Matthew - Chapter 13
FREE Catholic Classes
1 That same day, Jesus left the house and sat by the lakeside,
15 This people's heart has grown coarse, their ears dulled, they have shut their eyes tight to avoid using their eyes to see, their ears to hear, their heart to understand, changing their ways and being healed by me.
17 In truth I tell you, many prophets and upright people longed to see what you see, and never saw it; to hear what you hear, and never heard it.
19 When anyone hears the word of the kingdom without understanding, the Evil One comes and carries off what was sown in his heart: this is the seed sown on the edge of the path.
27 The owner's labourers went to him and said, "Sir, was it not good seed that you sowed in your field? If so, where does the darnel come from?"
34 In all this Jesus spoke to the crowds in parables; indeed, he would never speak to them except in parables.
37 He said in reply, 'The sower of the good seed is the Son of man.
40 Well then, just as the darnel is gathered up and burnt in the fire, so it will be at the end of time.
42 and throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and grinding of teeth.
43 Then the upright will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Anyone who has ears should listen!
44 'The kingdom of Heaven is like treasure hidden in a field which someone has found; he hides it again, goes off in his joy, sells everything he owns and buys the field.
45 'Again, the kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls;
47 'Again, the kingdom of Heaven is like a dragnet that is cast in the sea and brings in a haul of all kinds of fish.
50 to throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and grinding of teeth.
56 His sisters, too, are they not all here with us? So where did the man get it all?'
