Christ, after he had preached from place to place, attended with his Apostles, propoundeth the parable of the sower,
Luke 8:4 When moch people were gathered together, and were come to him out of all cytes, he spake by a similytude. Luke 8:5 The sower wente out to sowe hys seede: and as he sowed, some fell by the waye syde, & it was troden downe, and the foules of the ayre deuoured it vp. Luke 8:6 And some fell on stone, and as sone as it was spronge vp, it withred awaye because it lacked moystnes. Luke 8:7 And some fell amonge thornes, and the thornes sprange vp with it, and choked it. Luke 8:8 And some fel on good grounde, and sprange vp, and bare frute, an hundred folde. And as he sayd these thinges, he cryed: He that hath eares to heare, let hym heare. Luke 8:9 And his disciples asked hym sayenge: what maner of simylytude is thys? Luke 8:10 And he sayd: vnto you is it geuen to knowe the secretes of the kingdome of God: but to other by parables, þt when they se, they shuld not se: & when they heare, they shuld not vnderstande. Luke 8:11 The parable is this. The seed is þe worde of God. Luke 8:12 Those that are besyde the waye, are they that heare, then commeth the deuyll, and taketh a waye the worde out of their hertes, lest they shulde beleue and be saued. Luke 8:13 They on the stones, are they which when they heare, receaue the word with ioye, and these haue no rotes: which for a whyle beleue, and in tyme of temptacyon go awaye. Luke 8:14 And that which fell amonge thornes, are they which whan they haue heard, go forth, and are choked with cares and ryches, and volupteous lyuinge, and brynge forth no frute. Luke 8:15 That which fell in the good grounde, are they, which with a pure and good herte heare the worde, and kepe it, and brynge forth frute thorow pacyence.

Luke 8:16 No man, whan he lyghteth a candell, couereth it with a vessel, or putteth it vnder a table, but setteth it on a candelsticke, that they which enter in, maye se the light. Luke 8:17 Nothing is in secret, þt shal not come abrode. Nether any thynge hydd, that shall not be knowen, and come to lyghte. Luke 8:18 Take hede therfore, howe ye heare. For whosoeuer hath, to hym shalbe geuen: And whosoeuer hath not, from him shalbe taken: euen that same which he supposeth that he hath.
Luke 8:19 Then came to him his mother & his brethren, and coulde not come at him for prease Luke 8:20 And it was tolde hym, and sayde: Thy mother and thy brethren stande without, and wold se the.

Luke 8:22 And it chaunsed on a certayne daye, þt he went into a shyp, and his disciples also, & he sayde vnto them: Let vs go ouer vnto the other side of the lake. And they launched forth Luke 8:23 But as they sayled, he fell a slepe and there arose a storme of wynde in the lake, & they were fylled wt water, and were in ieopardy. Luke 8:24 And they came to hym, and awoke hym saying: Master master, we are loost. Then he arose, and rebuked the wynde and the tempest of water, and they ceased, and it wexed calme. Luke 8:25 And he sayde vnto them: where is youre fayth? They feared, and wondred amonge them selues, saying: what (thynke ye) is thys? for he commaundeth both the windes & water, and they obey hym?

For ofte tymes he had caught hym, and he was bounde with chaynes, and kepte with fetters: and he brake the bondes, and was caryed of the fende into wyldernes.

Luke 8:34 When the herdmen sawe what had chaunsed, they fled, and tolde it in the cytie & in the villages.

But Iesus sent him awaye, sayinge: Luke 8:39 Go home agayne to thyne awne house, and shewe what thinges soeuer God hath done for þe. And he went his waye, and preached thorow out all the cytie, what thinges soeuer Iesus had done vnto him. Luke 8:40 And it fortuned that when Iesus was come agayne, the people receaued him. For they all wayted for him.

Luke 8:46 And Iesus sayd: Some body hath touched me. For I perceaue, that vertue is gone out of me.

Luke 8:51 And when he came to the house, he suffred no man to go in with hym, saue Peter, Iames, and Iohn, and the father and the mother of the mayden. Luke 8:52 Euery body weept, and sorowed for her. And he said: Wepe not. The damosel is not deed, but slepeth. Luke 8:53 And they laught hym to scorne, knowyng that she was deed. Luke 8:54 And he thrust them all out, and caught her by the hand, and cryed, sayinge: Mayde, aryse. Luke 8:55 And her sprete came agayne, and she rose straight waye.
