      3 He used parables to tell them many things. "Once there was a man who went out to sow grain.
      4 As he scattered the seed in the field, some of it fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up.
      5 Some of it fell on rocky ground, where there was little soil. The seeds soon sprouted, because the soil wasn't deep.
      6 But when the sun came up, it burned the young plants; and because the roots had not grown deep enough, the plants soon dried up.
      7 Some of the seed fell among thorn bushes, which grew up and choked the plants.
      8 But some seeds fell in good soil, and the plants bore grain: some had one hundred grains, others sixty, and others thirty."
