He put before them another parable, saying: The kingdom of Heaven is compared to a man sowing good seed in his fields.
But while the men were sleeping, one hostile to him came and sowed darnel in the midst of the wheat, and went away.
And when the blade sprouted and produced fruit, then the darnel also appeared.
And coming near, the slaves of the housemaster said to him, Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? Then from where does it have the darnel?
And he said to them, A man, an enemy did this. And the slaves said to him, Do you desire, then, that going out we should gather them?
But he said, No, lest gathering the darnel you should uproot the wheat with them.
Allow both to grow together until the harvest. And in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, First gather the darnel, and bind them into bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my granary.
