of them was cleansed, save Naaman the Nabathæan.12581258 Of the Syriac versions Cur. and Sin. are wanting. Pesh. has Aramæan.  12591259 Mark vi. 5.And he was not able to do there many mighty works,12601260 Lit. powers. because of their unbelief;  except that he laid his hand upon a few of the sick, and healed them. 12611261 Mark vi. 6a.And he marvelled  at their lack of faith. 12621262 Luke iv. 28.And when those who were in the synagogue heard,  they were all filled with wrath; and they rose up, 12631263 Luke iv. 29.and brought him forth outside the city, and brought him to the brow of the hill upon which their city was built, that  they might cast him from its summit: 12641264 Luke iv. 30.but he passed through among them and went away.
