    Definitions for Matthew 13:5

    Forthwith - Immediately.

    Clarke's Commentary on Matthew 13:5

    Stony places - Where there was a thin surface of earth, and a rock at the bottom.

    Barnes' Notes on Matthew 13:5

    Stony places - Where there was little earth, but where it was hard and rocky, so that the roots could not strike down into the earth for sufficient moisture to support the plant.

    When the sun became hot they of course withered away. They sprang up the sooner because there was little earth to cover them.

    Forthwith - Immediately. Not that they sprouted and grew any quicker or faster than the others, but they were not so long in reaching the surface. Having little root, they soon withered away.
