Treasury of Scripture

And some fell on a rock; and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moisture.

Luke 8:13
They on the rock are they, which, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation fall away.

Jeremiah 5:3
O LORD, are not thine eyes upon the truth? thou hast stricken them, but they have not grieved; thou hast consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction: they have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to return.

Ezekiel 11:19
And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:









(6) Upon a rock.--Better, upon the rock. Note here also the use of a more accurate word than the "stony (or rocky) ground" of the other two reports, and the statement that it withered "because it lacked moisture." This is obviously not without its force in the spiritual interpretation of the parable, the "moisture" being the dew and rain of God's grace, without which the seed could not put forth its roots. This represents one aspect of what was lacking, as the having "no depth of earth "represents another.

Verse 6. - And some fell upon a rock. The picture here is not of a soil full of stones, but of a rocky portion of the corn-land where the rock is only covered with a thin layer of earth.
