lacked moister [moisture]. And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it. And others fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bear fruit hundred fold. And when he had said these things, he 3/ cried, He who hath ears to hear, let him hear. 3/ And his disciples asked him, saying, What might this parable be? And he said; Unto you it is given to know the misteries of the kingdom of God; but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing, they mig4/ht not understand. 4/ Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. That which fell by the way side are they who hear; and the Devil cometh and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should beleive and be saved. That which fell on the rock, are they who, when they hear, receve the word with joy; and they have no root, but for a while believe, and in a time of temptation fall away. And that which fell among thorns are they, who, when they have heard, go forth and are choked with cares, and riches, and pleasures of life, and bring no fruit to perfection. But that which fell on the good ground are they, who receive the word in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keepeth what they hear, and bringeth forth 5/ fruit with patience. 5/ For no man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a Vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but sitteth it on a candlestick, that they who enter in may see the light. For nothing is secret, which shall not be made manefest; neither hid, which shall not be made known and go abroad. Take heed therefore how ye hear; for whosoever receiveth, to him shall be given; and whosoever receiveth not, from him shall be taken even that which he 6/ seemeth to have. 6/ Then came to him his Mother and his breatheren, and could not speak to him for the multitude. And some who stood by, said unto him, They Mother and thy breatheren stand without, desiring to see thee. And he answered and said unto them, My Mother and my breatheren 7/ are those who hear the word of God, and do it. 7/ Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship with his disciples; and he said unto them, Let us go over unto the other side of the Lake. And they launched forth. But as they sailed he fell asleep; and there came down a storm of wind on the Lake; and they were filled with fear, and were in danger. And they came to him, and awoke him, saying; Master, Master, we perish. Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the watter; and they ceased, and there was a calm.
