28 All by itself the soil produces grain—first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head.

Read Mark 4:28 Using Other Translations

For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.
The earth produces by itself, first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear.
The earth produces the crops on its own. First a leaf blade pushes through, then the heads of wheat are formed, and finally the grain ripens.
