kjv@Mark:4:1@ 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.
kjv@Mark:4:2@ And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine,
kjv@Mark:4:3@ Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:
kjv@Mark:4:4@ 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.
kjv@Mark:4:5@ And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth:
kjv@Mark:4:6@ But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.
kjv@Mark:4:7@ And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.
kjv@Mark:4:8@ 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.
kjv@Mark:4:9@ And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
kjv@Mark:4:10@ And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable.
kjv@Mark:4:11@ 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:
kjv@Mark:4:12@ 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.
kjv@Mark:4:13@ And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?
