  • A sower went out to sow his seed.

  • And as he scattered the grain some of it fell by the path

  • and was trodden on,

  • And the birds of the air devoured it.

  • And some fell on rocky ground,

  • and when the plants sprouted,

  • they withered away because they had no moisture.

  • And some seeds fell among thorns.

  • And the thorns grew up with the plants, and choked them.

  • And some seeds fell in good soil,

  • And the plants grew and bore grain, 100 grains each.

  • Master, why do You speak in parables whenever a crowd is near?

  • The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God have been given to you.

  • But to others it comes by means of parables...

  • So they may look but not see...

  • And listen but not understand.

  • This is what the parable means.

  • The seed is the word of God.

  • The seeds that fell along the path stand for those who hear.

  • But the devil comes and takes the message away from their hearts

  • in order to keep them from believing and being saved.

  • The seeds that fell on rocky ground

  • stand for those who hear the message and receive it gladly.

  • But they have no roots.

  • They believe only for a while.

  • And when the time of testing comes, they fall away.

  • The seeds that fell among the thorns stand for those who hear,

  • but the worries and riches and pleasures of this life

  • crowd in and choke them.

  • And their fruit never ripens.

  • And the seeds that fell in good soil,

  • Stand for those who hear the message

  • and retain it in a good and obedient heart.

  • And they persist until they bear fruit.

A sower went out to sow his seed.
