What ye hear (ti akouete). Luke 8:18 has it "how ye hear" (pw akouete) . Both are important. Some things should not be heard at all for they besmirch the mind and heart. What is worth hearing should be heard rightly and heeded. With what measure (en wi metrwi). See already in the Sermon on the Mount ( Matthew 7:2 ; Luke 6:38 ).
