On that day Jesus went out of the house, and sat by the seaside.
Great multitudes gathered to him, so that he entered into a boat, and sat, and all the multitude stood on the beach.
He spoke to them many things in parables, saying, "Behold, the farmer went forth to sow.
As he sowed, some seeds fell by the roadside, and the birds came and devoured them.
Others fell on rocky ground, where they didn't have much soil, and immediately they sprang up, because they had no deepness of earth.
When the sun had risen, they were scorched. Because they had no root, they withered away.
Others fell on thorns. The thorns grew up and choked them:
and others fell on good soil, and yielded fruit: some one hundred times, some sixty, and some thirty.
He who has ears to hear, let him hear."
