|18||Ἔλεγεν οὖν, Τίνι ὁμοία ἐστὶν ἡ βασιλεία τοῦ θεοῦ, καὶ τίνι ὁμοιώσω αὐτήν;
||'What is the kingdom of God like?' he continued.||The Parables of the Mustard Seed and the Leaven Lk.13.18-21 | Mt.13.31-33 | Mk.4.31-32
|19||ὁμοία ἐστὶν κόκκῳ σινάπεως, ὃν λαβὼν ἄνθρωπος ἐβαλεν εἰς κῆπον ἑαυτοῦ, καὶ ηὐξησεν καὶ ἐγένετο εἰς δένδρον, καὶ τὰ πετεινὰ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ κατεσκήνωσεν ἐν τοῖς κλάδοις αὐ τοῦ.
||'What shall I compare it with? It is like a mustard-seed which a man took and sowed in his garden; and it grew to be a tree and the birds came to roost among its branches.'|
|20||Καὶ πάλιν εἶπεν, Τίνι ὁμοιώσω τὴν βασιλείαν τοῦ θεοῦ;
||Again he said, 'What shall I compare the kingdom of God with?||
|21||ὁμοία ἐστὶν ζύμῃ, ἣν λαβοῦσα γυνὴ [ἐν]έκρυψεν εἰς ἀλεύρου σάτα τρία ἑως οὗ ἐζυμώθη ὁλον.
||It is like yeast which a woman took and mixed with half a hundredweight of flour till it was all leavened.'|
