Reading : Luke 8:1-21
Shortly thereafter , he walked Yehoshu ‘ from town to town and village to village , preaching and bringing the good news of the kingdom of the eternal God , and went with him , the twelve , 2 and also some women who had been cured of spirits Sidas and malignant diseases : Myriam called Magdalah , which had come seven demons . 3 Y’ochanah , woman Kuza , Attorney Herod, Shoshanh , and many others, which ministered unto him of their substance. 4 Now , raking up a big crowd , and coming to him out of all cities , said Yehoshu ‘ a parable : 5 A sower went out to sow his seed. And as he sowed , some seeds fell along the path , and was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it . 6 Some fell on rock , and sprang up , dried up because it had no moisture . 7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew with it and choked it . 8 But other fell into good ground , and sprang up , and bare fruit an hundredfold . As he said these things, he cried , He that hath ears to hear , let him hear. 9 asked him what his disciples this parable meant . The 10 said , Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of the eternal God : but to others in parables , so that seeing they may not see , and hearing they might not understand . 11 It is, therefore , that the parable : The seed is the word of the eternal God . 12 Those by the way side are they that hear , but then the devil comes and takes away the word out of their hearts , lest they should believe and be saved . 13 They on the rock are those who , hearing the word , receive it with joy: and these have no root, which for a while believe , and in time of temptation fall away . 14 And that which fell among thorns are those who have heard , and going their way they are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life , and bring no fruit to perfection . 15 But that on the good ground are those who , having heard the word honest and good heart , a, retain it and bear fruit with patience . 16 No one , when he hath lighted a candle , covereth it with a vessel , or puts it under a bed, but puts it on a candlestick , that they which come in may see the light . 17 For nothing is hidden that will not manifest , nor anything secret that shall not be known and come to light. 18 Take heed therefore how ye hear : for whoever has will be given , and whoever does not have, even what seems to have will be taken away . 19 Then came to him his mother his brethren , and could not approach him because of the crowd . 20 It was said unto her, Thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to see you. 21 But he answered them , My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of the eternal God and keep it.
