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

4 1Again he began to teach beside the sea. And a very large crowd gathered about him, so that he got into a boat and sat in it on the sea; and the whole crowd was beside the sea on the land.The Parable of the Sower Mk.4.1-9 (Plain of Gennesaret) | Mt.13.1-9 | Lk.8.4-8Καὶ πάλιν ἠρξατο διδάσκειν παρὰ τὴν θάλασσαν. καὶ συνάγεται πρὸς αὐτὸν ὀχλος πλεῖστος, ὡστε αὐτὸν εἰς πλοῖον ἐμβάντα καθῆσθαι ἐν τῇ θαλάσσῃ, καὶ πᾶς ὁ ὀχλος πρὸς τὴν θάλασσαν ἐπὶ τῆς γῆς ἦσαν.
2And he taught them many things in parables, and in his teaching he said to them: καὶ ἐδίδασκεν αὐτοὺς ἐν παραβολαῖς πολλά, καὶ ἐλεγεν αὐτοῖς ἐν τῇ διδαχῇ αὐτοῦ,
3"Listen! A sower went out to sow. Ἀκούετε. ἰδοὺ ἐξῆλθεν ὁ σπείρων σπεῖραι.
4And as he sowed, some seed fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured it. καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ σπείρειν ὃ μὲν ἐπεσεν παρὰ τὴν ὁδόν, καὶ ἦλθεν τὰ πετεινὰ καὶ κατέφαγεν αὐτό.
5Other seed fell on rocky ground, where it had not much soil, and immediately it sprang up, since it had no depth of soil; καὶ ἀλλο ἐπεσεν ἐπὶ τὸ πετρῶδες ὁπου οὐκ εἶχεν γῆν πολλήν, καὶ εὐθὺς ἐξανέτειλεν διὰ τὸ μὴ ἐχειν βάθος γῆς·
6and when the sun rose it was scorched, and since it had no root it withered away. καὶ ὅτε ἀνέτειλεν ὁ ἡλιος ἐκαυματίσθη, καὶ διὰ τὸ μὴ ἐχειν ῥίζαν ἐξηράνθη.
7Other seed fell among thorns and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no grain. καὶ ἀλλο ἐπεσεν εἰς τὰς ἀκάνθας, καὶ ἀνέβησαν αἱ ἀκανθαι καὶ συνέπνιξαν αὐτό, καὶ καρπὸν οὐκ ἐδωκεν.
8And other seeds fell into good soil and brought forth grain, growing up and increasing and yielding thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold." καὶ ἀλλα ἐπεσεν εἰς τὴν γῆν τὴν καλήν, καὶ ἐδίδου καρπὸν ἀναβαίνοντα καὶ αὐξανόμενα, καὶ ἐφερεν ἓν τριάκοντα καὶ ἓν ἑξήκοντα καὶ ἓν ἑκατόν.
9And he said, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear." καὶ ἐλεγεν, Ὃς ἐχει ὦτα ἀκούειν ἀκουέτω.
