    Definitions for Mark 4:4

    Fowls - Birds.

    Clarke's Commentary on Mark 4:4

    The fowls - Του ουρανου, of the air, is the common reading; but it should be omitted, on the authority of nine uncial MSS., upwards of one hundred others, and almost all the versions. Bengel and Griesbach have left it out of the text. It seems to have been inserted in Mark, from Luke 8:5.
