New American Standard (NAS) New International Version (NIV)
36 Then He left the crowds and went into the house. And His disciples came to Him and said, "Explain to us the parable of the tares 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 And He said, "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 and the field is the world; and as for the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; and the tares are the sons 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, and 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 "So just as the tares are gathered up and burned with fire, so shall 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.
41 "The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness, 41 The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil.
42 and will throw them into the furnace of fire; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 42 They will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
43 "Then THE RIGHTEOUS WILL SHINE FORTH AS THE SUN in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear. 43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.
