Genesis 1:29-30

29 And God said, "See, I have given you all herbs that sow seed which are on all the earth, and all manner trees that have fruit in them and sow seed; to be meat for you, 30 and for all beasts of the earth, and unto all fowls of the air, and unto all that creepeth on the earth wherein is life, that they may have all manner herbs and grass for to eat." And even so it was.

Genesis 1:11-12

11 And God said, "Let the earth bring forth herb and grass that sow seed, and fruitful trees that bear fruit, every one in his kind, having their seed in themselves, upon the earth." And it came so to pass. 12 And the earth brought forth herb and grass sowing seed, every one in his kind, and trees bearing fruit and having their seed in themselves, every one in his kind. And God saw that it was good:

Leviticus 19:19

19 "'Keep mine ordinances. Let none of thy cattle gender with a contrary kind, neither sow thy field with mingled seed, neither shalt thou put on any garment of linen and woollen.

Mark 4:8

8 And some fell upon good ground: and did yield fruit that sprang and grew: and brought forth some thirty fold, some sixty fold, and some a hundred fold."

Titus 1:1-16

1 Paul, the servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to preach the faith of God's elect, and the knowledge of that truth, 2 which is after godliness upon the hope of eternal life; which life God, that cannot lie, hath promised before the world began: 3 but hath opened his word at the time appointed, through preaching; which preaching is committed unto me, by the commandment of God our saviour. 4 To Titus, his natural son in the common faith. Grace, mercy, and peace from God the father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ our saviour. 5 For this cause left I thee in Crete: that thou shouldest perform that which was lacking and shouldest ordain elders in every city as I appointed thee. 6 If any be faultless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children, which are not slandered of riot, neither are disobedient. 7 For a bishop must be faultless, as it becometh the minister of God; not stubborn, not angry, no drunkard, no fighter, not given to filthy lucre: 8 but harborous, one that loveth goodness, sober minded, righteous, holy, temperate, 9 and such as cleaveth unto the true word of doctrine, that he may be able to exhort with wholesome learning, and to improve them that say against it. 10 For there are many disobedient and talkers of vanity, and deceivers of minds, namely they of the circumcision, 11 whose mouths must be stopped, which pervert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, because of filthy lucre. 12 One being of themselves, which was a poet of their own said, "The Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, and slow bellies." 13 This witness is true, wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, 14 and not taking heed to Jews fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth. 15 Unto the pure, are all things pure: but unto them that are defiled, and unbelieving, is nothing pure: but even the very minds and consciences of them are defiled. 16 They confess that they know God: but with the deeds they deny him and are abominable, and disobedient, and unto all good works discommendable.

Genesis 1:12

12 And the earth brought forth herb and grass sowing seed, every one in his kind, and trees bearing fruit and having their seed in themselves, every one in his kind. And God saw that it was good:

Hosea 10:12

12 that they might sow unto righteousness, and reap the fruits of well doing: that they might plow up their fresh land and seek the LORD, till he came, and learned them righteousness.

Luke 8:1-56

1 And it fortuned after that, that he himself went throughout cities and towns, preaching, and showing the kingdom of God, and the twelve with him. 2 And also certain women, which were healed of evil spirits, and infirmities: Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils, 3 and Joanna the wife of Chuzaa, Herod's steward; And Susanna; And many others: which ministered unto them of their substance. 4 When much people were gathered together, and were come to him out of all cities, he spake by a similitude, 5 "A sower went out to sow his seed, and as he sowed, some fell by the wayside, and it was trodden under feet, and the fowls of the air devoured it up. 6 And some fell on stone, and as soon as it was sprung up, it withered away, because it lacked moistness. 7 And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up with it, and choked it. 8 And some fell on good ground, and sprang up and bare fruit, a hundred fold." And as he said these things, he cried, "He that hath ears to hear, let him hear." 9 And his disciples asked him, saying, "What manner similitude is this?" 10 And he said, "Unto you is it given to know the secrets of the kingdom of God: but to others in similitudes, that when they see, they should not see, and when they hear they should not understand. 11 The similitude is this: The seed is the word of God. 12 Those that are beside the way, are they that hear, and afterward cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. 13 They on the stones, are they which, when they hear, receive the word with joy. But these have no roots, which for a while believe, and in time of temptation go away. 14 And that which fell among thorns, are they which hear, and go forth, and are choked with cares and with riches, and voluptuous living, and bring forth no fruit. 15 That in the good ground, are they which with a good and pure heart, hear the word, and keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience. 16 No man lighteth a candle, and covereth it under a vessel, neither putteth it under the table: but setteth it on a candlestick, that they that enter in, may see the light. 17 No thing is in secret, that shall not come abroad: Neither any thing hid, that shall not be known, and come to light. 18 Take heed therefore how ye hear. For whosoever hath, to him shall be given: And whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken, even that same which he supposeth that he hath." 19 Then came to him his mother and his brethren, and could not come at him for press. 20 And they told him, saying, "Thy mother and thy brethren stand without, and would see thee." 21 He answered, and said unto them, "My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it." 22 And it chanced on a certain day that he went into a ship, and his disciples also, and he said unto them, "Let us go over unto the other side of the lake." And they launched forth. 23 And as they sailed, he fell asleep. And there arose a storm of wind in the lake, and they were filled with water, and were in jeopardy. 24 And they went to him and awoke him, saying, "Master, Master, we are lost." Then he arose, and rebuked the wind and the tempest of water: and they ceased, and it waxed calm. 25 And he said unto them, "Where is your faith?" They feared and wondered, saying one to another, "What fellow is this? For he commandeth both the winds and water, and they obey him!" 26 And they sailed unto the region of the Gaderenes, which is over against Galilee. 27 And as he went out of the ship to land, there met him a certain man out of the city, which had a devil long time, and ware no clothes, neither abode in any house: but among graves. 28 When he saw Jesus, he cried, and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, "What have I to do with thee Jesus the son of the God most highest? I beseech thee torment me not." 29 Then he commanded the foul spirit to come out of the man. For often times he caught him, and he was bound with chains, and kept with fetters: and he brake the bonds, and was carried of the fiend into wilderness. 30 And Jesus asked him, saying, "What is thy name?" And he said, "Legion," because many devils were entered into him. 31 And they besought him, that he would not command them to go out into the deep. 32 And there was thereby a herd of many swine, feeding on a hill, and they besought him, that he would suffer them to enter into them. And he suffered them. 33 Then went the devils out of the man, and entered into the swine: And the herd took their course, and ran headlong into the lake, and were choked. 34 When the herdsmen saw what had chanced, they fled, and told it in the city and in the villages. 35 And they came out to see what was done. And came to Jesus, and found the man, out of whom the devils were departed, sitting at the feet of Jesus clothed, and in his right mind, and they were afraid. 36 They also which saw it told them by what means he that was possessed of the devil, was healed. 37 And all the whole multitude of the country of the Gaderenites, besought him that he would depart from them: for they were taken with great fear. And he gat him into the ship and returned back again. 38 Then the man out of whom the devils were departed, besought him that he might be with him: But Jesus sent him away, saying, 39 "Go home again into thine own house, and show what great things God hath done to thee." And he went his way, and preached throughout all the city what great things Jesus had done unto him. 40 And it fortuned, when Jesus was come again, that the people received him. For they all waited for him. 41 And behold, there came a man named Jairus: and he was a ruler of the synagogue: and he fell down at Jesus' feet, and besought him that he would come into his house, 42 for he had but a daughter only, upon a twelfth year of age, and she lay a dying. And as he went, the people thronged him. 43 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years: which had spent all her substance among Physicians, neither could be helped of any: 44 came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment, and immediately her issue of blood staunched. 45 And Jesus said, "Who is it that touched me?" When every man denied, Peter and they that were with him, said, "Master, the people thrust thee and vex thee: and thou sayest, 'Who touched me?'" 46 And Jesus said, "Somebody touched me. For I perceive that virtue is gone out of me." 47 When the woman saw that she was not hid from him, she came trembling, and fell at his feet, and told him before all the people, for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately. 48 And he said unto her, "Daughter, be of good comfort. Thy faith hath made thee whole, go in peace." 49 While he yet spake, there came one from the ruler of the synagogue's house, which said to him, "Thy daughter is dead, disease not the master." 50 When Jesus heard that, he answered to the maiden's father, saying, "Fear not. Believe only, and she shall be made whole." 51 And when he came to the house, he suffered no man to go in with him, save Peter, James and John, and the father and the mother of the maiden. 52 Everybody wept and sorrowed for her. And he said, "Weep not: for she is not dead, but sleepeth." 53 And they laughed him to scorn. For they knew that she was dead. 54 And he thrust them all out at the doors, and caught her by the hand, and cried, saying, "Maid arise." 55 And her spirit came again, and she rose straightway. And he commanded to give her meat. 56 And the father and the mother of her were astonished. But he warned them that they should tell no man, what was done.

2 Corinthians 9:6

6 This yet remember, how that he which soweth little, shall reap little: and he that soweth plenteously shall reap plenteously.

1 Peter 1:22-25

22 And forasmuch as ye have purified your souls through the spirit, in obeying the truth for to love brotherly without feigning, see that ye love one another with a pure heart, fervently: 23 for ye are born anew, not of mortal seed, but of immortal seed, by the word of God which liveth, and lasteth forever. 24 For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man is as the flower of grass; the grass is withered, and the flower falleth away, 25 but the word of the Lord endureth ever. And this is the word which by the gospel was preached among you.

Genesis 1:11

11 And God said, "Let the earth bring forth herb and grass that sow seed, and fruitful trees that bear fruit, every one in his kind, having their seed in themselves, upon the earth." And it came so to pass.

Matthew 17:20

20 Jesus said unto them, "Because of your unbelief. For I say verily unto you, if ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye should say unto this mountain, remove hence to yonder place, and he should remove: Neither should any thing be impossible for you to do.

Galatians 6:8

8 He that soweth in his flesh, shall of the flesh reap corruption: but he that soweth in the spirit shall, of the spirit, reap life everlasting.

1 Corinthians 15:36-38

36 Thou fool, that which thou sowest, is not quickened except it die. 37 And what sowest thou? Thou sowest not that body that shall be: but bare corn - I mean either of wheat, or of some other - 38 and God giveth it a body at his pleasure, to every seed a several body.

1 Corinthians 15:38

38 and God giveth it a body at his pleasure, to every seed a several body.

Matthew 13:1-58

1 The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the seaside. 2 And much people resorted unto him; so greatly that he went and sat in a ship, and all the people stood on the shore. 3 And he spake many things to them in similitudes, saying, "Behold, the sower went forth to sow. 4 And as he sowed, some fell by the wayside, and the fowls came, and devoured it up. 5 Some fell upon stony ground where it had not much earth, and anon it sprung up, because it had no depth of earth: 6 And when the sun was up, it caught heat, and for lack of rooting withered away. 7 Some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprung up and choked it. 8 Part fell in good ground, and brought forth good fruit: some a hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. 9 Whosoever hath ears to hear, let him hear." 10 And the disciples came, and said to him, "Why speakest thou to them in parables?" 11 He answered, and said unto them, "It is given unto you to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. 12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given: and he shall have abundance. But whosoever hath not: from him shall be taken away even that same that he hath. 13 Therefore speak I to them in similitudes: For though they see, they see not; and hearing, they hear not, neither understand. 14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah, which prophecy saith, 'With the ears ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and with the eyes ye shall see, and shall not perceive." 15 For this people's hearts are waxed gross. And their ears were dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed, lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their hearts, and should turn, that I might heal them. 16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear. 17 "Verily I say unto you, that many prophets and perfect men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them. 18 Hear ye therefore the similitude of the sower. 19 Whosoever heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, there cometh the evil man, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. And this is he which was sown by the wayside. 20 But he that was sown in the stony ground, is he which heareth the word of God, and anon with joy receiveth it, 21 yet hath no roots in himself, and therefore dureth but a season: for as soon as tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he falleth. 22 He that was sown among thorns, is he that heareth the word of God, but the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and so is he made unfruitful. 23 He which is sown in the good ground, is he, that heareth the word and understandeth it, which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some a hundredfold, some sixtyfold, and some thirtyfold." 24 Another similitude put he forth, unto them saying, "The kingdom of heaven is like unto a man which sowed good seed in his field. 25 But while men slept, there came his foe, and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. 26 When the blade was sprung up, and had brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27 The servants then came to the householder, and said unto him, 'Sir, sowest not thou good seed in thy close, from whence then hath it tares?' 28 But he said to them, 'The envious man hath done this.' Then the servants said unto him, 'Wilt thou then that we go and weed them out?' 29 But he said, 'Nay, lest while ye go about to weed out the tares, ye pluck up also with them the wheat by the roots. 30 Let both grow together till harvest come: and in time of harvest, I will say to the reapers, Gather ye first the tares, and bind them in sheaves to be burnt: but gather the wheat into my barn.'" 31 Another parable he put forth unto them saying, "The kingdom of heaven is like unto a grain of mustard seed, which a man taketh and soweth in his field, which is the least of all seeds. 32 But when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and it is a tree: so that the birds of the air come, and build in the branches of it." 33 Another similitude said he to them, "The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven which a woman taketh and hideth in three pecks of meal, till all be leavened." 34 All these things spake Jesus unto the people by similitudes, and with out similitudes spake he nothing to them, 35 to fulfill that which was spoken by the prophet saying, "I will open my mouth in similitudes, and will speak forth things which have been kept secret from the beginning of the world." 36 Then sent Jesus the people away, and came to house. And his disciples came unto him, saying, "Declare unto us the similitude of the tares in the field." 37 Then answered he and said to them, "He that soweth the good seed, is the son of man, 38 and the field is the world. And the children of the kingdom, they are the good seed. And the tares are the children of the wicked. 39 And the enemy that soweth them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the world. And the reapers be the angels. 40 For even as the tares are gathered, and burnt in the fire, so shall it be in the end of this world. 41 The son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that do offend, and all them which do iniquity, 42 and shall cast them into a furnace of fire. There shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then shall the just men shine as bright as the sun in the kingdom of their father. Whosoever hath ears to hear, let him hear. 44 "Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in the field, the which a man findeth and hideth it: and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field. 45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant, that seeketh good pearls, 46 which when he had found one precious pearl, went and sold all that he had, and bought it. 47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net cast into the sea, that gathereth of all kinds: 48 the which when it is full, men draw to land, and sit and gather the good into their vessels, and cast the bad away. 49 So shall it be at the end of the world. The angels shall go out and sever the bad from the good, 50 and shall cast them into a furnace of fire. There shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth." 51 Jesus said unto them, "Understand ye all these things?" They said, "Yea, Lord." 52 Then said he unto them, "Therefore every scribe which is taught unto the kingdom of heaven, is like a householder, which bringeth forth, out of his treasure, things both new and old." 53 And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these similitudes, that he departed thence, 54 and came in to his own country, and taught them in their synagogues, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, "Whence cometh all this wisdom and power unto him? 55 Is not this the carpenter's son? Is not his mother called Mary? And his brethren be called, James and Joseph and Simon and Judas? 56 And are not his sisters all here with us? Whence hath he all these things?" 57 And they were offended by him. Then Jesus said unto them, "A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and among his own kin." 58 And he did not many miracles there, for their unbelief's sake.

Genesis 1:29

29 And God said, "See, I have given you all herbs that sow seed which are on all the earth, and all manner trees that have fruit in them and sow seed; to be meat for you,
