MT 7:1  Judge not, that you may not be judged,

MT 7:2  For with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged: and with what measure you mete, it shall be measured to you again.

MT 7:3  Any why seest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye; and seest not the beam that is in thy own eye?

MT 7:4  Or how sayest thou to thy brother: Let me cast the mote out of thy eye; and behold a beam is in thy own eye?

MT 7:5  Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam in thy own eye, and then shalt thou see to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

MT 7:6  Give not that which is holy to dogs; neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest perhaps they trample them under their feet, and turning upon you, they tear you.

MT 7:7  Ask, and it shall be given you: seek, and you shall find: knock, and it shall be opened to you.

MT 7:8  For every one that asketh, receiveth: and he that seeketh, findeth: and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened.

MT 7:9  Or what man is there among you, of whom if his son shall ask bread, will he reach him a stone?

MT 7:10  Or if he shall ask him a fish, will he reach him a serpent?

MT 7:11  If you then being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children: how much more will your Father who is in heaven, give good things to them that ask him?

MT 7:12  All things therefore whatsoever you would that men should do to you, do you also to them. For this is the law and the prophets.

MT 7:13  Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat.

MT 7:14  How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it!

MT 7:15  Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

MT 7:16  By their fruits you shall know them. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

MT 7:17  Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, and the evil tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

MT 7:18  A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can an evil tree bring forth good fruit.

MT 7:19  Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit, shall be cut down, and shall be cast into the fire.

MT 7:20  Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them.

MT 7:21  Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven.

MT 7:22  Many will say to me in that day: Lord, Lord, have not we prophesied in thy name, and cast out devils in thy name, and done many miracles in thy name?

MT 7:23  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.

MT 7:24  Every one therefore that heareth these my words, and doth them, shall be likened to a wise man that built his house upon a rock,

MT 7:25  And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat upon that house, and it fell not, for it was founded on a rock.

MT 7:26  And every one that heareth these my words, and doth them not, shall be like a foolish man that built his house upon the sand,

MT 7:27  And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat upon that house, and it fell, and great was the fall thereof.

MT 7:28  And it came to pass when Jesus had fully ended these words, the people were in admiration at his doctrine.

MT 7:29  For he was teaching them as one having power, and not as the scribes and Pharisees.
