katapi HOME Mark 4:13-20 - The Parable of the Sower Explained  Mk.4.13-20- Mt.13.18-23, Lk.8.11-13 | KNSB Contents | notes

4 13 And he said to them, "Do you not understand this parable? How then will you understand all the parables? 4 14 The sower sows the word. 4 15 And these are the ones along the path, where the word is sown; when they hear, Satan immediately comes and takes away the word which is sown in them. 4 16 And these in like manner are the ones sown upon rocky ground, who, when they hear the word, immediately receive it with joy; 4 17 and they have no root in themselves, but endure for a while; then, when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately they fall away. 4 18 And others are the ones sown among thorns; they are those who hear the word, 4 19 but the cares of the world, and the delight in riches, and the desire for other things, enter in and choke the word, and it proves unfruitful. 4 20 But those that were sown upon the good soil are the ones who hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold."
