Matthew 13:21

Greek/English Interlinear with Strong’s Numbers


King James Version

Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.
New King James Version

“yet he has no root in himself, but endures only for a while. For when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he stumbles.
New American Standard Bible

yet he has no firm root in himself but is only temporary, and when affliction or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he falls away (is caused to stumble).
New International Version

But since he has no root, he lasts only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, he quickly falls away.
The Amplified Bible

Yet it has no real root in him, but is temporary (inconstant, lasts but a little while); and when affliction or trouble or persecution comes on account of the Word, at once he is caused to stumble [he is repelled and begins to distrust and desert Him Whom he ought to trust and obey] and he falls away.
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

And he does not have rootage in himself, but is by nature a temporizer, and the pressure of circumstances having come, and persecution because of the Word, immediately he sees in that of which he disapproves and which hinders him from acknowledging its authority.
Phillips’ Modern English

But it has not taken root in him and does not last long – the moment trouble or persecution arises through the message he gives up his faith at once.
Williams’ Language of the People

but it takes no real root in him, and he lasts only a little while, and just as soon as suffering and persecution come for the truth’s sake, he at once yields and falls (literally, he is caused to stumble).
