    Such a man only fears the eyes of men, and knows not that the eyes of the Lord are ten thousand times brighter than the sun, beholding all the ways of men, and considering the most secret parts. Behold, the Lord knows all the works of men, their imaginations, their thoughts, and their hearts: there is no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves: no disciple.

    Vs.19 says that they could not understand the word sewn by Jesus. The next 2 received it but fell aside. Only the 4th brought forth fruit. This chapter is about predestination Rom.8:29-30) It is God who gives the ability to receive and understand the word randomly established before He created the earth. Jesus told the Jewish leaders that they can't understand as they were not of God - destined
