48. The parable of the fig tree. L. 13.
THERE were present at that season some that A. D. 31. told him of the Galilæans, whose blood Pilate 2 had mingled with their sacrifices. And Jesus answering said unto them, “Suppose ye that “ these Galilæans were sinners above all the
“ Galilæans, because they suffered such things? 3“ I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye 4“ shall all likewise perish. Or those eighteen,
upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and “ slew them, think ye that they were sinners 5“ above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem ? I
“ tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall 6“ all likewise perish.” He spake also this pa
rable; “A certain man had a fig tree planted • Is. 5. 2. “ in his vineyard; and he came and sought 7" fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he “ unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these “ three years I come seeking fruit on this fig
tree, and find none: cut it down; why cum
bereth it the ground? And he answering said “ unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, g“ till I shall dig about it, and dung it: and if “ it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that 66 thou shalt cut it down.”

49. The parable of the sower, and other parables.
M". 13. The same day went Jesus out of the house, 1 and sat by the sea side. And he began again Mk. 4. to teach by the sea side: and there was ga-1 thered unto him a great multitude, so that he entered into a ship, and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land. And he taught them many things by parables, 2 and said unto them in his doctrine, “ Hearken; 3
Behold, there went out ? a sower to sow:
and it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell 4 “ by the way side; and it was trodden down, L. 8. 5 " and the fowls of the air devoured it. And Mk. 4. some fell on
stony ground, where it had 5
up, because it had no depth of earth : but 6
“up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.
“ fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought
forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some
an hundred.” And when he had said these L. 8. 8 things, he cried, “He that hath ears to hear, “ let him hear."
And when he was alone, they that were about Mk.4.10 him with the twelve asked of him the parable, saying, What might this parable be? and why L. 8. 9 speakest thou unto them in parables? And he M". 13. said unto them, “Unto you it is given to know 10
“ the mystery of the kingdom of God: but Mk.4.11 + 1 Cor. 5. “ unto them that are without, all these things
are done in parables. For whosoever hath, M". 13. 1 Thess. 4. “ to him shall be given, and he shall have 12 1 Tim.3.7.
