This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

Mar 4:28. Αὐτομάτη, of its own accord) This is not to the exclusion of cultivation of the land, the rain from heaven, and the sun’s beams. [But there is also intimated a freedom of increasing and growing, either in good or evil, granted by the Lord of the land to the man.-V. g.]-χόρτον, the blade) the grass-like young shoot; so in the commencement spiritual virtues [graces] are scarcely to be distinguished from natural ones.-εἶτα, then next) Marvellous is the process of the successive increase: this shall hereafter be made manifest.
