The Evangeliad (17:27-29)


Section 17:27-29 (corresponding to Matt. 13:43-46)

So if you have ears to hear this, then hear:
The kingdom is like a treasure most dear--
That treasure, so costly, was hid in the ground,
And then by a certain man it was found;

He hid it again, then went forth and sold
All that he had, just to get enough gold
To purchase that field where treasure was stored--
So give up your all and come to the Lord!

The kingdom of heaven is much like a pearl,
The most valuable pearl in all the world--
If a merchant had found a pearl like that,
He'd give all to have it, and hold nothing back.
