The Birds

Matthew 13 :1- 23 BBE. 13:1 On that day Jesus went out of the house and was seated by the seaside. 13:2 And great numbers of people came together to him, so that he got into a boat; and the people took up their position by the sea.

13:3 And he gave them teaching in the form of a story, saying, A man went out to put seed in the earth; 13:4 And while he did so, some seeds were dropped by the wayside, and the birds came and took them for food:

13:5 And some of the seed went among the stones, where it had not much earth, and straight away it came up because the earth was not deep:

13:6 And when the sun was high, it was burned; and because it had no root it became dry and dead. 13:7 And some seeds went among thorns, and the thorns came up and they had no room for growth: 13:8 And some, falling on good earth, gave fruit, some a hundred, some sixty, some thirty times as much. 13:9 He who has ears, let him give ear. 13:10 And the disciples came and said to him, Why do you say things to them in the form of stories? 13:11 And he said to them in answer, To you is given the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. 13:12 Because whoever has, to him will be given, and he will have more; but from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away. 13:13 For this reason I put things into the form of stories; because they see without seeing, and give ear without hearing, and the sense is not clear to them. 13:14 And for them the words of Isaiah have come true, Though you give ear, you will not get knowledge; and seeing, you will see, but the sense will not be clear to you: 13:15 For the heart of this people has become fat and their ears are slow in hearing and their eyes are shut; for fear that they might see with their eyes and give hearing with their ears and become wise in their hearts and be turned again to me, so that I might make them well. 13:16 But a blessing be
