Matthew 13:4

As he sowed (en twi speirein auton). Literally, "in the sowing as to him," a neat Greek idiom unlike our English temporal conjunction. Locative case with the articular present infinitive. By the wayside (para thn odon). People will make paths along the edge of a ploughed field or even across it where the seed lies upon the beaten track. Devoured (katepagen). "Ate down." We say, "ate up." Second aorist active indicative of katesqiw (defective verb).
