Matthew 13:3-9

ACV(i) 3 And he spoke many things to them in parables, saying, Behold, the man who sows went forth to sow. 4 And as he sowed, some fell by the wayside, and the birds came and devoured them. 5 But others fell upon the rocky places, where they had not much soil, and straightaway they sprang up because they had no depth of soil. 6 But when the sun was risen, they were scorched, and because they had no root they withered. 7 And others fell in the thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. 8 But others fell upon the good ground, and yielded fruit, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. 9 He who has ears, let him hear.
