Mark 4:14-20

14The sower sows the word.15These are the ones on the path where the word is sown: when they hear, Satan immediately comes and takes away the word that is sown in them.16And these are the ones sown on rocky ground: when they hear the word, they immediately receive it with joy.17But they have no root, and endure only for a while; then, when trouble or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately they fall away.18And others are those sown among the thorns: these are the ones who hear the word,19but the cares of the world, and the lure of wealth, and the desire for other things come in and choke the word, and it yields nothing.20And these are the ones sown on the good soil: they hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirty and sixty and a hundredfold.”
