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 hearts and should be converted and I should heal them but blessed are your eyes for they see and your ears for they hear for and blessed are you because these things are come unto you that you might understand them and verily I say unto you that many righteous prophets have desired to see these days which you see and have not seen them and to hear that which you hear and have not heard them
Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower when any one heareth the word of the Kingdom and understandeth not then cometh the wicked one and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart this is he who received seed by the way side but <​he​> that received the seed unto <​into​> stony places the same is hear he that heareth the word and readily with joy receiveth <​it​> yet he hath root in himself and endureth but for a while for when tribilathon or persecution ariseth because of the word by and by he is offended he also who received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word and the care of this world and the deceitfullness of riches choke the word and it <​he​> become<​th​> unfruitfull but he who received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word and understandeth <​it​> and endureth which also beareth fruit and bringeth <​forth​> some an Hundred fold some Sixty and some Thirty. Another parable put he forth unto them saying the Kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field but while he slept his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way but when the blade was sprung up and brought forth fruit then appeared the tares also. So the servents of the householder came and said unto him Sir didst not thou sow good seed in thy field from whence then hath it tares he said unto them an enemy hath done this and the servents said unto him wilt thou then that we go and gather them up but he said nay lest while ye gather up the tares ye root up also the wheat with them let both grow together till <​untill​> 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 [p. 34]
