The Parable of the Sower Explained

18 “You, then, listen to the parable of the sower: b 19 When anyone hears the word c about the kingdom and doesn’t understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is the one sown along the path. d 20 And the one sown on rocky ground—this is one who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy. e 21 Yet he has no root in himself, but is short-lived. When pressure or persecution f comes because of the word, immediately he stumbles. 22 Now the one sown among the thorns—this is one who hears the word, but the worries of this age g and the seduction h of wealth i choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful. 23 But the one sown on the good ground—this is one who hears and understands the word, who does bear fruit and yields: some 100, some 60, some 30 times what was sown.”
