13 Revised Standard Version Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

13 1That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat beside the sea.The Parable of the Sower Mt.13.1-9 (Plain of Gennesaret) | Mk.4.1-9 | Lk.8.4-8Ἐν τῇ ἡμέρᾳ ἐκείνῃ ἐξελθὼν ὁ Ἰησοῦς τῆς οἰκίας ἐκάθητο παρὰ τὴν θάλασσαν·
2And great crowds gathered about him, so that he got into a boat and sat there; and the whole crowd stood on the beach. καὶ συνήχθησαν πρὸς αὐτὸν ὀχλοι πολλοί, ὡστε αὐτὸν εἰς πλοῖον ἐμβάντα καθῆσθαι, καὶ πᾶς ὁ ὀχλος ἐπὶ τὸν αἰγιαλὸν εἱστήκει.
3And he told them many things in parables, saying: "A sower went out to sow. καὶ ἐλάλησεν αὐτοῖς πολλὰ ἐν παραβολαῖς λέγων, Ἰδοὺ ἐξῆλθεν ὁ σπείρων τοῦ σπείρειν.
4And as he sowed, some seeds fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured them. καὶ ἐν τῷ σπείρειν αὐτὸν ἂ μὲν ἐπεσεν παρὰ τὴν ὁδόν, καὶ ἐλθόντα τὰ πετεινὰ κατέφαγεν αὐτά.
5Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they had not much soil, and immediately they sprang up, since they had no depth of soil, ἀλλα δὲ ἐπεσεν ἐπὶ τὰ πετρώδη ὁπου οὐκ εἶχεν γῆν πολλήν, καὶ εὐθέως ἐξανέτειλεν διὰ τὸ μὴ ἐχειν βάθος γῆς.
6but when the sun rose they were scorched; and since they had no root they withered away. ἡλίου δὲ ἀνατείλαντος ἐκαυματίσθη καὶ διὰ τὸ μὴ ἐχειν ῥίζαν ἐξηράνθη.
7Other seeds fell upon thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. ἀλλα δὲ ἐπεσεν ἐπὶ τὰς ἀκάνθας, καὶ ἀνέβησαν αἱ ἀκανθαι καὶ ἐπνιξαν αὐτά.
8Other seeds fell on good soil and brought forth grain, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. ἀλλα δὲ ἐπεσεν ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν τὴν καλὴν καὶ ἐδίδου καρπόν, ὃ μὲν ἑκατόν, ὃ δὲ ἑξήκοντα, ὃ δὲ τριάκοντα.
9He who has ears Other ancient authorities add here and in verse 43: to hear, let him hear." ὁ ἐχων ὦτα ἀκουέτω.
