8 Revised Standard Version Passage

4And when a great crowd came together and people from town after town came to him, he said in a parable:The Parable of the Sower Lk.8.4-8 (Plain of Gennesaret) | Mt.13.1-9 | Mk.4.1-9
5"A sower went out to sow his seed; and as he sowed, some fell along the path, and was trodden under foot, and the birds of the air devoured it. 
6And some fell on the rock; and as it grew up, it withered away, because it had no moisture. 
7And some fell among thorns; and the thorns grew with it and choked it. 
8And some fell into good soil and grew, and yielded a hundredfold." As he said this, he called out, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear."
