Just then a Samaritan was going into Judea carrying a lamb. He <=Jesus> said to His disciples: "What <will> this man <do> with the lamb?" They answered: "He will kill it and eat it!" But he said to them: "He will not eat it as long as it is still alive, but only if he kills it and it becomes a corpse." They said to him: "In no other way will he hurt it!" <Then> he said to them: "You yourselves, then, seek a place of rest so that you do not become corpses and are eaten!"
Jesus says: "The Kingdom of the Father is like a man who has [good] seed <in his field.> By night his enemy came and sowed tares over the seed which is good. <But> this man did not allow them <his servants> to pluck up the tares, 'for fear', he told them, 'that in going to take away the tares, you carry off the wheat with it. But on the harvest day the tares will be recognisable; they will be taken away and burnt.'"
