Thom 20 **
1 The disciples said to Jesus: "Tell us what the kingdom of heaven is like." 30 And he said, 2 He said to them: "<How shall> we compare* the kingdom of God, or what parable shall we use for it? 31 As a grain of mustard seed, "It is like a mustard seed. 3 [It] is the smallest of all seeds.* which, when <it is> sown 4 But when it falls upon the <earth>, upon prepared soil, is the smallest of all the seeds* <upon the> earth; 32 yet when it is sown <it rises up> and becomes the greatest of all shrubs, and puts forth large branches, it produces a large plant so that the birds of the air* can make nests in its shade." and becomes a shelter for the birds of the air.*
