Matthew 13:19 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

When any one heareth

The rendering would be made even more graphic by preserving the continuous force of the present tense, as exhibiting action in progress, and the simultaneousness of Satan's work with that of the gospel instructor. "While any one is hearing, the evil one is coming and snatching away, just as the birds do not wait for the sower to be out of the way, but are at work while he is sowing.

He which received seed (ὁ σπαρείς)

Lit., and much better, Rev., He that was sown; identifying the seed of the figure with the man signified.
