41 The Son of Man will send out His angels, (A)and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, 42 (B)and will cast them into the furnace of fire. (C)There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43 (D)Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. (E)He who has ears to hear, let him hear!

The Parable of the Hidden Treasure

44 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and (F)sells all that he has and (G)buys that field.

The Parable of the Pearl of Great Price

45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, 46 who, when he had found (H)one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.

The Parable of the Dragnet

47 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet that was cast into the sea and (I)gathered some of every kind, 48 which, when it was full, they drew to shore; and they sat down and gathered the good into vessels, but threw the bad away. 49 So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, (J)separate the wicked from among the just, 50 and cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.”

51 [a]Jesus said to them, “Have you understood all these things?”

They said to Him, “Yes, [b]Lord.”

52 Then He said to them, “Therefore every [c]scribe instructed [d]concerning the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure (K)things new and old.”

Jesus Rejected at Nazareth(L)

53 Now it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these parables, that He departed from there. 54 (M)When He had come to His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished and said, “Where did this Man get this wisdom and these mighty works? 55 (N)Is this not the carpenter’s son? Is not His mother called Mary? And (O)His brothers (P)James, [e]Joses, Simon, and Judas? 56 And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this Man get all these things?” 57 So they (Q)were offended at Him.

But Jesus said to them, (R)“A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house.” 58 Now (S)He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.
