He did not say anything to them without using a parable. But when he was alone with his own disciples, he explained everything.
King James Bible
But without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples.
American Standard Version
and without a parable spake he not unto them: but privately to his own disciples he expounded all things.
Young's Literal Translation
and without a simile he was not speaking to them, and by themselves, to his disciples he was expounding all.
Mark 4:34 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
He expounded all things to his disciples - That they might be capable of instructing others. Outside hearers, those who do not come into close fellowship with the true disciples of Christ, have seldom more than a superficial knowledge of Divine things.
In the fellowship of the saints, where Jesus the teacher is always to be found, every thing is made plain, - for the secret of the Lord is with them who fear him.
