Mark 4

CSB 1 Again He began to teach by the sea, and a very large crowd gathered around Him. So He got into a boat on the sea and sat down, while the whole crowd was on the shore facing the sea. 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. CSB 2 He taught them many things in parables, and in His teaching He said to them: NIV 2 He taught them many things by parables, and in his teaching said: CSB 3 "Listen! Consider the sower who went out to sow. NIV 3 “Listen! A farmer went out to sow his seed. CSB 4 As he sowed, this occurred: Some seed fell along 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. CSB 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. NIV 5 Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. CSB 6 When the sun came up, it was scorched, and since it didn't have a root, it withered. NIV 6 But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. CSB 7 Other seed fell among thorns, and the thorns came up and choked it, and it didn't produce a crop. NIV 7 Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants, so that they did not bear grain. CSB 8 Still others fell on good ground and produced a crop that increased 30, 60, and 100 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.” CSB 9 Then He said, "Anyone who has ears to hear should listen!" NIV 9 Then Jesus said, “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.” CSB 10 When He was alone with the Twelve, those who were around Him asked Him about the parables. NIV 10 When he was alone, the Twelve and the others around him asked him about the parables. CSB 11 He answered them, "The secret does not mean "mystery" in the Eng sense; it means what we can know only by divine revelation. of the kingdom of God has been granted to you, but to those outside, everything comes 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 CSB 12 so that they may look and look, yet not perceive; they may listen and listen, yet not understand; otherwise, they might turn back- 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!’” CSB 13 Then He said to them: "Do you not understand this parable? How then will you understand any of the parables? NIV 13 Then Jesus said to them, “Don’t you understand this parable? How then will you understand any parable? CSB 14 The sower sows the word. NIV 14 The farmer sows the word. CSB 15 These are the ones along the path where the word is sown: when they hear, immediately Satan comes and takes away the word 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. CSB 16 And these are the ones sown on rocky ground: when they hear the word, immediately they receive it with joy. NIV 16 Others, like seed sown on rocky places, hear the word and at once receive it with joy. CSB 17 But they have no root in themselves; they are short-lived. When affliction or persecution comes because of the word, they immediately stumble. 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. CSB 18 Others are sown among thorns; these are the ones who hear the word, NIV 18 Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; CSB 19 but the worries of this age, the seduction of wealth, and the desires for other things enter in and choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful. 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. CSB 20 But the ones sown on good ground are those who hear the word, welcome it, and produce a crop: 30, 60, and 100 times [what was sown]." 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.” CSB 21 He also said to them, "Is a lamp brought in to be put under a basket or under a bed? Isn't it to be put 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? CSB 22 For nothing is concealed except to be revealed, and nothing hidden except to come to light. NIV 22 For whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed, and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought out into the open. CSB 23 If anyone has ears to hear, he should listen!" NIV 23 If anyone has ears to hear, let them hear.” CSB 24 Then He said to them, "Pay attention to what you hear. By the measure you use, it will be measured and added to you. NIV 24 “Consider carefully what you hear,” he continued. “With the measure you use, it will be measured to you—and even more. CSB 25 For to the one who has, it will be given, and from the one who does not have, even what he has 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.” CSB 26 "The kingdom of God is like this," He said. "A man 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. CSB 27 he sleeps and rises-night and day, and the seed sprouts and grows-he doesn't know how. NIV 27 Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. CSB 28 The soil produces a crop by itself-first the blade, then the head, and then the ripe grain on the head. NIV 28 All by itself the soil produces grain—first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head. CSB 29 But as soon as the crop is ready, he sends for the sickle, because harvest has come." NIV 29 As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.” CSB 30 And He said: "How can we illustrate the kingdom of God, or what parable can 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? CSB 31 It's like a mustard seed that, when sown in the soil, is smaller than all the seeds on the ground. NIV 31 It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. CSB 32 And when sown, it comes up and grows taller than all the vegetables, and produces large branches, so that the birds of the sky can nest 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.” CSB 33 He would speak the word to them with many parables like these, as they were able to understand. NIV 33 With many similar parables Jesus spoke the word to them, as much as they could understand. CSB 34 And He did not speak to them without a parable. Privately, however, He would explain everything to His own disciples. 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. CSB 35 On that day, when evening had come, He told them, "Let's cross over 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.” CSB 36 So they left the crowd and took Him along since He was [already] in the boat. And other boats were 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. CSB 37 A fierce windstorm arose, and the waves were breaking over the boat, so that the boat was already being swamped. NIV 37 A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. CSB 38 But He was in the stern, sleeping on the cushion. So they woke Him up and said to Him, "Teacher! Don't you care that we're going to die?" 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?” CSB 39 He got up, rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Silence! Be still!" The wind ceased, and there was a great 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. CSB 40 Then He said to them, "Why are you fearful? Do you still have no faith?" NIV 40 He said to his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” CSB 41 And they were terrified and asked one another, "Who then is this? Even the wind and the sea obey Him!" NIV 41 They were terrified and asked each other, “Who is this? Even the wind and the waves obey him!”
