Matthew 13:1-9 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

13 In that day Jesus went out of the house, and sat beside the sea.

And much people was gathered to him, so that he went up into a boat, and sat; and all the people stood on the brink. [And many companies were gathered to him, so that he ascending into a boat sat; and all the company stood in the brink.]

And he spake to them many things in parables, and said [saying], Lo! he that soweth, went out to sow his seed.

And while he soweth, some seeds felled [fell] beside the way, and birds of the air came, and ate them.

But other seeds [Soothly other] felled into stony places, where they had not much earth; and at once [and anon] they sprung up, for they had not deepness of earth.

But when the sun was risen, they parched [they sweltered, or burned for heat], and for they had not root, they dried up.

And other seeds [Forsooth other] felled among thorns; and the thorns waxed up, and strangled them.

But other seeds [But other] felled into good land, and gave fruit; some an hundredfold, another sixtyfold, [and] another thirtyfold.

He that hath ears of hearing, hear he.

Matthew 13:1-9 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

The parables of the seed, of the tares, of the mustard seed, of the leaven, of the treasure hid in the field, of the pearls, and of the net.

13 The same day, Jesus went out of the house and sat by the sea side. And crowds of people gathered to him, so greatly that he went and sat in a boat, and all the people stood on the shore. And he spoke many things to them in similitudes, saying, Behold, the sower went forth to sow. And as he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside, and the birds came and devoured it up. Some fell on stony ground where it had not much earth, and it sprang up quickly, because it had no depth of earth; and when the sun was up, it caught heat, and for lack of rooting withered away. Some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up and choked it. But part fell in good ground, and brought forth good fruit: some a hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. Whosoever has ears to hear, let him hear!

13 1 The parable of the Sower. 11 and 34 Why Jesus spake in parables. 18 The exposition of the parable. 24 The parable of the tares. 31 Of the mustard seed. 33 Of the leaven. 44 Of the hidden treasure. 45 Of the pearl. 47 Of the draw net cast into the sea. 53 Christ is not received of his countrymen the Nazarites.

The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.

[a]And great multitudes resorted unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat down: and the whole multitude stood on the shore.

Then he spake many things to them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow.

And as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up.

And some fell upon stony ground, where they had not much earth, and anon they sprung up, because they had no depth of earth.

And when the sun was up, they were parched, and for lack of rooting withered away.

And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprung up, and choked them.

And some again fell in good ground, and brought forth fruit, one corn an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, and another thirtyfold.

He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

  1. Matthew 13:2 Christ showeth in putting forth this parable of the Sower, that the seed of life which is sown in the world, cometh not on so well in one as in another, and the reason is, for that men for the most part either do not receive it, or suffer it not to ripen.

Matthew 13:1-9 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

13 The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side. And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore. And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; and when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: and when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: but other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
