The Book of Jeremiah
Mark 13:28 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her
branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that
summer is near:
Matthew 13:24 Another parable put he forth unto them,
saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which
good seed in his field:
25 But while men slept, his enemy came and
sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
Matthew 13:38 The field is the world; the
are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children
of the wicked one;
39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil;
the harvest is the end of the world; and the
reapers are the
40 As therefore the tares are gathered and
burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
Jeremiah 24:1 The Lord shewed me, and, behold, two baskets of figs were
set before the temple of the Lord, after that Nebuchadrezzar king of
Babylon had carried away captive Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of
Judah, and the princes of Judah, with the carpenters and smiths, from
Jerusalem, and had brought them to Babylon.
2 One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are first ripe:
and the other basket had very naughty figs, which could not be eaten,
they were so bad.
3 Then said the Lord unto me, What seest thou, Jeremiah? And I said,
Figs; the good figs, very good; and the evil, very evil, that cannot be
eaten, they are so evil.
4 Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
5 Thus saith the Lord, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will
I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have
sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for their good.
6 For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them
again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I
will plant them, and not pluck them up.
7 And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the Lord: and they
shall be My people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto
me with their whole heart.
8 And as the evil figs, which cannot be eaten, they are so evil; surely
thus saith the Lord, So will I give Zedekiah the king of Judah, and his
princes, and the residue of Jerusalem, that remain in this land, and
them that dwell in the land of Egypt:
9 And I will deliver them to be removed into all the kingdoms of the
earth for their hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a
curse, in all places whither I shall drive them.
10 And I will send the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, among
them, till they be consumed from off the land that I gave unto them and
to their fathers.
