Psalms 78:1-8 My people, give ear to my Turah, incline your ears to the words of my mouth. (2) I open my mouth in a parable; I utter riddles of old, (3) Which we have heard and known, for our fathers have related them to us. (4) We do not hide them from their children, relating to the generation to come the praises of YAHUAH, and His strength and His wonders which He has done. (5) For He raised a witness in Yaw’aqub, and set a Turah in Yashur’al, which He commanded our fathers, to teach them to their children; (6) That it might be known to a generation to come, to children who would be born, to rise up and relate them to their children, (7) And place their trust in Aluahim, And not forget the works of Al, but watch over His commands, (8) And not be like their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation, a generation which did not prepare its heart, whose spirit was not steadfast to Al.
Proverbs 13:23 Much food is in the tillable ground of the poor, but lack of right-ruling sweeps it away.
Yurumyahu (Jeremiah) 4:1-4 “If you do return, O Yashur’al,” declares YAHUAH, “return to Me. And if you remove your abominations from My presence, and cease straying, (2) and shall swear, ‘As YAHUAH lives,’ in truth, in right-ruling, and in righteousness – then nations shall adore themselves in Him, and they shall boast in Him!” (3) For this is what YAHUAH said to the men of Yahudah and Yurushalam, “Break up your tillable ground, and do not sow among thorns. (4) “Circumcise yourselves unto YAHUAH, and take away the foreskins of your hearts, you men of Yahudah and inhabitants of Yurushalam, lest My wrath come forth like fire and burn, with none to quench it, because of the evil of your deeds.”
Husha’aw (Hoshea) 10:12-13 Sow for yourselves righteousness, reap according to kindness, break up your tillable ground, it is time to seek YAHUAH, till He comes and rains righteousness on you. (13) You have ploughed wrongness, you have reaped unrighteousness, you have eaten the fruit of lying, because you trusted in your own way, in your many mighty men.
Matatyahu 13:1-9 And on that day YAHUSHUA went out of the house and sat by the sea. (2) And large crowds were gathered together to Him, so that He went into a boat and sat down. And all the crowd stood on the beach. (3) And He spoke to them much in parables, saying, “See, the sower went out to sow. (4) “And as he sowed, some indeed fell by the wayside, and the birds came and devoured them. (5) “And others fell on rocky places, where they did not have much soil, and immediately they sprang up, because they had no depth of soil. (6) “But when the sun was up they were scorched, and because they had no root they withered. (7) “And others fell among thorns, and the thorns came up and choked them. (8) “And others fell on good soil and yielded a crop, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. (9) “He who has ears to hear, let him hear!”
Luke 8:11-15 “And this is the parable: The seed is the word of Aluahim. (12) “And those by the wayside are the ones who hear, then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, lest having believed, they should be saved. (13) “And those on the rock are those who, when they hear, receive the word with joy. And these have no root, who believe for a while and in time of trial fall away. (14) “And that which fell among thorns are those who, when they have heard, go out and are choked with worries, and riches, and pleasures of life, and bring no fruit to perfection. (15) “And that on the good soil are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, retain it, and bear fruit with endurance.”
Awburim (Hebrews) 6:7-8 For ground that is drinking the rain often falling on it, and is bearing plants fit for those by whom it is tilled, receives adoration from Aluahim, (8) but if it brings forth thorns and thistles, it is rejected and near to being cursed, and ends up by being burned.
