This is the seed sown along the path.19When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart. This is what was sown along the path.19"When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart.

This is he which received seed by the way side.19When anyone hears the word about the kingdom and doesn't understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart.
