Mark 4

1And again he began to teach by the sea; and was assembled to him a crowd great, so as him entering into the ship, to sit in the sea; and all the crowd by the sea on the land was. 2And he taught them in parables many, and said to them in the teaching of him: 3Hear you: Lo, went out the sower of the (seed) to sow. 4And it happened in the sowing, this indeed fell on the path; and came the birds, and ate it. 5Another and fell on the rocky ground, where not it had earth much; and immediately it sprung up, through the not to have a depth of earth. 6Sun and having arisen, it was scorched, and through the not to have a root, was dried up. 7And another fell into thorns; and sprung up the thorns, and chocked it, and fruit not it gave. 8And another fell into the ground the good; and it bore fruit springing up and increasing; and bore one thirty, and one sixty, and one a hundred. 9And he said: He having ear to hear, let him hear. 10When and he was alone, asked him those about him, with the twelve, the parables. 11And he said to them: To you it is given to know the secret of the kingdom of the God; to them but to those without in parables the all (things) are done; 12that seeing they may see, and not they may see; and hearing they may hear, and not they may hear; lest they should turn, and should be forgiven to them the sins. 13And he says to them: Nat know you the parable this? and how all the parables will you know? 14He sowing, the word sows. 15These and are they by the path, where is sown the word, and when they may hear, immediately comes the adversary, and takes the word that having been sown in the hearts of them. 16And these are like those on the rocky ground being sown, who, when they may hear the word, immediately with joy they receive it; 17and not they have a root in themselves, but for a reason they are; then occurring trial or persecution through the word, immediately they are offended. 18And others are those into the thorns, being sown; these are those the word hearing, 19and the cares of the age, and the delusion of the wealth, and the about the other (things) strong desires entering in choke the word; and unfruitful it becomes. 20And these are those upon the ground the good being sown, who hear the word, and accept; and bear fruit, one thirty, and one sixty, and one a hundred. 21And he said to them: Neither the lamp comes, that under the measure it may be placed, or under the couch? not that on the lamp-stand it may be placed? 22Not for is any thing hidden, which if not it may be disclosed; nor was stored away, but that into light it may come. 23If any one has ears to hear, let him hear. 24And he said to them: Consider you, what you hear. In what measure you measure, it shall be measured to you. 25Who for ever may have, it shall be given to him; and who not has, even what he has will be taken from him. 26And he said: Thus is the kingdom of the God, as if a man should cast the seed on the earth, 27and should sleep and wake night and day, and the seed should germinate and grow up, as not knows he. 28Of its own accord for the earth bears fruit, first, a plant, then an ear, then full grain in the ear. 29When but may be ripe the fruit, immediately he sends the sickle, for is ready the harvest. 30And he said: To what may be compare the kingdom of the God? or by what parable may we compare her? 31As a grain of mustard, which, when it may be sown on the earth, less of all of the seeds it is of those on the earth; 32and when it may be shown, it springs up and becomes of all herbs greater, and produces branches great, so as to be under the shadow of it the birds of the heaven to build nests. 33And such like parables many he spoke to them the word, even they were able to hear. 34Without but a parable not he spoke to them; privately but to the disciples of himself he explained all. 35And he says to them in that the day, evening being come: We may pass over to the other side. 36And having left the crowd they took him, as he was in the ship; also other and ships was with him. 37And arose a squall of wind great; the and waves dashed into the ship, so as it was now to fill. 38And was he in the stern, on the pillow sleeping; and they awoke him, and they said to him: O teacher, not it concerns thee, that we perish? 39And having arisen he rebuked the wind, and said to the sea: Be silent, be still. And ceased the wind, and was a calm great. 40And he said to them: Why timid are you so? how not you have faith? 41And they feared a fear great, and said to one another: Who then this is, for even the wind and the sea hearken to him.
