Mark 4:18-19

Context
4:18 Others are the ones sown among thorns: They are those who hear the word, 4:19 but 1  worldly cares, the seductiveness of wealth, 2  and the desire for other things come in and choke the word, 3  and it produces nothing.

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

2 tn Grk “the deceitfulness of riches.” Cf. BDAG 99 s.v. ἀπάτη 1, “the seduction which comes from wealth.”

3 sn That is, their concern for spiritual things is crowded out by material things.
