Matthew 13 (ASV)
 On that day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.
 And there were gathered unto him great multitudes, so that he entered into a boat, and sat; and all the multitude stood on the beach.
 And he spake to them many things in parables, saying, Behold, the sower went forth to sow;
 and as he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the birds came and devoured them:
 and others fell upon the rocky places, where they had not much earth: and straightway they sprang up, because they had no deepness of earth:
 and when the sun was risen, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.
 And others fell upon the thorns; and the thorns grew up and choked them:
 and others fell upon the good ground, and yielded fruit, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
 He that hath ears, let him hear.
 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
 And he answered and said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that which he hath.
 Therefore speak I to them in parables; because seeing they see not, and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
 And unto them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall in no wise understand; And seeing ye shall see, and shall in no wise perceive:
 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, And their ears are dull of hearing, And their eyes they have closed; Lest haply they should perceive with their eyes, And hear with their ears, And understand with their heart, And should turn again, And I should heal them.
 But blessed are your eyes, for they see; and your ears, for they hear.
 For verily I say unto you, that many prophets and righteous men desired to see the things which ye see, and saw them not; and to hear the things which ye hear, and heard them not.
 Hear then ye the parable of the sower.
 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the evil one, and snatcheth away that which hath been sown in his heart. This is he that was sown by the way side.
 And he that was sown upon the rocky places, this is he that heareth the word, and straightway with joy receiveth it;
 yet hath he not root in himself, but endureth for a while; and when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, straightway he stumbleth.
 And he that was sown among the thorns, this is he that heareth the word; and the care of the world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
 And he that was sown upon the good ground, this is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; who verily beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
 Another parable set he before them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man that sowed good seed in his field:
 but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares also among the wheat, and went away.
 But when the blade sprang up and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
 And the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst thou not sow good seed in thy field? whence then hath it tares?
 And he said unto them, An enemy hath done this. And the servants say unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
 But he saith, Nay; lest haply while ye gather up the tares, ye root up the wheat with them.
 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather up first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them; but gather the wheat into my barn.
 Another parable set he before them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like unto a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:
 which indeed is less than all seeds; but when it is grown, it is greater than the herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the heaven come and lodge in the branches thereof.
 Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till it was all leavened.
 All these things spake Jesus in parables unto the multitudes; and without a parable spake he nothing unto them:
 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.
 Then he left the multitudes, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Explain unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
 And he answered and said, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
 and the field is the world; and the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; and the tares are the sons of the evil one;
 and the enemy that sowed them is the devil: and the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are angels.
 As therefore the tares are gathered up and burned with fire; so shall it be in the end of the world.
 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that cause stumbling, and them that do iniquity,
 and shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth.
 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He that hath ears, let him hear.
 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a treasure hidden in the field; which a man found, and hid; and in his joy he goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is a merchant seeking goodly pearls:
 and having found one pearl of great price, he went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:
 which, when it was filled, they drew up on the beach; and they sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but the bad they cast away.
 So shall it be in the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the righteous,
 and shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be the weeping and the gnashing of teeth.
 Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea.
 And he said unto them, Therefore every scribe who hath been made a disciple to the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is a householder, who bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.
 And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence.
 And coming into his own country he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?
 Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joseph, and Simon, and Judas?
 And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?
 And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honor, save in his own country, and in his own house.
 And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

Matthew 13 (KJVS)
 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.
 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.
 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);
 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):
 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:
 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).
 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:
 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.
 Who G3588 hath G2192 (PresActPtc) ears G3775 to hear G191 (PresActInf), let him hear G191 (PresActImpr).
 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?
 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).
 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).
 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).
 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):
 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.
 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).
 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].
 Hear G191 (AorActImpr) ye G5210 therefore G3767 the parable G3850 of the sower G4687 (PresActPtc).
 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.
 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;
 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).
 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.
 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.
 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:
 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).
 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.
 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?
 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)?
 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.
 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.
 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:
 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.
 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).
 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:
 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.
 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.
 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;
 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];
 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.
 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.
 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;
 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.
 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).
 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.
 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:
 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.
 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:
 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.

 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.
 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.
 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.
 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.
 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 G1605 (PresPasInf), and G2532 said G3004 (PresActInf), Whence G4159 hath this [man] G5129 this G3778 wisdom G4678, and G2532 [these] mighty works G1411?
 Is G2076 (PresInd) not G3756 this G3778 the carpenter’s G5045 son G5207? is G3004 not G3780 his G846 mother G3384 called G3004 (PresPasInd) Mary G3137? and G2532 his G846 bret
