Young's Literal Translation
Instead he went out and began to talk freely, spreading the news. As a result, Jesus could no longer enter a town openly but stayed outside in lonely places. Yet the people still came to him from everywhere.
So many gathered that there was no room left, not even outside the door, and he preached the word to them.
Some people are like seed along the path, where the word is sown. As soon as they hear it, Satan comes and takes away the word that was sown in them.
Others, like seed sown on rocky places, hear the word and at once receive it with joy.
But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away.
but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful.
Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop--thirty, sixty or even a hundred times what was sown."
With many similar parables Jesus spoke the word to them, as much as they could understand.
Ignoring what they said, Jesus told the synagogue ruler, "Don't be afraid; just believe."
Thus you nullify the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down. And you do many things like that."
Then he told her, "For such a reply, you may go; the demon has left your daughter."
He spoke plainly about this, and Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him.
If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his Father's glory with the holy angels."
They kept the matter to themselves, discussing what "rising from the dead" meant.
At this the man's face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth.
The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, "Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.
Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.
