St. MATTHEW, XIII. 17. For 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.

ST. MARK, IV. saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

37. He answered, and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man :

38. The field is the world : the good seed are the children of the kingdom : but the tares are the children of the wicked one :

39. The enemy that sowed them is the devil : the harvest is the end of the world : and the reapers are the angels.

40. As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, 80 shall it be in the end of this world.

41. The 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;

43. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun,

in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear let him hear.

See v. 9. 44. Again, 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.

45. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchantman seeking goodly pearls :

46. Who when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.

47. | Again the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind :

48. Which when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels ; but cast the bad away.

49. So shall it be at the end of the world : the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just;
