13:8 Good ground - Soft, not like that by the highway side; deep, not like the stony ground; purged, not full of thorns.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 13:8


Mt 13:8 But others fell into good ground. The goodness of this last soil consists in its qualities being precisely the reverse of the other three soils. It was not hard, stony, or weedy. Some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. Thirty-fold is now really a first-rate crop, even for such plains as Esdraelon, just below Nazareth. But in the time of Christ there might be realized, in favorable circumstances, a hundred-fold. Intelligent gentlemen (in the plain of Esdraelon) maintain that they have themselves reaped more than a hundred-fold ("Land and Book").
