Behold they <​thy​> Mother & thy Brethren <​without​> seek for thee. & <​And​> he answered them, saying, Who is <​are​> my Mother, or <​who are​> my Brethren? & <​And​> he looked round about on them & said <​whi​> which sat about him, & said, Behold my mother & my Brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my Mother & Sister & Brother Brother, & my Sist[e]r, & Mother.

Chapter 4
<​1/​> And he began again to teach by the sea side; & there was gethered unto him a great Multitude, So that he entered into a Ship & Sat in the Sea; & the <​2/​> whole multitude was by the sea on the Land. <​2/​> & <​And​> he taught them many things by Parables. & <​And​> he said unto them by doctrine in his doctrine, Hearken; behold, there went out a Sower to Sow; & it came to pass as he sowed, some fell by the way side, & the fowls of the air came & devoured it up. &<​And​> some fell on stony ground, where it had not much Earth; & immediately it sprang up, <​&​> because it had no depth of Earth but when the Sun was up, it was scorched; <​&​> because it had no root, & it withered away. & <​And​> some fell among thorns, & the thorns grew up & choked it; & it yielded no fruit. & <​And​> other seed fell on good ground, & did yield fruit, that sprang up & increased, & brought forth, some thirty <​fold​>, <​&​> some & sixty, & some a hundred. & <​And​> he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear <​3/​> let him hear. <​3/​> & <​And​> when he was alone they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the Parable <​& <​wi​>th the Deciples​> with the twelve & they that believed in him, <​thy​> <​they​> that were about him with the twelve, asked of him the Parable. & <​And​> he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God; but unto them that are without, all things are done in Parables; that seeing, they may see & not perceive; & hearing, they may hear & not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, <​4​> & their shons <​sins​> should be forgiven them. <​4/​> & <​And​> he said unto them, know ye not this Parable? & <​And​> how then will ye know all Parables? & The sower soweth the word. & <​And​> these are they by the wayside, where the word is sowed; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately & taketh away the word that was sowed in their hearts. & <​And​> these are they likewise which <​who​> were sown <​receve the word​> on stony ground; Who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness, & have no root in themselves, & so endure but for a time; <​&​> afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the words sake, immediately they are offended. & <​And​> these are they which <​who​> are sown <​receive the word​> among thorns; such as hear the word, & the cares of this world, & the deceitfulness of riches, & the lusts of other things [p. 14 (second numbering)]
Behold thy Mother & thy Brethren without seek for thee. And he answered them, saying, Who are my Mother, or who are my Brethren? & And he looked round about on them which sat about him, & said, Behold my mother & my Brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my Brother, & my Sister, & Mother.
Mark, Chapter 4
Chapter 4
1/ And he began again to teach by the sea side; & there was gethered unto him a great Multitude, So that he entered into a Ship & Sat in the Sea; & the 2/ whole multitude was by the sea on the Land. 2/ & And he taught them many things by Parables. & And he said unto them in his doctrine, Hearken; behold, there went out a Sower to Sow; & it came to pass as he sowed, some fell by the way side, & the fowls of the air came & devoured it up. &And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much Earth; & immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of Earth but when the Sun was up, it was scorched; & because it had no root, it withered away. And some fell among thorns, & the thorns grew up & choked it; & it yielded no fruit. And other seed fell on good ground, & did yield fruit, that sprang up & increased, & brought forth, some thirty fold, & some sixty, & some a hundred. And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear 3/ let him hear. 3/ And when he was alone with the twelve & they that believed in him, they that were about him with the twelve, asked of him the Parable. And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God; but unto them that are without, all things are done in Parables; that seeing, they may see & not perceive; & hearing, they may hear & not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, 4 & their sins should be forgiven them. 4/ And he said unto them, know ye not this Parable? And how then will ye know all Parables? The sower soweth the word. And these are they by the wayside, where the word is sowed; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately & taketh away the word that was sowed in their hearts. And these are they likewise who receve the word on stony ground; Who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness, & have no root in themselves, & so endure but for a time; & afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the words sake, immediately they are offended. And these are they who receive the word among thorns; such as hear the word, & the cares of this world, & the deceitfulness of riches, & the lusts of other things [p. 14 (second numbering)]
