Matthew 13 (WEBP)

[1] On that day Jesus went out of the house and sat by the seaside.
[2] Great multitudes gathered to him, so that he entered into a boat and sat; and all the multitude stood on the beach.
[3] He spoke to them many things in parables, saying, “Behold, a farmer went out to sow.
[4] As he sowed, some seeds fell by the roadside, and the birds came and devoured them.
[5] Others fell on rocky ground, where they didn’t have much soil, and immediately they sprang up, because they had no depth of earth.
[6] When the sun had risen, they were scorched. Because they had no root, they withered away.
[7] Others fell among thorns. The thorns grew up and choked them.
[8] Others fell on good soil and yielded fruit: some one hundred times as much, some sixty, and some thirty.
[9] He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”
[10] The disciples came, and said to him, “Why do you speak to them in parables?”
[11] He answered them, “To you it is given to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, but it is not given to them.
[12] For whoever has, to him will be given, and he will have abundance; but whoever doesn’t have, from him will be taken away even that which he has.
[13] Therefore I speak to them in parables, because seeing they don’t see, and hearing, they don’t hear, neither do they understand.
[14] In them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says, ‘By hearing you will hear, and will in no way understand; Seeing you will see, and will in no way perceive;
[15] for this people’s heart has grown callous, their ears are dull of hearing, and they have closed their eyes; or else perhaps they might perceive with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their heart, and would turn again, and I would heal them.’
[16] “But blessed are your eyes, for they see; and your ears, for they hear.
[17] For most certainly I tell you that many prophets and righteous men desired to see the things which you see, and didn’t see them; and to hear the things which you hear, and didn’t hear them.
[18] “Hear, then, the parable of the farmer.
[19] When anyone hears the word of the Kingdom and doesn’t understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away that which has been sown in his heart. This is what was sown by the roadside.
[20] What was sown on the rocky places, this is he who hears the word and immediately with joy receives it;
[21] yet he has no root in himself, but endures for a while. When oppression or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he stumbles.
[22] What was sown among the thorns, this is he who hears the word, but the cares of this age and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful.
[23] What was sown on the good ground, this is he who hears the word and understands it, who most certainly bears fruit and produces, some one hundred times as much, some sixty, and some thirty.”
[24] He set another parable before them, saying, “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field,
[25] but while people slept, his enemy came and sowed darnel weeds° also among the wheat, and went away.
[26] But when the blade sprang up and produced grain, then the darnel weeds appeared also.
[27] The servants of the householder came and said to him, ‘Sir, didn’t you sow good seed in your field? Where did these darnel weeds come from?’
[28] “He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ “The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and gather them up?’
[29] “But he said, ‘No, lest perhaps while you gather up the darnel weeds, you root up the wheat with them.
[30] Let both grow together until the harvest, and in the harvest time I will tell the reapers, “First, gather up the darnel weeds, and bind them in bundles to burn them; but gather the wheat into my barn.” ’ ”
[31] He set another parable before them, saying, “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a grain of mustard seed which a man took, and sowed in his field,
[32] which indeed is smaller than all seeds. But when it is grown, it is greater than the herbs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in its branches.”
[33] He spoke another parable to them. “The Kingdom of Heaven is like yeast which a woman took and hid in three measures° of meal, until it was all leavened.”
[34] Jesus spoke all these things in parables to the multitudes; and without a parable, he didn’t speak to them,
[35] that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through the prophet, saying, “I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things hidden from the foundation of the world.”
[36] Then Jesus sent the multitudes away, and went into the house. His disciples came to him, saying, “Explain to us the parable of the darnel weeds of the field.”
[37] He answered them, “He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man,
[38] the field is the world, the good seeds are the children of the Kingdom, and the darnel weeds are the children of the evil one.
[39] The enemy who sowed them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are angels.
[40] As therefore the darnel weeds are gathered up and burned with fire; so will it be at the end of this age.
[41] The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will gather out of his Kingdom all things that cause stumbling and those who do iniquity,
[42] and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
[43] Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear.
[44] “Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like treasure hidden in the field, which a man found and hid. In his joy, he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.
[45] “Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a man who is a merchant seeking fine pearls,
[46] who having found one pearl of great price, he went and sold all that he had and bought it.
[47] “Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a dragnet that was cast into the sea and gathered some fish of every kind,
[48] which, when it was filled, fishermen drew up on the beach. They sat down and gathered the good into containers, but the bad they threw away.
[49] So it will be in the end of the world.§ The angels will come and separate the wicked from among the righteous,
[50] and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
[51] Jesus said to them, “Have you understood all these things?” They answered him, “Yes, Lord.”
[52] He said to them, “Therefore every scribe who has been made a disciple in the Kingdom of Heaven is like a man who is a householder, who brings out of his treasure new and old things.”
[53] When Jesus had finished these parables, he departed from there.
[54] Coming into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished and said, “Where did this man get this wisdom and these mighty works?
[55] Isn’t this the carpenter’s son? Isn’t his mother called Mary, and his brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas?§
[56] Aren’t all of his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all of these things?”
[57] They were offended by him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor, except in his own country and in his own house.”
[58] He didn’t do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

Matthew 13 (KJVS)

[1] G1161 The same G1722 G1565 day G2250 went G1831 (Aor2ActPtc) Jesus G2424 out of G575 the house G3614, and sat G2521 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) by G3844 the sea side G2281.
[2] And G2532 great G4183 multitudes G3793 were gathered together G4863 (AorPasInd) unto G4314 him G846, so that G5620 he G846 went G1684 (Aor2ActPtc) into G1519 a ship G4143, and sat G2521 (PresMidPasDepInf); and G2532 the whole G3956 multitude G3793 stood G2476 (PlupfActInd) on G1909 the shore G123.
[3] And G2532 he spake G2980 (AorActInd) many things G4183 unto them G846 in G1722 parables G3850, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Behold G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), a sower G4687 (PresActPtc) went forth G1831 (Aor2ActInd) to sow G4687 (PresActInf);
[4] And G2532 when G1722 he G846 sowed G4687 (PresActInf), some G3739 G3303 [seeds] fell G4098 (Aor2ActInd) by G3844 the way side G3598, and G2532 the fowls G4071 came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) and G2532 devoured G2719 them G846 up G2719 (Aor2ActInd):
[5] Some G1161 G243 fell G4098 (Aor2ActInd) upon G1909 stony places G4075, where G3699 they had G2192 (ImpfActInd) not G3756 much G4183 earth G1093: and G2532 forthwith G2112 they sprung up G1816 (AorActInd), because G1223 they had G2192 (PresActInf) no G3361 deepness G899 of earth G1093:
[6] And G1161 when the sun G2246 was up G393 (AorActPtc), they were scorched G2739 (AorPasInd); and G2532 because G1223 they had G2192 (PresActInf) no G3361 root G4491, they withered away G3583 (AorPasInd).
[7] And G1161 some G243 fell G4098 (Aor2ActInd) among G1909 thorns G173; and G2532 the thorns G173 sprung up G305 (Aor2ActInd), and G2532 choked G638 (AorActInd) them G846:
[8] But G1161 other G243 fell G4098 (Aor2ActInd) into G1909 good G2570 ground G1093, and G2532 brought forth G1325 (ImpfActInd) fruit G2590, some G3739 G3303 an hundredfold G1540, G1161 some G3739 sixtyfold G1835, G1161 some G3739 thirtyfold G5144.
[9] Who G3588 hath G2192 (PresActPtc) ears G3775 to hear G191 (PresActInf), let him hear G191 (PresActImpr).
[10] And G2532 the disciples G3101 came G4334 (Aor2ActPtc), and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Why G1302 speakest thou G2980 (PresActInd) unto them G846 in G1722 parables G3850?
[11] He answered G611 (AorPasDepPtc) and G1161 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto them G846, Because G3754 it is given G1325 (PerfPasInd) unto you G5213 to know G1097 (Aor2ActInf) the mysteries G3466 of the kingdom G932 of heaven G3772, but G1161 to them G1565 it is G1325 not G3756 given G1325 (PerfPasInd).
[12] For G1063 whosoever G3748 hath G2192 (PresActInd), to him G846 shall be given G1325 (FutPasInd), and G2532 he shall have more abundance G4052 (FutPasInd): but G1161 whosoever G3748 hath G2192 (PresActInd) not G3756, from G575 him G846 shall be taken away G142 (FutPasInd) even G2532 that G3739 he hath G2192 (PresActInd).
[13] Therefore G1223 G5124 speak I G2980 (PresActInd) to them G846 in G1722 parables G3850: because G3754 they seeing G991 (PresActPtc) see G991 (PresActInd) not G3756; and G2532 hearing G191 (PresActPtc) they hear G191 (PresActInd) not G3756, neither G3761 do they understand G4920 (PresActInd).
[14] And G2532 in G1909 them G846 is fulfilled G378 (PresPasInd) the prophecy G4394 of Esaias G2268, which G3588 saith G3004 (PresActPtc), By hearing G189 ye shall hear G191 (FutActInd), and G2532 shall G4920 not G3364 understand G4920 (Aor2Subj); and G2532 seeing G991 (PresActPtc) ye shall see G991 (FutActInd), and G2532 shall G1492 not G3364 perceive G1492 (Aor2ActSubj):
[15] For G1063 this G5127 people’s G2992 heart G2588 is waxed gross G3975 (AorPasInd), and G2532 [their] ears G3775 are dull G917 of hearing G191 (AorActInd), and G2532 their G846 eyes G3788 they have closed G2576 (AorActInd); lest at any time G3379 they should see G1492 (Aor2ActSubj) with [their] eyes G3788, and G2532 hear G191 (AorActSubj) with [their] ears G3775, and G2532 should understand G4920 (Aor2ActSubj) with [their] heart G2588, and G2532 should be converted G1994 (AorActSubj), and G2532 I should heal G2390 (AorMidDepSubj) them G846.
[16] But G1161 blessed G3107 [are] your G5216 eyes G3788, for G3754 they see G991 (PresActInd): and G2532 your G5216 ears G3775, for G3754 they hear G191 (PresActInd).
[17] For G1063 verily G281 I say G3004 (PresActInd) unto you G5213, That G3754 many G4183 prophets G4396 and G2532 righteous G1342 [men] have desired G1937 (AorActInd) to see G1492 (Aor2ActInf) [those things] which G3739 ye see G991 (PresActInd), and G2532 have G1492 not G3756 seen G1492 (Aor2ActInd) [them]; and G2532 to hear G191 (AorActInf) [those things] which G3739 ye hear G191 (PresActInd), and G2532 have G191 not G3756 heard G191 (AorActInd) [them].
[18] Hear G191 (AorActImpr) ye G5210 therefore G3767 the parable G3850 of the sower G4687 (PresActPtc).
[19] When any G3956 one heareth G191 (PresActPtc) the word G3056 of the kingdom G932, and G2532 understandeth G4920 (PresActPtc) [it] not G3361, then cometh G2064 (PresMidPasDepInd) the wicked G4190 [one], and G2532 catcheth away G726 (PresActInd) that which G3588 was sown G4687 (PerfPasPtc) in G1722 his G846 heart G2588. This G3778 is G2076 (PresInd) he which received seed G4687 (Aor2PasPtc) by G3844 the way side G3598.
[20] But G1161 he that received the seed G4687 (Aor2PasPtc) into G1909 stony places G4075, the same G3778 is G2076 (PresInd) he that heareth G191 (PresActPtc) the word G3056, and G2532 anon G2117 with G3326 joy G5479 receiveth G2983 (PresActPtc) it G846;
[21] Yet G1161 hath he G2192 (PresActInd) not G3756 root G4491 in G1722 himself G1438, but G235 dureth G2076 (PresInd) for a while G4340: for G1161 when tribulation G2347 or G2228 persecution G1375 ariseth G1096 (Aor2MidDepPtc) because G1223 of the word G3056, by and by G2117 he is offended G4624 (PresPasInd).
[22] He also G1161 that received seed G4687 (Aor2PasPtc) among G1519 the thorns G173 is G2076 (PresInd) he that G3778 heareth G191 (PresActPtc) the word G3056; and G2532 the care G3308 of this G5127 world G165, and G2532 the deceitfulness G539 of riches G4149, choke G4846 (PresActInd) the word G3056, and G2532 he becometh G1096 (PresMidPasDepInd) unfruitful G175.
[23] But G1161 he that received seed G4687 (Aor2PasPtc) into G1909 the good G2570 ground G1093 is G2076 (PresInd) he G3778 that heareth G191 (PresActPtc) the word G3056, and G2532 understandeth G4920 (PresActPtc) [it]; which G3739 also G1211 beareth fruit G2592 (PresActInd), and G2532 bringeth forth G4160 (PresActInd), some G3739 G3303 an hundredfold G1540, G1161 some G3739 sixty G1835, G1161 some G3739 thirty G5144.
[24] Another G243 parable G3850 put he forth G3908 (AorActInd) unto them G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), The kingdom G932 of heaven G3772 is likened G3666 (AorPasInd) unto a man G444 which sowed G4687 (PresActPtc) G4687 (AorActPtc) good G2570 seed G4690 in G1722 his G846 field G68:
[25] But G1161 while G1722 men G444 slept G2518 (PresActInf), his G846 enemy G2190 came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) and G2532 sowed G4687 (AorActInd) tares G2215 among G303 G3319 the wheat G4621, and G2532 went his way G565 (Aor2ActInd).
[26] But G1161 when G3753 the blade G5528 was sprung up G985 (AorActInd), and G2532 brought forth G4160 (AorActInd) fruit G2590, then G5119 appeared G5316 (Aor2PasDepSubj) the tares G2215 also G2532.
[27] So G1161 the servants G1401 of the householder G3617 came G4334 (Aor2ActPtc) and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Sir G2962, didst G4687 not G3780 thou sow G4687 (AorActInd) good G2570 seed G4690 in G1722 thy G4674 field G68? from whence G4159 then G3767 hath it G2192 (PresActInd) tares G2215?
[28] G1161 He said G5346 (ImpfInd) unto them G846, An enemy G2190 G444 hath done G4160 (AorActInd) this G5124. G1161 The servants G1401 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Wilt thou G2309 (PresActInd) then G3767 that we go G565 (Aor2ActPtc) and gather G4816 them G846 up G4816 (AorActSubj)?
[29] But G1161 he said G5346 (ImpfInd), Nay G3756; lest G3379 while ye gather up G4816 (PresActPtc) the tares G2215, ye root up G1610 (AorActSubj) also the wheat G4621 with G260 them G846.
[30] Let G863 (Aor2ActImpr) both G297 grow together G4885 (PresPasInf) until G3360 the harvest G2326: and G2532 in G1722 the time G2540 of harvest G2326 I will say G2046 (FutActInd) to the reapers G2327, Gather ye together G4816 (AorActImpr) first G4412 the tares G2215, and G2532 bind G1210 (AorActImpr) them G846 in G1519 bundles G1197 to G4314 burn G2618 (AorActInf) them G846: but G1161 gather G4863 (Aor2ActImpr) the wheat G4621 into G1519 my G3450 barn G596.
[31] Another G243 parable G3850 put he forth G3908 (AorActInd) unto them G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), The kingdom G932 of heaven G3772 is G2076 (PresInd) like G3664 to a grain G2848 of mustard seed G4615, which G3739 a man G444 took G2983 (Aor2ActPtc), and sowed G4687 (AorActInd) in G1722 his G846 field G68:
[32] Which G3739 indeed G3303 is G2076 (PresInd) the least G3398 of all G3956 seeds G4690: but G1161 when G3752 it is grown G837 (AorPasSubj), it is G2076 (PresInd) the greatest G3187 among herbs G3001, and G2532 becometh G1096 (PresMidPasDepInd) a tree G1186, so that G5620 the birds G4071 of the air G3772 come G2064 (Aor2ActInf) and G2532 lodge G2681 (PresActInf) in G1722 the branches G2798 thereof G846.
[33] Another G243 parable G3850 spake he G2980 (AorActInd) unto them G846; The kingdom G932 of heaven G3772 is G2076 (PresInd) like G3664 unto leaven G2219, which G3739 a woman G1135 took G2983 (Aor2ActPtc), and hid G1470 (AorActInd) in G1519 three G5140 measures G4568 of meal G224, till G2193 the whole G3650 was G3739 leavened G2220 (AorPasInd).
[34] All G3956 these things G5023 spake G2980 (AorActInd) Jesus G2424 unto the multitude G3793 in G1722 parables G3850; and G2532 without G5565 a parable G3850 spake he G2980 (ImpfActInd) not G3756 unto them G846:
[35] That G3704 it might be fulfilled G4137 (AorPasSubj) which G3588 was spoken G4483 (AorPasPtc) by G1223 the prophet G4396, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), I will open G455 (FutActInd) my G3450 mouth G4750 in G1722 parables G3850; I will utter G2044 (FutMidDepInd) things which have been kept secret G2928 (PerfPasPtc) from G575 the foundation G2602 of the world G2889.
[36] Then G5119 Jesus G2424 sent G863 the multitude G3793 away G863 (Aor2ActPtc), and went G2064 (Aor2ActInd) into G1519 the house G3614: and G2532 his G846 disciples G3101 came G4334 (AorActInd) unto him G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Declare G5419 (AorActImpr) unto us G2254 the parable G3850 of the tares G2215 of the field G68.
[37] He answered G611 (AorPasDepPtc) and G1161 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto them G846, He that soweth G4687 (PresActPtc) the good G2570 seed G4690 is G2076 (PresInd) the Son G5207 of man G444;
[38] G1161 The field G68 is G2076 (PresInd) the world G2889; G1161 the good G2570 seed G4690 are G3778 G1526 (PresInd) the children G5207 of the kingdom G932; but G1161 the tares G2215 are G1526 (PresInd) the children G5207 of the wicked G4190 [one];
[39] G1161 The enemy G2190 that sowed G4687 (AorActPtc) them G846 is G2076 (PresInd) the devil G1228; G1161 the harvest G2326 is G2076 (PresInd) the end G4930 of the world G165; and G1161 the reapers G2327 are G1526 (PresInd) the angels G32.
[40] As G5618 therefore G3767 the tares G2215 are gathered G4816 (PresPasInd) and G2532 burned G2618 (PresPasInd) in the fire G4442; so G3779 shall it be G2071 (FutInd) in G1722 the end G4930 of this G5127 world G165.
[41] The Son G5207 of man G444 shall send forth G649 (FutActInd) his G846 angels G32, and G2532 they shall gather G4816 (FutActInd) out of G1537 his G846 kingdom G932 all things G3956 that offend G4625, and G2532 them which do G4160 (PresActPtc) iniquity G458;
[42] And G2532 shall cast G906 (FutActInd) them G846 into G1519 a furnace G2575 of fire G4442: there G1563 shall be G2071 (FutInd) wailing G2805 and G2532 gnashing G1030 of teeth G3599.
[43] Then G5119 shall the righteous G1342 shine forth G1584 (FutActInd) as G5613 the sun G2246 in G1722 the kingdom G932 of their G846 Father G3962. Who G3588 hath G2192 (PresActPtc) ears G3775 to hear G191 (PresActInf), let him hear G191 (PresActImpr).
[44] Again G3825, the kingdom G932 of heaven G3772 is G2076 (PresInd) like G3664 unto treasure G2344 hid G2928 (PerfPasPtc) in G1722 a field G68; the which G3739 when a man G444 hath found G2147 (Aor2ActPtc), he hideth G2928 (AorActInd), and G2532 for G575 joy G5479 thereof G846 goeth G5217 (PresActInd) and G2532 selleth G4453 (PresActInd) all G3956 that G3745 he hath G2192 (PresActInd), and G2532 buyeth G59 (PresActInd) that G1565 field G68.
[45] Again G3825, the kingdom G932 of heaven G3772 is G2076 (PresInd) like G3664 unto a merchant G1713 man G444, seeking G2212 (PresActPtc) goodly G2570 pearls G3135:
[46] Who G3739, when he had found G2147 (Aor2ActPtc) one G1520 pearl G3135 of great price G4186, went G565 (Aor2ActPtc) and sold G4097 (PerfActInd) all G3956 that G3745 he had G2192 (ImpfActInd), and G2532 bought G59 (AorActInd) it G846.
[47] Again G3825, the kingdom G932 of heaven G3772 is G2076 (PresInd) like G3664 unto a net G4522, that was cast G906 (AorPasPtc) into G1519 the sea G2281, and G2532 gathered G4863 (Aor2ActPtc) of G1537 every G3956 kind G1085:
[48] Which G3739, when G3753 it was full G4137 (AorPasInd), they drew G307 (AorActPtc) to G1909 shore G123, and G2532 sat down G2523 (AorActPtc), and gathered G4816 (AorActInd) the good G2570 into G1519 vessels G30, but G1161 cast G906 (Aor2ActInd) the bad G4550 away G1854.
[49] So G3779 shall it be G2071 (FutInd) at G1722 the end G4930 of the world G165: the angels G32 shall come forth G1831 (FutMidDepInd), and G2532 sever G873 (FutActInd) the wicked G4190 from G1537 among G3319 the just G1342,
[50] And G2532 shall cast G906 (FutActInd) them G846 into G1519 the furnace G2575 of fire G4442: there G1563 shall be G2071 (FutInd) wailing G2805 and G2532 gnashing G1030 of teeth G3599.
[51] Jesus G2424 saith G3004 (PresActInd) unto them G846, Have ye understood G4920 (AorActInd) all G3956 these G5023 things G3956? They say G3004 (PresActInd) unto him G846, Yea G3483, Lord G2962.
[52] Then G1161 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) he unto them G846, Therefore G1223 G5124 every G3956 scribe G1122 [which is] instructed G3100 (AorPasPtc) unto G1519 the kingdom G932 of heaven G3772 is G2076 (PresInd) like G3664 unto a man G444 [that is] an householder G3617, which G3748 bringeth forth G1544 (PresActInd) out of G1537 his G846 treasure G2344 [things] new G2537 and G2532 old G3820.
[53] And G2532 it came to pass G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd), [that] when G3753 Jesus G2424 had finished G5055 (AorActInd) these G5025 parables G3850, he departed G3332 (AorActInd) thence G1564.
[54] And G2532 when he was come G2064 (Aor2ActPtc) into G1519 his own G846 country G3968, he taught G1321 (ImpfActInd) them G846 in G1722 their G846 synagogue G4864, insomuch that G5620 they G846 were astonished
