13 Revised Standard Version Passage

18"Hear then the parable of the sower.The Parable of the Sower Explained Mt.13.18-23 | Mk.4.13-20 | Lk.8.11-13
19When any one hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what is sown in his heart; this is what was sown along the path. 
20As for what was sown on rocky ground, this is he who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; 
21yet he has no root in himself, but endures for a while, and when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately he falls away. Or: stumbles 
22As for what was sown among thorns, this is he who hears the word, but the cares of the world and the delight in riches choke the word, and it proves unfruitful. 
23As for what was sown on good soil, this is he who hears the word and understands it; he indeed bears fruit, and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty."
