Bible commentary

People's Bible Notes for Matthew 13:7


Mt 13:7 And some fell among thorns. More literally, "into the thorns". The traveler, today, finds Palestine literally a land of thorns, of thistles, brambles, and thorny bushes. Thorns sprung up, and choked them. Or, as Wycliffe renders it, "The thorns sprang up and strangled it". The thorns suffocated the growing plant.
