    Definitions for Matthew 13:26

    Tares - Weeds found in grain.

    Clarke's Commentary on Matthew 13:26

    When the blade was sprung up - then appeared the tares also - Satan has a shoot of iniquity for every shoot of grace; and, when God revives his work, Satan revives his also. No marvel, therefore, if we find scandals arising suddenly to discredit a work of grace, where God has begun to pour out his Spirit.

    Barnes' Notes on Matthew 13:26

    Then appeared the tares also - That is, then the tares were "first discovered." They had grown with the wheat, but were so much like it as not to be noticed until the wheat began to ripen.

    So true piety and false hopes are not known by professions, by "blades," and leaves, and flowers, but by the fruit.

    Wesley's Notes on Matthew 13:26

    13:26 When the blade was sprung up, then appeared the darnel - It was not discerned before: it seldom appears, as soon as the good seed is sown: all at first appears to be peace, and love, and joy.
