And he said unto them, 11 What man shall there be of you, that shall have one sheep, and if this fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it ont? How much then is a man of more value 12 than a sheep! Wherefore it is lawful to do good on the sabbath day. Then saith he to the man, 13 Stretch forth thy hand.

some seeds fell by the way side, and the birds 5 came and devoured them: and others fell upon the rocky places, where they had not
