Luke 8:6

Context
8:6 Other seed fell on rock, 1  and when it came up, it withered because it had no moisture.

Luke 8:13

Context
8:13 Those 2  on the rock are the ones who receive the word with joy when they hear it, but they have no root. They believe for a while, 3  but 4  in a time of testing 5  fall away. 6 

1 sn The rock in Palestine would be a limestone base lying right under the soil.

2 tn Here δέ (de) has not been translated.

3 sn This time of temporary faith represented by the description believe for a while is presented rather tragically in the passage. The seed does not get a chance to do all it can.

4 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “but” to indicate the contrast present in this context.

5 tn Traditionally, “temptation.” Such a translation puts the emphasis on temptation to sin rather than testing of faith, which is what the context seems to indicate.

6 sn Fall away. On the idea of falling away and the warnings against it, see 2 Tim 3:1; Heb 3:12; Jer 3:14; Dan 9:9.
