katapi HOME Mark 4:1-9 - The Parable of the Sower  Mk.4.1-9 (Plain of Gennesaret)- Mt.13.1-9, Lk.8.4-8 | KNSB Contents | notes

4 1 Again he began to teach beside the sea. And a very large crowd gathered about him, so that he got into a boat and sat in it on the sea; and the whole crowd was beside the sea on the land. 4 2 And he taught them many things in parables, and in his teaching he said to them: 4 3 "Listen! A sower went out to sow. 4 4 And as he sowed, some seed fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured it. 4 5 Other seed fell on rocky ground, where it had not much soil, and immediately it sprang up, since it had no depth of soil; 4 6 and when the sun rose it was scorched, and since it had no root it withered away. 4 7 Other seed fell among thorns and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no grain. 4 8 And other seeds fell into good soil and brought forth grain, growing up and increasing and yielding thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold." 4 9 And he said, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear."
