1 The kingdom of God is like a grain of mustard seed.
When it is sown in the earth, it is the smallest seed.
It is like the kingdom of God and a mystery.
2 For when it is sown, it grows into the largest plant,
greater than all of the herbs, and grows into a tree.
3 It grows so birds can rest inside its crown of leaves,
deep in its shadows, away from any evil prey.
4 And so we can liken it to seeds which make a tree
larger than all of the trees from just the smallest seed.
