Mark 4:21-25 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

21 And he said to them, Where a lantern cometh, that it be put under a bushel, or under a bed? nay, but that it be put on a candlestick?[a]

22 [Forsooth] There is nothing hid, that shall not be made open [that shall not be showed]; neither any thing is privy, that shall not come into open [which shall not come into apert].

23 If any man have ears of hearing, hear he.

24 And he said to them, See ye what ye hear. In what measure ye mete, it shall be meted to you again [it shall be meted to you], and it shall be cast to you.

25 For it shall be given to him that hath, and it shall be taken away from him that hath not, also that that he hath. [Forsooth it shall be given to him that hath, and if man hath not, yea this that he hath shall be taken away from him.]

Mark 4:21-25 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

21 And Jesus said to the people, Is the candle lighted to be put under a bushel or under the table, and not rather to be put on a candlestick? 22 For there is nothing so hid that it will not be revealed, nor so secret but that it may become clear. 23 If any person has ears to hear, let him hear.

24 And he said to them, Attend with care to what you hear. With the same measure you give, it will be measured back to you. And to you who hear, more will be given. 25 For to him who has, it will be given, but from him who has not shall be taken away even what he has.

Mark 4:21-25 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

21 [a]Also he said unto them, Cometh the candle in, to be put under a bushel, or under the bed, and not to be put in a candlestick?

22 For there is nothing hid, that shall not be opened, neither is there a secret, but that it shall come to light.

23 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.

24 [b]And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear. With what measure you mete, it shall be measured unto you: and unto you that hear, shall more be given.

25 For unto him that hath, shall it be given, and from him that hath not, shall be taken away even that he hath.

Mark 4:21-25 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

21 And he said unto them, Is a candle brought to be put under a bushel, or under a bed? and not to be set on a candlestick? 22 For there is nothing hid, which shall not be manifested; neither was any thing kept secret, but that it should come abroad. 23 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.

24 And he said unto them, Take heed what ye hear: with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you: and unto you that hear shall more be given. 25 For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath.
