EXPLAINING  the  PARABLE  of  the HARVEST
Matthew 13   Mark     Luke  
  36  Τότε ἀϕεὶς τοῦς ὄχλους    
  ἦλϑεν εἰς τὴν οἰκίαν.    
  "καὶ προσῆλϑον αὐτῷ    
  "οἱ μαϑηταὶ αὐτοῦ    
  λέγοντες·    
  Διασάϕησον ἡμῖν    
  τὴν παραβολὴν τῶν ζιζανίων    
  τοῦ ἀγροῦ.    
37 ὁ δὲ ἀποκριϑεὶς    
  εἶπεν·    
  σπείρων τὸ καλὸν σπέρμα ἐστὶν    
  ὁ υἱος τοῦ ανϑρώπου·    
38 ὁ δὲ ἀγρός ἐστιν ὁ κόσμος·    
  τὸ δὲ καλὸν σπέρμα,    
  οὗτοί εἰσιν οἱ υἱοὶ τῆς βασιλαίας·    
  τὰ δὲ ζιζάνιά εἰσιν    
  οἱ υἱοὶ τοῦ πονηροῦ,    
39 δὲ ἐχϑρὸς ὁ σπείρα αὐτά ἐστιν    
  ὁ διάβολος·    
  ὁ δὲ ϑερισμὸς    
  συντέλειᾳ αἰῶνός ἐστιν,    
  οἱ δὲ ϑερισταὶ ἄγελλοί εἰσιν.      
40 ὥσπερ οὖν συλλέγεται τὰ ζιζάνια    
  καὶ πυρὶ  κατακαίεται,    
  οὕτως ἔσται    
  ἐν τῇ συντελείᾳ τοῦ αἰῶνος.    
41 ἀποστελεῖ ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνϑρώπου    
  τοὺς ἀγέλλους αὐτοῦ,    
  καὶ συλλέξουσιν    
  ἐκ τῆς βασιλείας αὐτοῦ    
  πάντα τὰ σκάνδαλα     
  καὶ τοὺς ποιοῦντος τὴν ἀνομίαν,       
42 καὶ βαλοῦσιν αὐτοὺς    
  εἰς τὴν κάμινον τοῦ πυρός·    
  ἐκεῖ ἔσται ὁ κλαυϑμὸς     
  καὶ ὁ βρυγμὸς τῶν ὀδόντων.     
43 τότε οἱ δίκαιοι    
  ἐκλάμψουσιν ὡς ὁ ἥλιος    
  ἐν τῇ βασιλείᾳ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτῶν.     
  ἔχων ὦτα ἀκουέτω.
