|Matthew 13:24-28 |
24 The Parable of the Good Seed and the Tares of the Field
Another parable he put forth to them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven is compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field.
25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way.
26 And when the blade had sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then the tares appeared also.
27 So the servants of the householder came and said to him, 'Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? From where then have these tares come?'
28 He said to them, 'An enemy has done this.' And the servants asked him, 'Then do you want us to go and gather them up?'
