Mark 4:27 Commentary - Whedon's Commentary on the Old and New Testaments
27. Should sleep, and rise night and day That is, who sleep, night, and rise, day. He knoweth not how He knows what must be done by him in order that the process may take place, but the process itself is a secret to him. The plants grow while he sleeps. But if he were awake, nature nevertheless works in secret before his eyes.
