Tares - Heshvan 22, 5774


Another parable He put forth to them, saying:
"The kingdom of heaven
is like a man who sowed
good seed in his field;
but while men slept,
his enemy came and sowed
tares among the wheat
and went his way.
But when the grain had sprouted
and produced a crop,
then the tares also appeared.
So the servants of the owner
came and said to him,
'Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field?
How then does it have tares?'
He said to them,
'An enemy has done this.'
The servants said to him,
'Do you want us then to go
and gather them up?'
But he said, "No, lest while you
gather up the tares
you also uproot the wheat with them.
Let both grow together
until the harvest,
and at the time of harvest
I will say to the reapers,
'First gather together the tares and bind them
in bundles to burn them,
but gather the wheat into my barn.'"
Matthew 13:24-30
