Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they did not have much soil, and immediately they sprang up, since they had no depth of soil, but (C)when the sun rose they were scorched. And since they had no root, (D)they withered away. Other seeds fell among (E)thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. Other seeds fell on good soil and produced grain, some (F)a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. (G)He who has ears,[a] let him hear.”
