6.27 He taught them another parable: “The heavenly kingdom is like a man who planted good seed, but at night his enemy came and planted wheat-like grass among the wheat. As the wheat matured the wheat-like grass appeared. So the landowners men came to ask him, Sir, didnt you plant good seed, how did the grass get into it? He replied, An enemy had done this. They asked, Should we pull it out? He said, No, you might uproot the wheat with it. Let them grow together. During harvest, the reapers will first bundle the grass and burn it, then gather the wheat into my barn.
