47“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a large net thrown into the sea. It collected every kind of fish, # Mt 3:2; 13:44; 22:10 48and when it was full, they dragged it ashore, sat down, and gathered the good fish into containers, but threw out the worthless ones. 49So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will go out, separate the evil people from the righteous, # Mt 13:39-40; 25:32 50and throw them into the blazing furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. # Mt 8:12; 13:42 51“Have you understood all these things? ” # Other mss add Jesus asked them “Yes,” they told Him. 52“Therefore,” He said to them, “every student of Scripture # Or every scribe instructed in the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who brings out of his storeroom what is new and what is old.” # Mt 12:35; 28:19 53When Jesus had finished these parables, He left there.
