Matthew 13:24-26

Context
The Parable of the Weeds

13:24 He presented them with another parable: 1  “The kingdom of heaven is like a person who sowed good seed in his field. 13:25 But while everyone was sleeping, an enemy came and sowed weeds 2  among the wheat and went away. 13:26 When 3  the plants sprouted and bore grain, then the weeds also appeared.

1 tn Grk “He set before them another parable, saying.” The participle λέγων (legwn) is redundant and has not been translated.

2 tn Grk “sowed darnel.” The Greek term ζιζάνιον (zizanion) refers to an especially undesirable weed that looks like wheat but has poisonous seeds (L&N 3.30).

3 tn Here δέ (de) has not been translated.
