Matthew 13:1-9 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
13 The same day, Jesus went out of the house and sat by the seaside.
2 And great multitudes were gathered together unto Him, so that He went into a boat and sat, and the whole multitude stood on the shore.
3 And He spoke many things unto them in parables, saying, “Behold, a sower went forth to sow.
4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the wayside; and the fowls came and devoured them up.
5 Some fell upon stony places where they had not much earth; and forthwith they sprang up, because they had no deepness of earth.
6 And when the sun was up they were scorched, and because they had no root they withered away.
7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up and choked them.
8 But others fell into good ground and brought forth fruit, some a hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.”
Matthew 13:18-23 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
18 “Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower:
19 When any one heareth the Word of the Kingdom and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he that received seed by the wayside.
20 But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the Word and at once with joy receiveth it;
21 yet hath he not root in himself, but endureth for a while. For when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the Word, by and by he loses faith.
22 He also that received the seed among the thorns is he that heareth the Word; and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the Word, and he becometh unfruitful.
23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the Word and understandeth it; who also beareth fruit and bringeth forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.”
