'Darnel' in the Bible
and, while men are sleeping, his enemy came and sowed darnel in the midst of the wheat, and went away,
and when the herb sprang up, and yielded fruit, then appeared also the darnel.
'And the servants of the householder, having come near, said to him, Sir, good seed didst thou not sow in thy field? whence then hath it the darnel?
And he said, No, lest -- gathering up the darnel -- ye root up with it the wheat,
suffer both to grow together till the harvest, and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather up first the darnel, and bind it in bundles, to burn it, and the wheat gather up into my storehouse.'
Then having let away the multitudes, Jesus came to the house, and his disciples came near to him, saying, 'Explain to us the simile of the darnel of the field.'
and the field is the world, and the good seed, these are the sons of the reign, and the darnel are the sons of the evil one,
The enemy who sows the darnel is *the Devil*; the harvest is the Close of the Age; the reapers are the angels.
