|Matthew 13:3-9||Mark 4:3-9||Luke 8:5-8|
3And He spoke many things to them in parables, saying,
Behold, the sower went out to sow.
4And as he sowed, some seeds fell by the wayside, and the
birds came and devoured them.
5Some fell on stony places, where they did not have much
earth. And they sprang up immediately, because they had no deepness of earth.
6And the sun rising, they were scorched, and because they
had no root, they withered away.
7And some fell among thorns. And the thorns sprung up and
8And some fell on the good ground and yielded fruit,
indeed one a hundredfold, and one sixty, and one thirty.
9He who has ears to hear, let him hear.
2And He taught them many things by a
parable. And He said to them in His teaching:
3Listen! Behold, a sower went out to sow.
4And as he sowed, it happened that indeed some fell by the
wayside, and the fowls of the air came and ate it up.
5And another fell on stony ground, where it did not have
much earth. And it sprang up at once, due to not having deepness of earth.
6And when the sun rose, it was scorched. And because it
had no root, it withered away.
7And another fell among the thorns, and the thorns grew
up and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.
8And another fell on good ground and yielded fruit, going
up and increasing. And one bore thirty, and one sixty, and one a hundredfold.
9And He said to them, He who has ears to hear, let him
5A sower went out to sow his seed. And
as he sowed, the one fell by the roadside and was trampled; and the birds of the air
6And other fell on a rock, and sprouting, it withered away,
because it lacked moisture.
7And other fell amidst thorns, and springing up with the
thorns, they choked it.
8And other fell on good ground and sprang up, and bore
fruit a hundredfold. And when He had said these things, He cried, He who has ears
to hear, let him hear.
In all three Gospels, Matthew, Mark and Luke
Jesus explains the parable.
