1በዚያኑ ቀን ኢየሱስ ከቤት ወጥቶ በባሕሩ ዳር አጠገብ ተቀመጠ። 2ብዙ ሕዝብም ስለ ከበበው በባሕሩ ዳር ትቶአቸው ጀልባ ላይ ወጥቶ ተቀመጠ። 3ብዙ ነገሮችን በምሳሌ እንዲህ ሲል ነገራቸው፤ “አንድ ገበሬ ዘር ሊዘራ ወጣ። 4ሲዘራም ሳለ፣ አንዳንዱ ዘር መንገድ ዳር ወደቀ፤ ወፎችም መጥተው ለቅመው በሉት። 5አንዳንዱ ዘር ዐፈሩ ስስ በሆነ፣ ድንጋያማ መሬት ላይ ወደቀ፤ ዐፈሩ ስስ ስለ ሆነም ፈጥኖ በቀለ። 6ነገር ግን ፀሓይ ሲመታው ጠወለገ፤ ሥር ባለ መስደዱም ደረቀ። 7አንዳንዱም ዘር በእሾኽ መካከል ወደቀ፤ እሾኹም አደገና ቡቃያውን አንቆ አስቀረው፤ 8ሌላው ዘር ደግሞ በጥሩ መሬት ላይ ወደቀ፤ ፍሬም አፈራ፤ አንዱ መቶ፣ አንዱ ሥልሳ፣ አንዱም ሠላሳ ፍሬ ሰጠ። 9ሰሚ ጆሮ ያለው ይስማ!”።

10ከዚያም ደቀ መዛሙርቱ ወደ እርሱ ቀርበው፣ “ለምን ለሕዝቡ በምሳሌ ትናገራለህ?” አሉት።

11እርሱም እንዲህ አላቸው፤ “ለእናንተ የመንግሥተ ሰማይን ምስጢር ማወቅ ተሰጥቶአችኋል፤ ለእነርሱ ግን አልተሰጣቸውም። 12ላለው ይጨመርለታል፤ ይበዛለትማል፤ ከሌለው ግን ያ ያለው እንኳ ይወሰድበታል። 13ስለዚህ እንዲህ በማለት በምሳሌ የምነግራቸው ለዚህ ነው፤

“እያዩ ስለማያዩ፣

እየሰሙ ስለማይሰሙ ወይም ስለማያስተውሉ ነው።

14እንዲህ ተብሎ የተነገረው የኢሳይያስ ትንቢት በእነርሱ ይፈጸማል፤

“ ‘መስማትንስ ትሰማላችሁ፤ ነገር ግን አታስተውሉም፤

ማየትንም ታያላችሁ፤ ነገር ግን ልብ አትሉም።

15የሕዝቡ ልብ ደንድኖአልና፤

ጆሮአቸውም አይሰማም፤

እንዳያዩም ዐይናቸውን ጨፍነዋል፤

ይህ ባይሆን ኖሮ፣ በዐይናቸው አይተው፣

በጆሮአችው ሰምተው፣

በልባቸውም አስተውለው፣

ወደ እኔ በተመለሱና በፈወስኋቸው ነበር።’

16የእናንተ ዐይኖች ስለሚያዩ፣ ጆሮዎቻችሁም ስለሚሰሙ ግን የተባረኩ ናቸው። 17እውነት እላችኋለሁ፤ ብዙ ነቢያትና ብዙ ጻድቃን እናንተ የምታዩትን ለማየትና የምትሰሙትንም ለመስማት ተመኝተው ነበር፤ ግን አልሆነላቸውም።

18“እንግዲህ የዘሪውን ምሳሌ ስሙ፤ 19የእግዚአብሔርን መንግሥት ቃል ሰምቶ ከማያስተውል ከማንኛውም ሰው ልብ ውስጥ ክፉው መጥቶ የተዘራውን ዘር ይነጥቃል። ይህ እንግዲህ በመንገድ ዳር የተዘራው ዘር ነው። 20በድንጋያማ መሬት ላይ የተዘራው፣ ቃሉን ሰምቶ ወዲያውኑ በደስታ የሚቀበለውን ሰው ይመስላል። 21ነገር ግን ሥር መስደድ ባለመቻሉ ብዙ አይቈይም፤ በቃሉ ምክንያት መከራ ወይም ስደት ሲመጣ ወዲያውኑ ይሰናከላል። 22በእሾኽ መካከል የተዘራው ዘር ቃሉን ሰምቶ ለዚህ ዓለም በመጨነቅና በብልጽግና ሐሳብ በመታለል ታንቆ ያላፈራውን ሰው ይመስላል። 23በጥሩ መሬት ላይ የተዘራው ዘር ግን ቃሉን ሰምቶ የሚያስተውለውን ሰው ይመስላል፤ በርግጥም ፍሬ ያፈራል፤ አንዱ መቶ፣ አንዱ ሥልሳ፣ አንዱም ሠላሳ ፍሬ ሰጠ።”

የእንክርዳዱ ምሳሌ

24ኢየሱስም ሌላ ምሳሌ እንዲህ ሲል ነገራቸው፤ “መንግሥተ ሰማይ በዕርሻው ቦታ ጥሩ ዘር የዘራን ሰው ትመስላለች። 25ነገር ግን ሰው ሁሉ ተኝቶ ሳለ፣ ጠላቱ መጥቶ በስንዴው መካከል እንክርዳድ ዘርቶ ሄደ። 26ስንዴው በቅሎ ማፍራት ሲጀምር እንክርዳዱም አብሮ ብቅ አለ።

27“የዕርሻው ባለቤት አገልጋዮችም ወደ እርሱ ቀርበው፣ ‘ጌታ ሆይ፤ በዕርሻህ ቦታ ጥሩ ዘር ዘርተህ አልነበረምን? እንክርዳዱ ከየት መጣ?’ አሉት።

28“እርሱም፣ ‘የጠላት ሥራ ነው’ አላቸው።

“አገልጋዮቹም፣ ‘እንክርዳዱን ሄደን እንድንነቅለው ትፈልጋለህ?’ ብለው ጠየቁት።

29“እርሱ ግን፣ ‘አይሆንም፤ ምክንያቱም እንክርዳዱን እንነቅላለን ስትሉ ስንዴውንም አብራችሁ ልትነቅሉ ትችላላችሁ፤ 30ተዉአቸው፤ እስከ መከር ጊዜ አብረው ይደጉ። በዚያን ጊዜ አጫጆቹን እንክርዳዱን አስቀድማችሁ ንቀሉ፤ በእሳትም እንዲቃጠል በየነዶው እሰሩት፤ ስንዴውን ግን ሰብስባችሁ በጐተራዬ ክተቱ እላቸዋለሁ’ አላቸው።”

የሰናፍጭና የእርሾ ምሳሌ

13፥31-32 ተጓ ምብ – ማር 4፥30-32

13፥31-33 ተጓ ምብ – ሉቃ 13፥18-21

31ሌላ ምሳሌ እንዲህ ሲል ነገራቸው፤ “መንግሥተ ሰማይ አንድ ሰው ወስዶ በዕርሻው ቦታ የዘራትን የሰናፍጭ ዘር ትመስላለች። 32የሰናፍጭ ዘር ከሌሎች ዘሮች ሁሉ ያነሰች ብትሆንም፣ ስታድግ ግን ከቊጥቋጦዎች ሁሉ በልጣ፣ የሰማይ ወፎች መጥተው በቅርንጫፎቿ ላይ እስኪያርፉ ድረስ ዛፍ ትሆናለች።”

33አሁንም ሌላ ምሳሌ እንዲህ ሲል ነገራቸው፤ “መንግሥተ ሰማይ ሴት ወስዳ ሊጡ በሙሉ እስኪቦካ ድረስ በሦስት መስፈሪያ13፥33 ምናልባት 22 ሊትር ያህል ዱቄት ውስጥ በመደባለቅ የሸሸገችውን እርሾ ትመስላለች።”

34ኢየሱስ ለሕዝቡ ይህን ሁሉ በምሳሌ ተናገረ፤ ምሳሌም ሳይጠቀም የነገራቸው አንድም ነገር አልነበረም። 35በዚህም በነቢዩ እንዲህ ተብሎ የተነገረው ተፈጸመ፤

“አፌን በምሳሌ እከፍታለሁ፤

ዓለም ከተፈጠረ ጀምሮ የተሰወረውንም እናገራለሁ።”

የእንክርዳዱ ምሳሌ ትርጕም

36ከዚያም ሕዝቡን ትቶ ወደ ቤት ገባ። ደቀ መዛሙርቱም ወደ እርሱ ቀርበው፣ “በዕርሻው ውስጥ ስላለው እንክርዳድ የተናገርኸውን ምሳሌ ትርጕም ንገረን” አሉት።

37እርሱም እንዲህ ሲል መለሰ፤ “ጥሩውን ዘር የዘራው የሰው ልጅ ነው፤ 38ዕርሻውም ይህ ዓለም ነው፤ ጥሩው ዘር የእግዚአብሔርን መንግሥት ልጆች ያመለክታል፤ እንክርዳዱም የክፉው ልጆች ናቸው፤ 39ዘርቶት የሄደው ጠላትም ዲያብሎስ ነው፤ መከሩ የዓለም መጨረሻ ሲሆን፣ አጫጆቹም መላእክት ናቸው።

40“እንክርዳዱ ተነቅሎ በእሳት እንደሚቃጠል ሁሉ በዓለም መጨረሻም እንዲሁ ይሆናል። 41የሰው ልጅ መላእክቱን ይልካል፤ እነርሱም ለኀጢአት ምክንያት የሆኑትንና ክፉ የሚያደርጉትን ሁሉ ለቅመው ከመንግሥቱ ያወጣሉ። 42ልቅሶና ጥርስ ማፋጨት ወዳለበት ወደ እቶን እሳት ይጥሏቸዋል። 43በዚያን ጊዜ ጻድቃን በአባታቸው መንግሥት እንደ ፀሓይ ያበራሉ። ሰሚ ጆሮ ያለው ይስማ።

የተደበቀ ሀብትና የዕንቍው ምሳሌ

44“መንግሥተ ሰማይ በዕርሻ ውስጥ የተደበቀ ሀብት ትመስላለች፤ አንድ ሰው ባገኛት ጊዜ መልሶ ሸሸጋት፤ ከመደሰቱም የተነሣ ሄዶ፤ ያለውን ሁሉ በመሸጥ ያንን የዕርሻ ቦታ ገዛ።

45“እንዲሁም መንግሥተ ሰማይ ውብ ዕንቍ የሚፈልግ ነጋዴ ትመስላለች፤ 46እጅግ ውድ የሆነ ዕንቍ ባገኘም ጊዜ ሄዶ ያለውን ሁሉ ሸጦ ገዛው።

የመረቡ ምሳሌ

47“ደግሞም መንግሥተ ሰማይ ወደ ባሕር ተጥሎ የዓሣ ዓይነቶችን የያዘ መረብ ትመስላለች፤ 48ዓሣ አጥማጆቹ መረቡ ሲሞላላቸው ጎትተው ወደ ባሕሩ ዳር አወጡት፤ ከዚያም ተቀምጠው ጥሩ ጥሩውን እየለዩ በቅርጫት ውስጥ ጨመሩ፤ መጥፎ መጥፎውን ግን ጣሉት። 49በዓለም መጨረሻም ልክ እንደዚሁ ይሆናል፤ መላእክት መጥተው ኀጢአተኞችን ከጻድቃን በመለየት፣ 50ልቅሶና ጥርስ ማፋጨት ወዳለበት ወደ እቶን እሳት ይጥሏቸዋል።”

51ኢየሱስ፣ “ይህ ሁሉ ገብቷችኋል?” አላቸው። እነርሱም፣ “አዎን” አሉት።

52እርሱም፣ “ስለዚህም የመንግሥተ ሰማይን ምስጢር የተረዳ ማንኛውም የኦሪት ሕግ መምህር፣ ከከበረ ሀብቱ ክምችት አዲሱንም አሮጌውንም የሚያወጣ ባለንብረት ይመስላል” አላቸው።

በገዛ አገሩ ያልተከበረው ነቢይ

13፥54-58 ተጓ ምብ – ማር 6፥1-6

53ኢየሱስ እነዚህን ምሳሌዎች እንደ ጨረሰ፣ ከዚያ ስፍራ ተነሥቶ ሄደ፤ 54ወደ ገዛ አገሩ መጣ፤ በምኵራባቸውም ሕዝቡን ያስተምር ጀመር። እነርሱም በመገረም እንዲህ አሉ፤ “ይህ ሰው ይህን ጥበብና እነዚህን ታምራት የማድረግ ኀይል ከየት አገኘ? 55ይህ የአናጢው ልጅ አይደለምን? የእናቱስ ስም ማርያም አይደለምን? ወንድሞቹስ ያዕቆብ፣ ዮሴፍ፣ ስምዖንና ይሁዳ አይደሉምን? 56እኅቶቹስ ከእኛው ጋር አይደሉምን? ታዲያ ይህ ሰው ይህን ሁሉ ከወዴት አገኘው?” 57ስለዚህም ሳይቀበሉት ቀሩ።

ኢየሱስ ግን፣ “ነቢይ የማይከበረው በራሱ አገርና በራሱ ቤት ብቻ ነው” አላቸው። 58ባለማመናቸውም ምክንያት ብዙ ታምራትን በዚያ አላደረገም።

King James Version

Matthew 13:1-58

1The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side. 2And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore. 3And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; 4And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: 5Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: 6And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. 7And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: 8But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. 9Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. 10And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? 11He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. 12For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. 13Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. 14And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: 15For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. 16But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. 17For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.

18¶ Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. 19When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. 20But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; 21Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended. 22He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. 23But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

24¶ Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: 25But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. 26But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? 28He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? 29But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. 30Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

31¶ Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: 32Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.

33¶ Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened. 34All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them: 35That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world. 36Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. 37He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; 38The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; 39The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. 40As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. 41The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; 42And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

44¶ Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.

45¶ Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: 46Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

47¶ Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind: 48Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away. 49So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just, 50And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 51Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord. 52Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.

53¶ And it came to pass, that when Jesus had finished these parables, he departed thence. 54And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works? 55Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? 56And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things? 57And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. 58And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.
