7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
7:2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and the
measure which ye give, shall be measured to you again.
7:3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's
eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thy own eye?
7:4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the
mote out of thy eye; and behold, a beam [is] in thy own eye?
7:5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thy own eye;
and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy
7:6 Give not that which [is] holy to dogs, neither cast ye your
pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet,
and turn again and rend you.
7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find;
knock, and the door shall be opened to you:
7:8 For every one that asketh, receiveth; and he that seeketh,
findeth; and to him that knocketh, the door shall be opened.
7:9 Or what man is there of you, who, if his son shall ask
bread, will give him a stone?
7:10 Or if he shall ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
7:11 If ye then being evil know [how] to give good gifts to your
children, how much more shall your Father who is in heaven give
good things to them that ask him?
7:12 Therefore all things whatever ye would that men should do
to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the
7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate; for wide [is] the gate, and
broad [is] the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there
are who go in by it.
7:14 Because strait [is] the gate, and narrow [is] the way,
which leadeth to life, and few there are that find it.
7:15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's
clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits: Do men gather grapes
from thorns, or figs from thistles:
7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a
corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither [can] a
corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down,
and cast into the fire.
7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them,
7:21 Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter
into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my
Father who is in heaven.
7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not
prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out demons?
and in thy name done many wonderful works?
7:23 And then will I profess to them, I never knew you: depart
from me, ye that work iniquity.
7:24 Therefore whoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth
them, I will liken him to a wise man, who built his house upon
7:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds
blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was
founded upon a rock.
7:26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth
them not, shall be likened to a foolish man, who built his
house upon the sand:
7:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds
blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell, and great was the
fall of it.
7:28 And it came to pass when Jesus had ended these sayings, the
people were astonished at his doctrine.
7:29 For he taught them as [one] having authority, and not as
