38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign i from thee.
39 But he answered, and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas.

26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tarés also.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest; and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them; but gather the wheat into my barn.
31 ¶ Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard-seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:

39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. 40 As, therefore, the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity,
