Gospel 11-19-23. Matt 13: 31-35. Resumed Sixth Sunday after the Epiphany.
Another parable he proposed unto them, saying: The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field.
Aliam parabolam proposuit eis dicens : Similis est regnum caelorum grano sinapis, quod accipiens homo seminavit in agro suo :
32 Which is the least indeed of all seeds; but when it is grown up, it is greater than all herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come, and dwell in the branches thereof.
quod minimum quidem est omnibus seminibus : cum autem creverit, majus est omnibus oleribus, et fit arbor, ita ut volucres caeli veniant, et habitent in ramis ejus.
33 Another parable he spoke to them: The kingdom of heaven is like to leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, until the whole was leavened.
Aliam parabolam locutus est eis : Similis est regnum caelorum fermento, quod acceptum mulier abscondit in farinae satis tribus, donec fermentatum est totum.
34 All these things Jesus spoke in parables to the multitudes: and without parables he did not speak to them.
Haec omnia locutus est Jesus in parabolis ad turbas : et sine parabolis non loquebatur eis :
35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying: I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden from the foundation of the world.
ut impleretur quod dictum erat per prophetam dicentem : Aperiam in parabolis os meum; eructabo abscondita a constitutione mundi.
