Matthew 13:40 Meaning and Commentary

Matthew 13:40

As therefore the tares are gathered
As it is represented in the parable, that in the time of harvest, the tares shall be gathered out from the wheat first; and being bound in bundles, shall be

burnt in the fire,
prepared for that purpose,

so shall it be in the end of this world;
hypocritical and heretical men, and all formal professors, shall be gathered out from among the saints, and the several churches, among whom they have been; and shall be together cast into everlasting burnings, prepared for the devil and his angels, whose children they are.
