7:1 Judge not that you be not judged.
2 For with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged, and with what measure you measure, it shall be measured to you.
3 And why beholdest thou the splinter that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thy own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother: Let me pull the splinter out of thy eye, and behold, the beam is in thy own eye.
5 Hypocrite, pull first the beam out of thy own eye, and then thou shalt see clearly to pull the splinter out of thy brother’s eye.
6 Give not that which is holy to dogs, neither throw your pearls before swine, less they trample them with their feet, and turn and tear you.
7 Ask, and it shall be given you: seek, and you shall find: knock, and it shall be opened to you.
8 For every one that asks receives; and he that seeks finds; and to him that knocks it shall be opened.
9 Or what man is there of you, of whom should his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?
10 or if he should also ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
11 If then you being evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in the heavens give good gifts to those who ask him?
12 All things therefore whatever you would that men should do to you, even so do you to them; for this is the law and the prophets.
13 Enter in through the strait gate; for wide the gate and broad the way that leads to destruction; and many are they that go in through it;
14 for strait is the gate, and narrow the way that leads to life, and few are they that find it.
15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but within are ravenous wolves.
16 By their fruits you shall know them. Do men gather grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles?
17 So every good tree produces goodly fruit; but the corrupt tree produces evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot produce evil fruit; neither can a corrupt tree produce goodly fruit.
19 Every tree that does not produce goodly fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
20 Therefore, by their fruits you shall know them.
21 Not every one that says to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of the heavens, but he that does the will of my Father who is in the heavens.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy by thy name, and by thy name cast out demons, and by thy name do many mighty works?
23 And then will I confess to them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.
24 Every one therefore that hears these words of mine and does them, shall be likened to a wise man, who built his house on the rock.
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat upon that house, and it fell not; for it was founded on the rock.
26 And every one that hears these words of mine, and does them not, shall be likened to a foolish man who built his house upon the sand.
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat upon that house, and it fell; and great was its fall.
28 And it came to pass when Jesus had finished these words, the multitudes were astonished at his teaching;
29 for he taught them as having authority and not as their scribes.
