 11 And he answered and said to them, "Because it is given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. [See Footnote 1 in Mark 4 to understand why Jesus spoke in parables to hide the meaning of his words from some people.]

 12 For whoever has, to him more will be given, and he will have an abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him.
