Christ, after he had preached from place to place, attended with his Apostles, propoundeth the parable of the sower,
Luke 8:4 When much people were gathered together, and were come to hym out of all cytyes, he spake by a symilitude. Luke 8:5 A sower went out to sowe his sede: and as he sowed, some fel by the waye syde: and it was troden vnder fete, and the foules of the ayre deuoured it vp. Luke 8:6 And some fell on the stone, and assone as it was spronge vp, it withered awaye because it lacked moistnes. Luke 8:7 And some fell amonge thornes, and the thornes spronge vp with it, and choked it. Luke 8:8 And some fell on good grounde and spronge vp and bare fruite an hundred folde.

Luke 8:10 And he sayed vnto you is it geuen to knowe the secretes of the kingdome of God: but to other in symylytudes, that when they se, they shoulde not vnderstande.

Luke 8:13 Thei on þe stones, are thei which when they heare, receiue the worde with ioye. But these haue no rotes, whiche for a whyle beleue, & in tyme of temptacion go awaye. Luke 8:14 And that whiche fell amonge thornes, are thei which heare, and go forth, and are choked with cares and with ryches, and voluptuouse liuinge, and bringe forth no fruite. Luke 8:15 That in the good grounde, are they whyche with a good and pure herte, heare the worde and kepe it, and brynge forth fruyte wyth pacience.

Luke 8:17 Nothinge in secrete, that shall not come abrode: Neyther any thynge hyd that shall not be knowen, and come to light. Luke 8:18 Take hede therfore how ye heare. For who soeuer hath, to hym shall be geuen: And whosoeuer hath not, from hym shal be taken, euen that same which he supposeth that he hath.
