Original text and translations
8:4 Cum turba plurima conveniret ad Iesum et de civitatibus properarent ad eum
dixit per similitudinem:
8:5 exiit qui seminat seminare semen suum: et dum seminat aliud cecidit secus viam et conculcatum est et volucres caeli comederunt illud.
8:6 et aliud cecidit supra petram et natum aruit, quia non habebat
8:7 et aliud cecidit inter spinas: et simul exortae spinae suffocaverunt illud.
8:8 et aliud cecidit in terram bonam, et ortum fecit fructum centuplum.
Haec dicens clamabat: qui habet aures audiendi audiat.
8:4 And when much people were gathered together to Jesus, and were come to him out of every city,
he spake by a parable:
8:5 A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the wayside; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it.
8:6 And some fell upon a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture.
8:7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it.
8:8 And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold.
And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
