Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not say anything to them without using a parable.

All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:
American Standard Version
All these things spake Jesus in parables unto the multitudes; and without a parable spake he nothing unto them:
Young's Literal Translation
All these things spake Jesus in similes to the multitudes, and without a simile he was not speaking to them,
Matthew 13:34 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
All these things spoke Jesus - in parables - Christ descends from Divine mysteries to parables, in order to excite us to raise our minds, from and through natural things, to the great God, and the operations of his grace and Spirit. Divine things cannot be taught to man but through the medium of earthly things. If God should speak to us in that language which is peculiar to heaven, clothing those ideas which angelic minds form, how little should we comprehend of the things thus described! How great is our privilege in being thus taught! Heavenly things, in the parables of Christ, assume to themselves a body, and thus render themselves palpable.
