The parable of the sower

1 And he [Note 1] 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.
2 And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine,
3 Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:
4 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.
5 And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth:
6 But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.
7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.
8 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.
9 And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
10 And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable.
11 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:
12 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.
13 And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?
14 The sower soweth the word.
15 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.
16 And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness;
17 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.
18 And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,
19 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.
20 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.
21 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?
22 For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad.
23 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.
24 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.
25 For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath.
26 And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground;
27 And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how.
28 For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.
29 But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.
30 And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with what comparison shall we compare it?
31 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:
32 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.
33 And with many such parables spake he the word unto them, as they were able to hear it.
34 But without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples.
35 And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.

The storm on the lake

36 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.
37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.
38 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?
39 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.
40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
41 And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?

1 et iterum coepit docere ad mare et congregata est ad eum turba multa ita ut in navem ascendens sederet in mari et omnis turba circa mare super terram erat
2 et docebat eos in parabolis multa et dicebat illis in doctrina sua
3 audite ecce exiit seminans ad seminandum
4 et dum seminat aliud cecidit circa viam et venerunt volucres et comederunt illud
5 aliud vero cecidit super petrosa ubi non habuit terram multam et statim exortum est quoniam non habebat altitudinem terrae
6 et quando exortus est sol exaestuavit et eo quod non haberet radicem exaruit
7 et aliud cecidit in spinas et ascenderunt spinae et offocaverunt illud et fructum non dedit
8 et aliud cecidit in terram bonam et dabat fructum ascendentem et crescentem et adferebat unum triginta et unum sexaginta et unum centum
9 et dicebat qui habet aures audiendi audiat
10 et cum esset singularis interrogaverunt eum hii qui cum eo erant cum duodecim parabolas
11 et dicebat eis vobis datum est mysterium regni Dei illis autem qui foris sunt in parabolis omnia fiunt
12 ut videntes videant et non videant et audientes audiant et non intellegant nequando convertantur et dimittantur eis peccata
13 et ait illis nescitis parabolam hanc et quomodo omnes parabolas cognoscetis
14 qui seminat verbum seminat
15 hii autem sunt qui circa viam ubi seminatur verbum et cum audierint confestim venit Satanas et aufert verbum quod seminatum est in corda eorum
16 et hii sunt similiter qui super petrosa seminantur qui cum audierint verbum statim cum gaudio accipiunt illud
17 et non habent radicem in se sed temporales sunt deinde orta tribulatione et persecutione propter verbum confestim scandalizantur
18 et alii sunt qui in spinis seminantur hii sunt qui verbum audiunt
19 et aerumnae saeculi et deceptio divitiarum et circa reliqua concupiscentiae introeuntes suffocant verbum et sine fructu efficitur
20 et hii sunt qui super terram bonam seminati sunt qui audiunt verbum et suscipiunt et fructificant unum triginta et unum sexaginta et unum centum
21 et dicebat illis numquid venit lucerna ut sub modio ponatur aut sub lecto nonne ut super candelabrum ponatur
22 non enim est aliquid absconditum quod non manifestetur nec factum est occultum sed ut in palam veniat
23 si quis habet aures audiendi audiat
24 et dicebat illis videte quid audiatis in qua mensura mensi fueritis remetietur vobis et adicietur vobis
25 qui enim habet dabitur illi et qui non habet etiam quod habet auferetur ab illo
26 et dicebat sic est regnum Dei quemadmodum si homo iaciat sementem in terram
27 et dormiat et exsurgat nocte ac die et semen germinet et increscat dum nescit ille
28 ultro enim terra fructificat primum herbam deinde spicam deinde plenum frumentum in spica
29 et cum se produxerit fructus statim mittit falcem quoniam adest messis
30 et dicebat cui adsimilabimus regnum Dei aut cui parabolae conparabimus illud
31 sicut granum sinapis quod cum seminatum fuerit in terra minus est omnibus seminibus quae sunt in terra
32 et cum seminatum fuerit ascendit et fit maius omnibus holeribus et facit ramos magnos ita ut possint sub umbra eius aves caeli habitare
33 et talibus multis parabolis loquebatur eis verbum prout poterant audire
34 sine parabola autem non loquebatur eis seorsum autem discipulis suis disserebat omnia
35 et ait illis illa die cum sero esset factum transeamus contra
36 et dimittentes turbam adsumunt eum ita ut erat in navi et aliae naves erant cum illo
37 et facta est procella magna venti et fluctus mittebat in navem ita ut impleretur navis
38 et erat ipse in puppi supra cervical dormiens et excitant eum et dicunt ei magister non ad te pertinet quia perimus
39 et exsurgens comminatus est vento et dixit mari tace obmutesce et cessavit ventus et facta est tranquillitas magna
40 et ait illis quid timidi estis necdum habetis fidem et timuerunt magno timore et dicebant ad alterutrum quis putas est iste quia et ventus et mare oboediunt ei
