Matthew 13:24-35 KJV

24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying , The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
26 But when the blade was sprung up , and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this *. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up ?
29 But he said , Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
31 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying , The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took , and sowed in his field:
32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown , it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.
33 Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took , and hid in three measuresa of meal, till the whole was leavened .
