8:4 Forsooth when full much company came together, and from cities hasted to him, he said by a likeness, When much people were gathered together, and were come to him out of the cities, he spake by a similitude: Now when much people were gathered together, and were come to him out of all cities, he spake by a parable, And when much people were gathered together, and were come to him out of every city, he spake by a parable:
8:5 He that soweth, went out to sow his seed. And while he soweth, some fell beside the way, and was defouled, and birds of the air ate it. A sower went out to sow his seed, and as he sowed, some fell by the wayside, and it was trodden under feet, and the fowls of the air devoured it up. A sower went out to sow his seed, and as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and it was trodden under feet, and the fowls of heaven devoured it up. A Sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way’s side, and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it.
8:6 And other fell on a stone, and it sprang up, and dried, for it had no moisture. And some fell on stone, and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moistness. And some fell on the stones, and when it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moistness. And some fell upon a rock, and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture.
8:7 And other fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up together, and strangled it. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprung up with it, and choked it. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it.
8:8 And another fell down into good land, and it sprang up, and made an hundredfold fruit. He said these things, and cried, He that hath ears of hearing, hear he. And some fell on good ground, and sprung up and bare fruit, an hundred fold. And as he said these things, he cried: He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. And some fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit, an hundred fold. And as he said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundred fold. And when he said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
8:9 But his disciples asked him, what this parable was. His disciples asked him, saying: what manner similitude this should be. Then his disciples asked him, demanding, what parable that was? And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be?
8:10 And he said to them, To you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God; but to other men in parables, that they seeing see not, and they hearing understand not. And he said: unto you is it given to know the secrets of the kingdom of god: but to other in similitudes, that when they see, they should not see: and when they hear they should not understand. And he said, Unto you it is given to know the secrets of the kingdom of God, but to other in parables, that when they see, they should not see, and when they hear, they should not understand. And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables, that seeing, they might not see, and hearing, they might not understand.
8:11 And this is the parable. The seed is God’s word; The similitude is this. The seed is the word of God. The parable is this, The seed is the word of God. Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
8:12 soothly those that be beside the way, be these that hear; afterward the fiend cometh, and taketh away the word of their heart, lest they believing be made safe. Those that are beside the way, are they that hear, and afterward cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. And they that are beside the way, are they that hear: afterward cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe, and be saved? Those by the way side, are they that hear: then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe, & be saved.
8:13 But they that fell on a stone, be these men which when they have heard, receive the word with joy. And these have not root; for at a time they believe, and in time of temptation they go away. They on the stones, are they which when they hear the word receive it with joy. And these have no roots, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation go away. But they that are on the stones, are they which when they have heard, receive the word with joy: but they have no roots, which for a while believe, but in the time of temptation go away. They on the rock, are they which when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.
8:14 But that that fell among thorns, be these that heard, and of busynesses, and riches, and volupties of life they go forth, and be strangled, and bring forth no fruit. That which fell among thorns, are they which hear, and go forth, and are choked with care and riches, and voluptuous living, and bring forth no fruit. And that which fell among thorns, are they which have heard, and after their departure are choked with cares and with riches, and voluptuous living, and bring forth no fruit. And that which fell among thorns, are they, which when they have heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and riches, and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection.
8:15 Forsooth that that fell into good earth, be these which, in good heart and best, hearing the word hold, and bring forth fruit in patience. That in the good ground, are they which with a good and pure heart, hear the word, and keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience. But that which fell in good ground, are they which with an honest & good heart hear the word, and keep it, & bring forth fruit with patience. But that on the good ground, are they, which in an honest and good heart having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.
8:16 Forsooth no man lighting a lantern, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed, but on a candlestick, that men that enter see light. No man lighteth a candle, and covereth it under a vessel, neither putteth it under the table: but setteth it on a candlestick, that they that enter in, may see light. No man when he lighteth a candle, coverth it under a vessel, neither putteth it under the table, but setteth it on a candlestick, that they that enter in, may see the light. No man when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed: but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in, may see the light.
8:17 Forsooth nothing is privy, that shall not be opened, neither hid thing, that shall not be known, and come into apert. No thing is in secret, that shall not come abroad: Neither any thing hid, that shall not be known, and come to light. For nothing is secret, that shall not be evident: neither any thing hid, that shall not be known, and come to light. For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest: neither any thing hid, that shall not be known, and come abroad.
8:18 Therefore see ye, how ye hear; for it shall be given to him that hath, and whoever hath not, also that that he guesseth himself to have, shall be taken away from him. Take heed therefore how ye hear. For whosoever hath, to him shall be given: And whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken, even that same which he supposeth that he hath. Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given: and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that, which it seemeth that he hath. Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken, even that which he seemeth to have.
