The Parable of the Tares - the Enemy Sows Bad Seed Among the Wheat
"Another parable set he before them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man that sowed good seed in his field: but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares also among the wheat, and went away." Matthew 13:24-25 ASV
