4.1. The Parable of the Sower

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. 2 And he was teaching them many things in parables, and in his teaching he said to them: 3 
"Listen! Behold, a sower went out to sow. 4 
And as he sowed, some seed fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured it. 5 
Other seed fell on rocky ground, where it did not have much soil, and immediately it sprang up, since it had no depth of soil. 6 And when the sun rose, it was scorched, and since it had no root, it withered away. 7 
Other seed fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no grain. 8 
And other seeds fell into good soil and produced grain, growing up and increasing and yielding thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold."
9 And he said,
"He who has ears to hear, let him hear."
