Another parable He set forth before them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field.
But while he was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed also darnel (weeds resembling wheat) among the wheat, and went on his way.
So when the plants sprouted and formed grain, the darnel (weeds) appeared also.
And the servants of the owner came to him and said, Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? Then how does it have darnel shoots in it?
He replied to them, An enemy has done this. The servants said to him, Then do you want us to go and weed them out?
But he said, No, lest in gathering the wild wheat (weeds resembling wheat), you root up the [true] wheat along with it.
