44 ‘The kingdom of heaven is like treasure
hidden in a field, which someone found and hid; then in his joy
he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.
the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls;
finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had
and bought it.
the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was thrown into the sea
and caught fish of every kind;
when it was full, they drew it ashore, sat down, and put the good
into baskets but threw out the bad.
it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come out and separate
the evil from the righteous
throw them into the furnace of fire, where there will be weeping
and gnashing of teeth.
