- 4 And when much people were gathered together (5752), and were come (5740) to him out of every city, he spake (5627) by a parable: 5 A sower (5723) went out (5627) to sow (5658) his seed: and as he sowed (5721), some * * fell (5627) by the way side; and it was trodden down (5681), and the fowls of the air devoured (5627) it. 6 And some fell (5627) upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up (5651), it withered away (5681), because it lacked * (5721) moisture. 7 And some fell (5627) among * * thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it (5651), and choked (5656) (5625) (5656) it. 8 And other fell (5627) on good ground, and sprang up (5651), and bare (5656) fruit an hundredfold. And when he had said (5723) these things, he cried (5707), He that hath (5723) ears to hear (5721), let him hear (5720). 9 And his disciples asked (5707) him, saying (5723), What might this parable be (5751)? 10 And he said (5627), Unto you it is given (5769) to know (5629) the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing (5723) they might not see (5725), and hearing (5723) they might not understand (5725). 11 Now the parable is (5748) this: The seed is (5748) the word of God. 12 Those by the way side are (5748) they that hear (5723); then cometh (5736) the devil, and taketh away (5719) the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe (5660) and be saved (5686). 13 They on the rock are they, which, when they hear (5661), receive (5736) the word with joy; and these have (5719) no root, which for a while believe (5719), and in time of temptation fall away (5736). 14 And that which fell (5631) among thorns are (5748) they, which, when they have heard (5660), go forth (5740), and are choked (5743) with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection (5719). 15 But that on the good ground are (5748) they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard (5660) the word, keep (5719) it, and bring forth fruit (5719) with patience. 16 No man, when he hath lighted (5660) a candle, covereth (5719) it with a vessel, or putteth (5719) it under a bed; but setteth (5719) it on a candlestick, that they which enter in (5740) may see (5725) the light. 17 For nothing is (5748) secret, that shall not be made (5695) manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known (5701) and come (5632) abroad *. 18 Take heed (5720) therefore how ye hear (5719): for whosoever * * hath (5725), to him shall be given (5701); and whosoever * * hath (5725) not, from him shall be taken (5701) even that which he seemeth (5719) to have (5721). 19 Then came (5633) to him his mother and his brethren, and could (5711) not come (5629) at him for the press. 20 And it was told (5648) him by certain which said (5723), Thy mother and thy brethren stand (5758) without, desiring (5723) to see (5629) thee. 21 And he answered (5679) and said (5627) unto them, My mother and my brethren are (5748) these which hear (5723) the word of God, and do (5723) it.
