Ezekiel 20:49 (King James Version)
Then said I, Ah Lord GOD! they say of me, Doth he not speak parables?
- Is it not his usual custom to deal in enigmas? His figures are not to be understood; we should not trouble ourselves with them. God therefore commands the prophet to declare, in the next chapter, the same things in the plainest terms, so that they should not complain of his parables.
- Matthew 13:13 Matthew 13:14 ; John 16:25 ; Acts 17:18
