2:44And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.
13:1The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.
13:2And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.
13:3And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;
13:4And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:
13:5Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:
13:6And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.
13:7And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:
13:8But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
13:9Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
13:10And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?
13:11He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.
13:12For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.
13:13Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
13:14And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:
13:15For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
13:16But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
13:17For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.
13:18Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
13:19When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
13:20But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it;
13:21Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.
13:22He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful.
13:23But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
13:24Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
13:25But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
13:26But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
13:27So 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?
13:28He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
13:29But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
13:30Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
13:31Another 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:
13:32Which 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.
13:33Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.
13:34All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:
13:35That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.
13:36Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
13:37He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
13:38The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
13:39The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
13:40As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
13:41The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
13:42And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
13:43Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
13:44Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
13:45Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
13:46Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
13:47Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:
13:48Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.
13:49So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,
13:50And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
13:51Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.
13:52Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.
13:53And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence.
13:54And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?
13:55Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?
13:56And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things?
13:57And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house.
13:58And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.
22:1And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,
22:2The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,
22:3And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
22:4Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.
22:5But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:
22:6And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.
22:7But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.
22:8Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
22:9Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.
22:10So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.
22:11And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
22:12And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
22:13Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
22:14For many are called, but few are chosen.
13:22And he went through the cities and villages, teaching, and journeying toward Jerusalem.
13:23Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them,
13:24Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.
13:25When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:
13:26Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets.
13:27But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.
13:28There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.
13:29And they shall come from the east, and from the west, and from the north, and from the south, and shall sit down in the kingdom of God.
13:30And, behold, there are last which shall be first, and there are first which shall be last.
17:20And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation:
17:21Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
14:17For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
1:10That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:
1:20Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
1:21Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:
1:22And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church,
3:22Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.
