8 New English Bible (New Testament) Passage New Testament in Greek (UBS.Ed.26)

11'This is what the parable means. The seed is the word of God.The Parable of the Sower Explained Lk.8.11-15 | Mt.13.18-23 | Mk.4.13-20Ἔστιν δὲ αὑτη ἡ παραβολή· Ὁ σπόρος ἐστὶν ὁ λόγος τοῦ θεοῦ.
12Those along the footpath are the men who hear it, and then the devil comes and carries off the word from their hearts for fear they should believe and be saved. οἱ δὲ παρὰ τὴν ὁδόν εἰσιν οἱ ἀκούσαντες, εἶτα ἐρχεται ὁ διάβολος καὶ αἰρει τὸν λόγον ἀπὸ τῆς καρδίας αὐτῶν, ἵνα μὴ πιστεύσαντες σωθῶσιν.
13The seed sown on rock stands for those who receive the word with joy when they hear it, but have no root; they are believers for a while, but in the time of testing they desert. οἱ δὲ ἐπὶ τῆς πέτρας οἳ ὁταν ἀκούσωσιν μετὰ χαρᾶς δέχονται τὸν λόγον, καὶ οὗτοι ῥίζαν οὐκ ἐχουσιν, οἳ πρὸς καιρὸν πιστεύουσιν καὶ ἐν καιρῷ πειρασμοῦ ἀφίστανται.
