Mark 4:10-13 And when He was alone, they who were about Him, with the Twelve, asked Him concerning the parable.  And He said to them, To you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God. But to those outside, all these things are given in parables so that seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.  And He said to them, Do you not know this parable? And how then will you know all parables?  

Mat 13:15-17  for this people's heart has become gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and they have closed their eyes, 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."  16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see; and your ears, for they hear. 17 For truly I say to you that many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which you see, and have not seen them; and to hear what you hear, and have not heard them.

18 Laborers hired

 

Matthew 20:1-16  For the kingdom of Heaven is like a man, a housemaster, who went out early in the morning to hire laborers into his vineyard. 2  And when he had agreed with the laborers for a denarius a day, he sent them into his vineyard. 3  And he went out about the third hour and saw others standing idle in the marketplace. 4  And he said to them, You also go into the vineyard, and whatever is right I will give you. And they went. 5  And he went out about the sixth and ninth hour and did likewise. 6  And about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing idle, and said to them, Why do you stand here all day idle? 7  They said to him, Because no one has hired us. He said to them, You also go into the vineyard, and you shall receive whatever is right. 8  So when evening had come, the lord of the vineyard said to his steward, Call the laborers and pay them their wage, beginning from the last to the first. 9  And when they who were hired about the eleventh hour came, they each one received a denarius. 10  But when the first came, they supposed that they would received more; and they also each one received a denarius. 11  And receiving it they murmured against the master of the house, 12  saying, These last have worked only one hour, and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden and heat of the day. 13  But he answered one of them and said, Friend, I do you no wrong. Did you not agree with me for a denarius? 14  Take yours, and go; I will give to this last one the same as to you. 15  Is it not lawful for me to do what I want with my own? Is your eye evil because I am good? 16  So the last shall be first, and the first last, for many are called, but few are chosen.
