John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 8:15

Who — keep it — Not like the highway side: And bring forth fruit — Not like the thorny ground: With perseverance — Not like the stony.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Luke 8:15

But that on the good ground are they, which in an (d) honest and good heart, having heard the word, (e) keep [it], and bring forth fruit with patience.

(d) Who seek not only to seem to be such, but are indeed so: so that this word "honest" refers to the outward life, and the word "good" refers to the good gifts of the mind.

(e) With much difficulty, for the devil and the flesh fight against the Spirit of God, who is a new guest.
