Matthew 7

JUDGE not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment that you judge, you shall be judged; and with the measure that you mete, it shall be measured to you. But why dost thou look at the rod that is in thy brother's eye, while the rafter that is in thine own eye thou dost not consider? Or how sayest thou to thy brother, Permit that I draw forth the rod from thine eye, and, behold, there is a rafter in thine own eye? Hypocrite! draw forth first the rafter from thine own eye, and then thou wilt see to draw forth the rod from thy brother's eye. Give not the holy unto dogs, and throw not your precious stones before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one who asketh receiveth, and he who seeketh findeth; and to him who knocketh it is opened. Or what man from among you, who if his son shall ask bread, will reach forth a stone to him? 10 if a fish he shall ask of him, a serpent will he reach forth to him? 11 If, therefore, you who are evil know to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him? 12 All therefore that you will that men shall do unto you, so also do you unto them: for this is the law and the prophets. 13 ENTER in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and spacious the way, that conducteth to destruction; and they are many who go therein. 14 How small is the gate, and narrow the way, that leadeth unto salvation; and they are few who find it! 15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but within are ravening wolves. 16 By their fruits you shall know them. Do they gather from thorns grapes, or from briers figs? 17 So every good tree maketh good fruits; but an evil tree maketh evil fruits. 18 A good tree cannot make evil fruits, nor an evil tree make good fruits. 19 Every tree that maketh not good fruits is cut down, and falleth into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them. 21 Not every one that saith to me, My Lord, my Lord, entereth into the kingdom of heaven; but he who doeth the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Multitudes will say to me in that day My Lord, my Lord, in thy name have we not prophesied, and in thy name ejected devils, and in thy name performed many mighty works? 23 And then will I confess to them, I never knew you; go far from me, ye workers of iniquity. 24 Every one therefore who heareth these my words, and doeth them, shall be likened to a wise man, who built his house upon a rock. 25 And the rain descended, and the torrents came, and the winds blew, and rushed against that house, but it fell not, for its foundations were placed upon the rock. 26 And every one who heareth these my words, and doeth them not, shall be likened to a man who built his house upon sand. 27 And the rain descended, and the torrents came, and the winds blew, and rushed against that house, and it fell, and the ruin of it was great. 28 And when Jeshu had finished these words, the multitudes wondered at his doctrine. 29 For he taught them as one having power, and not as their scribes and the Pharishee.
