3. The Parable of the Seed
26 And He said, So is the 1akingdom of God: as if a 2man cast 3bseed on the earth,
27 And 1sleeps and rises night and day, and the seed sprouts and 2lengthens -- how, he does not know.
28 The 1earth bears fruit 2by itself: first a blade, then an ear, then full grain in the ear.
29 But when the fruit is ripe, aimmediately he sends forth the 1bsickle, because the harvest has come.
