4 Revised Standard Version Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

30And he said, "With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable shall we use for it?The Parable of the Mustard Seed Mk.4.30-32 | Mt.13.31-33 | Lk.13.18-21Καὶ ἐλεγεν, Πῶς ὁμοιώσωμεν τὴν βασιλείαν τοῦ θεοῦ, ἢ ἐν τίνι αὐτὴν παραβολῇ θῶμεν;
31It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when sown upon the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth; ὡς κόκκῳ σινάπεως, ὃς ὁταν σπαρῇ ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς, μικρότερον ὂν πάντων τῶν σπερμάτων τῶν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς,
32yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes the greatest of all shrubs, and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade." καὶ ὁταν σπαρῇ, ἀναβαίνει καὶ γίνεται μεῖζον πάντων τῶν λαχάνων καὶ ποιεῖ κλάδους μεγάλους, ὡστε δύνασθαι ὑπὸ τὴν σκιὰν αὐτοῦ τὰ πετεινὰ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ κατασκηνοῦν.
