041:004:001
And he began again to teach by the sea side:
and there was gathered unto him a great multitude,
so that he entered into a ship,
and sat in the sea;
and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land.


041:004:002
And he taught them many things by parables,
and said unto them in his doctrine,


041:004:003
Hearken;
Behold,
there went out a sower to sow:


041:004:004
And it came to pass,
as he sowed,
some fell by the way side,
and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.


041:004:005
And some fell on stony ground,
where it had not much earth;
and immediately it sprang up,
because it had no depth of earth:


041:004:006
But when the sun was up,
it was scorched;
and because it had no root,
it withered away.


041:004:007
And some fell among thorns,
and the thorns grew up,
and choked it,
and it yielded no fruit.


041:004:008
And other fell on good ground,
and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased;
and brought forth,
some thirty,
and some sixty,
and some an hundred.


041:004:009
And he said unto them,
He that hath ears to hear,
let him hear.


041:004:010
And when he was alone,
they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable.


041:004:011
And he said unto them,
Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God:
but unto them that are without,
all these things are done in parables:


041:004:012
That seeing they may see,
and not perceive;
and hearing they may hear,
and not understand;
lest at any time they should be converted,
and their sins should be forgiven them.


041:004:013
And he said unto them,
Know ye not this parable?
and how then will ye know all parables?


041:004:014
The sower soweth the word.


041:004:015
And these are they by the way side,
where the word is sown;
but when they have heard,
Satan cometh immediately,
and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.


041:004:016
And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground;
who,
when they have heard the word,
immediately receive it with gladness;


041:004:017
And have no root in themselves,
and so endure but for a time:
afterward,
when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word's sake,
immediately they are offended.


041:004:018
And these are they which are sown among thorns;
such as hear the word,


041:004:019
And the cares of this world,
and the deceitfulness of riches,
and the lusts of other things entering in,
choke the word,
and it becometh unfruitful.


041:004:020
And these are they which are sown on good ground;
such as hear the word,
and receive it,
and bring forth fruit,
some thirtyfold,
some sixty,
and some an hundred.


041:004:021
And he said unto them,
Is a candle brought to be put under a bushel,
or under a bed?
and not to be set on a candlestick?


041:004:022
For there is nothing hid,
which shall not be manifested;
neither was any thing kept secret,
but that it should come abroad.


041:004:023
If any man have ears to hear,
let him hear.


041:004:024
And he said unto them,
Take heed what ye hear:
with what measure ye mete,
it shall be measured to you:
and unto you that hear shall more be given.


041:004:025
For he that hath,
to him shall be given:
and he that hath not,
from him shall be taken even that which he hath.


041:004:026
And he said,
So is the kingdom of God,
as if a man should cast seed into the ground;


041:004:027
And should sleep,
and rise night and day,
and the seed should spring and grow up,
he knoweth not how.


041:004:028
For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself;
first the blade,
then the ear,
after that the full corn in the ear.


041:004:029
But when the fruit is brought forth,
immediately he putteth in the sickle,
because the harvest is come.


041:004:030
And he said,
Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God?
or with what comparison shall we compare it?


041:004:031
It is like a grain of mustard seed,
which,
when it is sown in the earth,
is less than all the seeds that be in the earth:


041:004:032
But when it is sown,
it groweth up,
and becometh greater than all herbs,
and shooteth out great branches;
so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.


041:004:033
And with many such parables spake he the word unto them,
as they were able to hear it.


041:004:034
But without a parable spake he not unto them:
and when they were alone,
he expounded all things to his disciples.


041:004:035
And the same day,
when the even was come,
he saith unto them,
Let us pass over unto the other side.


041:004:036
And when they had sent away the multitude,
they took him even as he was in the ship.
And there were also with him other little ships.


041:004:037
And there arose a great storm of wind,
and the waves beat into the ship,
so that it was now full.


041:004:038
And he was in the hinder part of the ship,
asleep on a pillow:
and they awake him,
and say unto him,
Master,
carest thou not that we perish?


041:004:039
And he arose,
and rebuked the wind,
and said unto the sea,
Peace,
be still.
And the wind ceased,
and there was a great calm.


041:004:040
And he said unto them,
Why are ye so fearful?
how is it that ye have no faith?


041:004:041
And they feared exceedingly,
and said one to another,
What manner of man is this,
that even the wind and the sea obey him?
