Mark 4:4

4 As he sowed, this occurred: Some seed fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up.

Mark 4:4 In-Context

2 He taught them many things in parables, and in His teaching He said to them:
3 "Listen! Consider the sower who went out to sow.
4 As he sowed, this occurred: Some seed fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up.
5 Other seed fell on rocky ground where it didn't have much soil, and it sprang up right away, since it didn't have deep soil.
6 When the sun came up, it was scorched, and since it didn't have a root, it withered.
