The scriptures below are from the WEB Bible.
12) Now when Jesus heard that John was delivered up, he withdrew into Galilee.
13) Leaving Nazareth, he came and lived in Capernaum, which is by the sea, in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali,
14) that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying,
15) "The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, Toward the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles,
16) The people who sat in darkness saw a great light, To those who sat in the region and shadow of death, To them did light spring up."
17) From that time, Jesus began to preach, and to say, "Repent! For the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand."
1) On that day Jesus went out of the house, and sat by the seaside.
2) Great multitudes gathered to him, so that he entered into a boat, and sat, and all the multitude stood on the beach.
3) He spoke to them many things in parables, saying, "Behold, the farmer went forth to sow.
4) As he sowed, some seeds fell by the roadside, and the birds came and devoured them.
5) Others fell on rocky ground, where they didn‘t have much soil, and immediately they sprang up, because they had no deepness of earth.
6) When the sun had risen, they were scorched. Because they had no root, they withered away.
7) Others fell on thorns. The thorns grew up and choked them:
8) and others fell on good soil, and yielded fruit: some one hundred times, some sixty, and some thirty.
9) He who has ears to hear, let him hear."
10) The disciples came, and said to him, "Why do you speak to them in parables?"
11) He answered them, "To you it is given to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of Heaven, but it is not given to them.
12) For whoever has, to him will be given, and he will have abundance, but whoever doesn‘t have, from him will be taken away even that which he has.
13) Therefore I speak to them in parables, because seeing they don‘t see, and hearing, they don‘t hear, neither do they understand.
14) In them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says, ‘By hearing you will hear, and will in no way understand; Seeing you will see, and will in no way perceive:
15) For this people‘s heart has grown callous, Their ears are dull of hearing, Their eyes they have closed; Or else perhaps they might perceive with their eyes, Hear with their ears, Understand with their heart, And should turn again; And I would heal them.‘
16) "But blessed are your eyes, for they see; and your ears, for they hear.
17) For most assuredly I tell you that many prophets and righteous men desired to see the things which you see, and didn‘t see them; and to hear the things which you hear, and didn‘t hear them.
18) "Hear, then, the parable of the farmer.
19) When anyone hears the word of the kingdom, and doesn‘t understand it, the evil one comes, and snatches away that which has been sown in his heart. This is what was sown by the roadside.
20) What was sown on the rocky places, this is he who hears the word, and immediately with joy receives it;
21) yet he has no root in himself, but endures for a while. When oppression or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he stumbles.
22) What was sown among the thorns, this is he who hears the word, but the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful.
23) What was sown on the good ground, this is he who hears the word, and understands it, who most assuredly bears fruit, and brings forth, some one hundred times, some sixty, some thirty."
24) He set another parable before them, saying, "The Kingdom of Heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field,
25) but while people slept, his enemy came and sowed darnel also among the wheat, and went away.
26) But when the blade sprang up and brought forth fruit, then the darnel appeared also.
27) The servants of the householder came and said to him, ‘Sir, didn‘t you sow good seed in your field? Where did this darnel come from?‘
28) He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.‘ The servants asked him, ‘Do you want us to go and gather them up?‘
29) But he said, ‘No, lest perhaps while you gather up the darnel, you root up the wheat with them.
30) Let both grow together until the harvest, and in the harvest time I will tell the reapers, "First, gather up the darnel, and bind them in bundles to burn them; but gather the wheat into my barn."‘"
31) He set another parable before them, saying, "The Kingdom of Heaven is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field;
32) which indeed is smaller than all seeds. But when it is grown, it is greater than the herbs, and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in its branches."
33) He spoke another parable to them. "The Kingdom of Heaven is like yeast, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, until it was all leavened."
34) Jesus spoke all these things in parables to the multitudes; and without a parable, he didn‘t speak to them,
35) that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through the prophet, saying, "I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things hidden from the foundation of the world."
36) Then Jesus sent the multitudes away, and went into the house. His disciples came to him, saying, "Explain to us the parable of the darnel of the field."
37) He answered them, "He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man,
38) the field is the world; and the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; and the darnel are the sons of the evil one.
39) The enemy who sowed them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are angels.
40) As therefore the darnel is gathered up and burned with fire; so will it be in the end of this age.
41) The Son of Man will send forth his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all things that cause stumbling, and those who do iniquity,
42) and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be weeping and the gnashing of teeth.
43) Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear.
44) "The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found, and hid. In his joy, he goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field.
45) "Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a man who is a merchant seeking fine pearls,
7) As you go, preach, saying, ‘The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.‘
17) When they saw him, they bowed down to him, but some doubted.
18) Jesus came to them and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth.
14) He was casting out a demon, and it was mute. It happened, when the demon had gone out, the mute man spoke; and the multitudes marveled.
15) But some of them said, "He casts out demons by Beelzebul, the prince of the demons."
16) Others, testing him, sought from him a sign from heaven.
17) But he, knowing their thoughts, said to them, "Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation. A house divided against itself falls.
18) If Satan also is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand? Because you say that I cast out demons by Beelzebul.
19) But if I cast out demons by Beelzebul, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore will they be your judges.
20) But if I by the finger of God cast out demons, then is the kingdom of God come to you.
1) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2) The same was in the beginning with God.
3) All things were made through him. Without him was not anything made that has been made.
4) In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
5) The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness hasn‘t overcome it.
6) There came a man, sent from God, whose name was John.
7) The same came as a witness, that he might testify about the light, that all might believe through him.
8) He was not the light, but was sent that he might testify about the light.
9) The true light that enlightens everyone was coming into the world.
10) He was in the world, and the world was made through him, and the world didn‘t recognize him.
11) He came to his own, and those who were his own didn‘t receive him.
12) But as many as received him, to them he gave the right to become God‘s children, to those who believe in his name:
13) who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14) The Word became flesh, and lived among us. We saw his glory, such glory as of the only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth.
15) John testified about him. He cried out, saying, "This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me, for he was before me.‘"
16) From his fullness we all received grace upon grace.
17) For the law was given through Moses. Grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
18) No one has seen God at any time. The only conceived Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he has declared him.
1) Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews.
2) The same came to him by night, and said to him, "Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do, unless God is with him."
3) Jesus answered him, "Most assuredly, I tell you, unless one is born anew, he can‘t see the kingdom of God."
4) Nicodemus said to him, "How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother‘s womb, and be born?"
5) Jesus answered, "Most assuredly I tell you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he can‘t enter into the kingdom of God!
6) That which is born of the flesh is flesh. That which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7) Don‘t marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born anew.‘
8) The wind blows where it wants to, and you hear its sound, but don‘t know where it comes from and where it is going. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit."
14) As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up,
15) that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16) For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
17) For God didn‘t send his Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through him.
18) He who believes in him is not judged. He who doesn‘t believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only born Son of God.
19) This is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light; for their works were evil.
20) For everyone who does evil hates the light, and doesn‘t come to the light, for fear that his works would be reproved.
21) But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his works may be revealed, that they have been done with God."
