Matthew 13:27-30

27 Then the man's servants came to him and said, 'You planted good seed in your field. Where did the weeds come from?'
28 The man answered, 'An enemy planted weeds.' The servants asked, 'Do you want us to pull up the weeds?'
29 The man answered, 'No, because when you pull up the weeds, you might also pull up the wheat.
30 Let the weeds and the wheat grow together until the harvest time. At harvest time I will tell the workers, "First gather the weeds and tie them together to be burned. Then gather the wheat and bring it to my barn."'"

Matthew 13:27-30 In-Context

25 That night, when everyone was asleep, his enemy came and planted weeds among the wheat and then left.
26 Later, the wheat sprouted and the heads of grain grew, but the weeds also grew.
27 Then the man's servants came to him and said, 'You planted good seed in your field. Where did the weeds come from?'
28 The man answered, 'An enemy planted weeds.' The servants asked, 'Do you want us to pull up the weeds?'
29 The man answered, 'No, because when you pull up the weeds, you might also pull up the wheat.
30 Let the weeds and the wheat grow together until the harvest time. At harvest time I will tell the workers, "First gather the weeds and tie them together to be burned. Then gather the wheat and bring it to my barn."'"
31 Then Jesus told another story: "The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that a man planted in his field.
32 That seed is the smallest of all seeds, but when it grows, it is one of the largest garden plants. It becomes big enough for the wild birds to come and build nests in its branches."
