39and the enemy who sowed them is the devil. 1The harvest is 2the close of the age, and the reapers are angels.40Just as the weeds 3are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at 4the close of the age.415The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all 6causes of sin and 7all law-breakers,428and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place 9there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.43Then 10the righteous will shine like the sun 11in the kingdom of their Father. 12He who has ears, let him hear.
47"Again, the kingdom of heaven is 19like a net that was thrown into the sea and 20gathered fish of every kind.48When it was full, 21men drew it ashore and sat down and sorted the good into containers but threw away the bad.49So it will be at 22the close of the age. The angels will come out and 23separate the evil from the righteous
