4. The Parable of the Mustard Seed
30 1And He said, How shall we liken the akingdom of God, or in what parable shall we 2present it?
31 It is like a amustard seed, which, when it is sown on the earth, is smaller than all the seeds on the earth.
32 And when it is sown, it comes up and becomes 1greater than all the herbs and produces great branches, so that the 1birds of heaven can roost under its shade.
33 And in many such 1parables He spoke the aword to them as they were bable to hear;
34 And without a aparable He did not speak to them; but bprivately to His own disciples He explained all things.
