Matthew 13:34-36 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

Parables Fulfill Prophecy

34 Jesus spoke all these things to the crowds in parables, and he was saying nothing to them without a parable, 35 in order that what was spoken through the prophet would be fulfilled, who said,

“I will open my mouth in parables;
    I will proclaim what has been hidden since the creation.”[a][b]

The Parable of the Weeds Interpreted

36 Then he left the crowds and[c] came into the house, and his disciples came to him saying, “Explain the parable of the darnel in the field to us.”
