The Parable of the Sower by Jesus - Matthew 13

The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat  by the sea side. Matthew 13:1  KJV

Matthew 13:2 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. 

Matthew 13:3 And he  spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a  sower went forth to sow; 

Matthew 13:4 And when he sowed, some  seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and  devoured them up: 

Matthew 13:5 Some fell upon stony places,  where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung  up, because they had no deepness of earth: 

Matthew 13:6 And  when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. 

Matthew 13:7 And some fell  among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:   

Matthew 13:8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth  fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.  

Matthew 13:9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. 

Matthew 13:10 And the  disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto  them in parables? 

Matthew 13:11 He answered and said unto them,  Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the  kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. 

Matthew 13:12 For  whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have  more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be  taken away even that he hath. 

Matthew 13:13 Therefore speak I to  them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing  they hear not, neither do they understand. 

Matthew 13:14 And in  them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By  hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing  ye shall see, and shall not perceive: 

Matthew 13:15 For this  people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of  hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time  they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears,  and should understand with their heart, and should be  converted, and I should heal them. 

Matthew 13:16 But blessed  are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.  

Matthew 13:17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and  righteous men have desired to see those things which ye  see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things  which ye hear, and have not heard them.  

Matthew 13:18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.   

Matthew 13:19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom,  and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one,  and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is  he which received seed by the way side. 

Matthew 13:20 But he that  received the seed into stony places, the same is he that  heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; 

Matthew 13:21  Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for  when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word,  by and by he is offended. 

Matthew 13:22 He also that received  seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the  care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the  word, and he becometh unfruitful. 

Matthew 13:23 But he that  received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the  word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and  bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some  thirty.  

Matthew 13:24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying,  The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed  good seed in his field: 

Matthew 13:25 But while men slept, his  enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went  his way. 

Matthew 13:26 But when the blade was sprung up, and  brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 

Matthew 13:27 So  the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir,  didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then  hath it tares? 

Matthew 13:28 He said unto them, An enemy hath  done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that  we go and gather them up? 

Matthew 13:29 But he said, Nay; lest  while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with  them. 

Matthew 13:30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and  in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye  together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn  them: but gather the wheat into my barn.  

Matthew 13:31 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying,  The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed,  which a man took, and sowed in his field: 

Matthew 13:32 Which  indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the  greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds  of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.  

Matthew 13:33 Another parable spake he unto them; The  kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman  took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was  leavened. 

Matthew 13:34 All these things spake Jesus unto the  multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not  unto them: 

Matthew 13:35 That it might be fulfilled which was  spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in  parables; I will utter things which have been kept secret  from the foundation of the world. 

Matthew 13:36 Then Jesus sent  the multitude away, and went into the house: and his  disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the  parable of the tares of the field. 

Matthew 13:37 He answered and  said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of  man; 

Matthew 13:38 The field is the world; the good seed are the  children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the  wicked one; 

Matthew 13:39 The enemy that sowed them is the  devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are  the angels. 

Matthew 13:40 As therefore the tares are gathered and  burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.  

Matthew 13:41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and  they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend,  and them which do iniquity; 

Matthew 13:42 And shall cast them  into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of  teeth. 

Matthew 13:43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the  sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear,  let him hear.  

Matthew 13:44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto  treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he  hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath,  and buyeth that field.  

Matthew 13:45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a  merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: 

Matthew 13:46 Who, when  he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that  he had, and bought it.  

Matthew 13:47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net,  that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:  

Matthew 13:48 Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and  sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the  bad away. 

Matthew 13:49 So shall it be at the end of the world: the  angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among  the just, 

Matthew 13:50 And shall cast them into the furnace of  fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 

Matthew 13:51  Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things?  They say unto him, Yea, Lord. 

Matthew 13:52 Then said he unto  them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the  kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an  householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure  things new and old.  

Matthew 13:53 And it came to pass, that when Jesus had  finished these parables, he departed thence. 

Matthew 13:54 And  when he was come into his own country, he taught them in  their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and  said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these  mighty works? 

Matthew 13:55 Is not this the carpenter’s son? is  not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and  Joses, and Simon, and Judas? 

Matthew 13:56 And his sisters, are  they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these  things? 

Matthew 13:57 And they were offended in him. But Jesus  said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his  own country, and in his own house. 

Matthew 13:58 And he did not  many mighty works there because of their unbelief.
