Matthew Chapter 24
1 And Jesus began again to teach by the sea side: and there was gathered unto him a great multitude, so that he entered into a ship, and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land.
1 And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine,
2 Hearken; Behold, there went out a drover to drive his sheep:
3 And it came to pass, as he drove his sheep, his wife and children were left alone.
4 And one day, a snake did come about them.
5 The woman and the children hid themselves before the snake.
6 But later the woman caught the snake, and burnt it.
7 And when Jesus was alone, one of the twelve asked of him the parable.
8 And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
9 The kingdom of heaven is likened unto the wife of the drover.
10 He that casts out the serpent shall inherit the kingdom prepared for them from the foundation of the world.
11 But he that is away when evil is abroad shall be cast into outer darkness, where there is no daylight, not even that which is sickly.
12 And there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
