30 Let both of them grow together until the harvest; and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, Collect the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.' " 30 Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.' "
31 He put before them another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field; 31 He told them another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field.
32 it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches." 32 Though it is the smallest of all your seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and perch in its branches."
33 He told them another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed in with three measures of flour until all of it was leavened." 33 He told them still another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into a large amount of flour until it worked all through the dough."

36 Then he left the crowds and went into the house. And his disciples approached him, saying, "Explain to us the parable of the weeds of the field." 36 Then he left the crowd and went into the house. His disciples came to him and said, "Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field."
37 He answered, "The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man; 37 He answered, "The one who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man.
38 the field is the world, and the good seed are the children of the kingdom; the weeds are the children of the evil one, 38 The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one,
39 and the enemy who sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are angels. 39 and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.
40 Just as the weeds are collected and burned up with fire, so will it be at the end of the age. 40 "As the weeds are pulled up and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the age.
