Mark 4

CJB 1 Again Yeshua began to teach by the lake, but the crowd that gathered around him was so large that he got into a boat on the lake and sat there, while the crowd remained on shore at the water's edge. NIV 1 Again Jesus began to teach by the lake. The crowd that gathered around him was so large that he got into a boat and sat in it out on the lake, while all the people were along the shore at the water’s edge. CJB 2 He taught them many things in parables. In the course of his teaching, he said to them: NIV 2 He taught them many things by parables, and in his teaching said: CJB 3 "Listen! A farmer went out to sow his seed. NIV 3 “Listen! A farmer went out to sow his seed. CJB 4 As he sowed, some seed fell alongside the path; and the birds came and ate it up. NIV 4 As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. CJB 5 Other seed fell on rocky patches where there was not much soil. It sprouted quickly because the soil was shallow; NIV 5 Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. CJB 6 but when the sun rose, the young plants were scorched; and since their roots were not deep, they dried up. NIV 6 But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. CJB 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked it; so that it yielded no grain. NIV 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants, so that they did not bear grain. CJB 8 But other seed fell into rich soil and produced grain; it sprouted, and grew, and yielded a crop -- thirty, sixty, even a hundred times what was sown." NIV 8 Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up, grew and produced a crop, some multiplying thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times.” CJB 9 And he concluded, "Whoever has ears to hear with, let him hear!" NIV 9 Then Jesus said, “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.” CJB 10 When Yeshua was alone, the people around him with the Twelve asked him about the parables. NIV 10 When he was alone, the Twelve and the others around him asked him about the parables. CJB 11 He answered them, "To you the secret of the Kingdom of God has been given; but to those outside, everything is in parables, NIV 11 He told them, “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables CJB 12 so that they may be always looking but never seeing; always listening but never understanding. Otherwise, they might turn and be forgiven!" NIV 12 so that, “ ‘they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding; otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!’” CJB 13 Then Yeshua said to them, "Don't you understand this parable? How will you be able to understand any parable? NIV 13 Then Jesus said to them, “Don’t you understand this parable? How then will you understand any parable? CJB 14 The sower sows the message. NIV 14 The farmer sows the word. CJB 15 Those alongside the path where the message is sown are people who no sooner hear it than the Adversary comes and takes away the message sown in them. NIV 15 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. CJB 16 Likewise, those receiving seed on rocky patches are people who hear the message and joyfully accept it at once; but they have no root in themselves. So they hold out for a while, but as NIV 16 Others, like seed sown on rocky places, hear the word and at once receive it with joy. CJB 17 soon as some trouble or persecution arises on account of the message, they immedi ately fall away. NIV 17 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. CJB 18 Others are those sown among thorns -- they hear the message; NIV 18 Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; CJB 19 but the worries of the world, the deceitful glamor of wealth and all the other kinds of desires push in and choke the message; so that it produces nothing. NIV 19 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. CJB 20 But those sown on rich soil hear the message, accept it and bear fruit -- thirty, sixty or a hundredfold." NIV 20 Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop—some thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times what was sown.” CJB 21 He said to them, "A lamp isn't brought in to be put under a bowl or under the bed, is it? Wouldn't you put it on a lampstand? NIV 21 He said to them, “Do you bring in a lamp to put it under a bowl or a bed? Instead, don’t you put it on its stand? CJB 22 Indeed, nothing is hidden, except to be disclosed; and nothing is covered up, except to come out into the open. NIV 22 For whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed, and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought out into the open. CJB 23 Those who have ears to hear with, let them hear!" NIV 23 If anyone has ears to hear, let them hear.” CJB 24 He also said to them, "Pay attention to what you are hearing! The measure with which you measure out will be used to measure to you -- and more besides! NIV 24 “Consider carefully what you hear,” he continued. “With the measure you use, it will be measured to you—and even more. CJB 25 For anyone who has something will be given more; but from anyone who has nothing, even what he does have will be taken away." NIV 25 Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.” CJB 26 And he said, "The Kingdom of God is like a man who scatters seed on the ground. NIV 26 He also said, “This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. CJB 27 Nights he sleeps, days he's awake; and meanwhile the seeds sprout and grow -- how, he doesn't know. NIV 27 Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. CJB 28 By itself the soil produces a crop -- first the stalk, then the head, and finally the full grain in the head. NIV 28 All by itself the soil produces grain—first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head. CJB 29 But as soon as the crop is ready, the man comes with his sickle, because it's harvest-time." NIV 29 As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.” CJB 30 Yeshua also said, "With what can we compare the Kingdom of God? What illustration should we use to describe it? NIV 30 Again he said, “What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? CJB 31 It is like a mustard seed, which, when planted, is the smallest of all the seeds in the field; NIV 31 It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. CJB 32 but after it has been planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all the plants, with such big branches that the birds flying about can build nests in its shade." NIV 32 Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.” CJB 33 With many parables like these he spoke the message to them, to the extent that they were capable of hearing it. NIV 33 With many similar parables Jesus spoke the word to them, as much as they could understand. CJB 34 He did not say a thing to them without using a parable; when he was alone with his own talmidim he explained everything to them. NIV 34 He did not say anything to them without using a parable. But when he was alone with his own disciples, he explained everything. CJB 35 That day, when evening had come, Yeshua said to them, "Let's cross to the other side of the lake." NIV 35 That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side.” CJB 36 So, leaving the crowd behind, they took him just as he was, in the boat; and there were other boats with him. NIV 36 Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. CJB 37 A furious windstorm arose, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was close to being swamped. NIV 37 A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. CJB 38 But he was in the stern on a cushion, asleep. They woke him and said to him, "Rabbi, doesn't it matter to you that we're about to be killed?" NIV 38 Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?” CJB 39 He awoke, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, "Quiet! Be still!" The wind subsided, and there was a dead calm. NIV 39 He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm. CJB 40 He said to them, "Why are you afraid? Have you no trust even now?" NIV 40 He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” CJB 41 But they were terrified and asked each other, "Who can this be, that even the wind and the waves obey him?" NIV 41 They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”
