“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 which he seemeth to have.”
King James Version (KJV)
8:18 The word commonly translated seemeth, wherever it occurs, does not weaken, but greatly strengthens the sense. #Mt 13:12|; Mr 4:25; Lu 19:26.
Lu 8:18 Take heed. Mark says, "Take heed 'what' you hear" (Mr 4:24); Luke, "'how' you hear". "What" we hear depends on "how" we hear; i.e., our attention and honesty.
