Matthew 13:39-43

Context
13:39 and the enemy who sows them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are angels. 13:40 As 1  the weeds are collected and burned with fire, so it will be at the end of the age. 13:41 The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather from his kingdom everything that causes sin as well as all lawbreakers. 2  13:42 They will throw them into the fiery furnace, 3  where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 13:43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. 4  The one who has ears had better listen! 5 

1 tn Grk “Therefore as.” Here οὖν (oun) has not been translated.

2 tn Grk “the ones who practice lawlessness.”

3 sn A quotation from Dan 3:6.

4 sn An allusion to Dan 12:3.

5 tn The translation “had better listen!” captures the force of the third person imperative more effectively than the traditional “let him hear,” which sounds more like a permissive than an imperative to the modern English reader. This was Jesus’ common expression to listen and heed carefully (cf. Matt 11:15, 13:9; Mark 4:9, 23; Luke 8:8, 14:35).
