1 Christ reproveth the Pharisees' blindness concerning the breach of the sabbath: 9 he healeth the withered hand, etc.

T that time a Jesus went on the sabbath-day through the corn: and his disciples were an hungered, and began to pluck b the ears of corn, and to eat.

2 But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him, Behold, thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do c upon the sabbath-day.

3 But he said unto them, Have ye not read what David did d when he was an hungered, and they that were with him;

4 How he entered into the house of God, and did eat the show-bread, e which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only f for the priests? 5 Or have ye not read in the law.

how that on the sabbath-days the priests in the temple h profane the Sabbath, and are blameless?

14 Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him.

10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?

11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you tod know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

12 For e whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away, even that he hath.

13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, f which saith, Byg hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: 15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull h of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. 16 But i blessed are your eyes, for they see and your ears, for they hear.

17 For verily I say unto you, That k many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.

19 When any one heareth the word m of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked n one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.


20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy o receiveth it;

21 Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended. p

seed, leaven, etc. 36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

n Da. 12.3. 33 Another parable spake he 1Co.15.49. unto them; The kingdom of heaven o Pr.2.4,5. is like unto leaven, which a woman p Phi.3.7,8. took, and hid in three 1 measures q Is.55.1. of meal, till the whole was leaven-i ed.

31 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; a and without a parable spake he not unto them: 35 That it might be fulfilled which u ver.42. was spoken by the prophet, b say-v Pr.10.21. ing, I will open my mouth in para- 15.7. bles; I will utter things which have ་ 18.4. been kept c secret from the foun-w Ca.7.13. dation of the world.

37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;

38 The field is the world; d the good seed are the children of the kingdom; e but the tares are the children of the wicked fone;

39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; g and the reapers are the angels. h

40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. 41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all 2 things that offend, and them which do iniquity;

42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there m shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

43 Then shall the righteous shine n forth as the sun in the kingdom

of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure o hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth p all that he hath, and buyeth q that field. 45 T Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchantman, seeking goodly pearls:

46 Who, when he had found one r pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it. 47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered s of every kind:

48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.

49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and t sever the wicked from among the just,

50 And u shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

51 Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.
