Matthew 13:7 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Sprang up

The seed, therefore, fell, not among standing thorns, but among those beneath the surface, ready to spring up.

Trench ("Parables") cites a striking parallel from Ovid, describing the obstacles to the growth of the grain:

"Now the too ardent sun, vow furious showers,

With baleful stars and bitter winds combine

The crop to ravage; while the greedy fowl

Snatch the strewn seeds; and grass with stubborn roots,

And thorn and darnel plague the ripening grain."

Metamorphoses, v., 486.
