This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Mar 4:21. Καὶ, and) Mar 4:24 is closely connected with Mar 4:20, and those that go before: therefore also this comes in between parenthetically; comp. Luk 8:16. In this sense, the earth covers for a considerably long time the seed committed to it; whereas you, on the contrary, ought to put forth into action the power of the word, which you have heard, immediately upon hearing it.-ὁλύχνος, a candle [torch-light]) So also Christ comes, together with His Gospel, as the true light. And a man himself ought to be, not the bushel, but the candlestick; comp. Luk 8:16-18.-κλίνην, a couch [not as Engl). Vers., [34] [35][36][37]) where food is taken.
