entering in, choke the word, & it becometh unfruitfull. & <​And​> these are they which <​who​> are sowed <​Sown​> <​receive the word​> on good ground; such as hear the word, & hear it receive it, & bring forth <​fruit;​> some thirty fold, some Sixty, & some a hundred. <​5/​> & <​And​> he said unto them, Is a candle brought to be put under a bushel, or under a bed, & not <​to be​> set on a candlestick? I say unto you, Nay; for there is nothing hid, which shall not be manafested; neither was any thing kept Secret, but that it should in due time come abroad. If any man <​6/​> have ears to hear, lest <​let​> him hear. <​6/​> & <​And​> he said unto them, Take heed what you hear; for with what measure you mete, it shall be measured to you; & unto you that <​continue to​> receive, shall more be given; for he that hath <​doth receiveth,​> to him shall be given; & <​but​> he that hath <​continueth​> not <​to receive,​> from him shall be taken <​7/​> even that which he hath. <​7/​> & <​And​> he says <​said,​> So is the Kingdom of God; as if a man should cast seed into the ground; & should sleep & rise, night & day, & the seed should spring & grow up, he knoweth not how; for the Earth bringeth forth fruit of herself, first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear. But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he puteth in the Sickle, because <​8/​> the harvest is come. <​8/​> & <​And​> he said, Where unto shall I liken the Kingdom of God? Or with what comparison shall we compare it? It is like a grain of Musterdseed, <​which,​> when it is sown in the Earth, it is less then all the seeds that be in the Earth; but, when it is sown it groweth up, & becometh greater then all herbs, & shooteth out greater branch<​9/​>es; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it. <​9/​> & <​And​> with many such Parables spake he the word unto them, as they were able to hear <​bear​>; but without a Parable spake he not unto them. & <​And​> when they were <​10/​> alone, he expounded all things unto his deciples. <​10/​> & <​And​> the same day, when the even was come, he saith <​said​> unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side. & <​And​> when they had sent away the multitude, they sent <​took​> him even as he was in the Ship. & <​And​> there were also with him other little <​11/​> Ships. <​11/​> & <​And​> there arose a great storm of wind, & the waves beat <​over​> into the ship; so that it was now full & he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow; & they awoke him, & say <​said​> unto him, Master, carest <​thou​> not thou that we perish? & <​And​> he arose & rebuked the wind, & said unto the sea, Peace, be still. & <​And​> the wind ceased & there was a great calm. & <​And​> he said unto them, Why are ye so fearfull? How is it that ye have no faith? & <​And​> they feared exceedingly, & said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind & the sea obey him? [p. 15 (second numbering)]
entering in, choke the word, & it becometh unfruitfull. And these are they who receive the word on good ground; such as hear the word, & receive it, & bring forth fruit; some thirty fold, some Sixty, & some a hundred. 5/ And he said unto them, Is a candle brought to be put under a bushel, or under a bed, & not to be set on a candlestick? I say unto you, Nay; for there is nothing hid, which shall not be manafested; neither was any thing kept Secret, but that it should in due time come abroad. If any man 6/ have ears to hear, let him hear. 6/ And he said unto them, Take heed what you hear; for with what measure you mete, it shall be measured to you; & unto you that continue to receive, shall more be given; for he that receiveth, to him shall be given; but he continueth not to receive, from him shall be taken 7/ even that which he hath. 7/ And he said, So is the Kingdom of God; as if a man should cast seed into the ground; & should sleep & rise, night & day, & the seed should spring & grow up, he knoweth not how; for the Earth bringeth forth fruit of herself, first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear. But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he puteth in the Sickle, because 8/ the harvest is come. 8/ And he said, Where unto shall I liken the Kingdom of God? Or with what comparison shall we compare it? It is like a grain of Musterdseed, which, when it is sown in the Earth, is less then all the seeds that be in the Earth; but, when it is sown it groweth up, & becometh greater then all herbs, & shooteth out great branch9/es; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it. 9/ & And with many such Parables spake he the word unto them, as they were able to bear; but without a Parable spake he not unto them. And when they were 10/ alone, he expounded all things unto his deciples. 10/ And the same day, when the even was come, he said unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side. And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the Ship. And there were also with him other little 11/ Ships. 11/ And there arose a great storm of wind, & the waves beat over into the ship; & he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow; & they awoke him, & said unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? And he arose & rebuked the wind, & said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased & there was a great calm. And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearfull? How is it that ye have no faith? & And they feared exceedingly, & said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind & the sea obey him? [p. 15 (second numbering)]
