4 Revised Standard Version Passage

13And he said to them, "Do you not understand this parable? How then will you understand all the parables?The Parable of the Sower Explained Mk.4.13-20 | Mt.13.18-23 | Lk.8.11-13
14The sower sows the word. 
15And these are the ones along the path, where the word is sown; when they hear, Satan immediately comes and takes away the word which is sown in them. 
16And these in like manner are the ones sown upon rocky ground, who, when they hear the word, immediately receive it with joy; 
17and they have no root in themselves, but endure for a while; then, when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately they fall away. Or: stumble 
18And others are the ones sown among thorns; they are those who hear the word, 
19but the cares of the world, and the delight in riches, and the desire for other things, enter in and choke the word, and it proves unfruitful. 
20But those that were sown upon the good soil are the ones who hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold."
