Listen to the Bible

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:1 - “Judge not, that you be not judged.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:2 - “For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:3 - “And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:4 - “Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:5 - “Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:6 - “Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:7 - “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:8 - “For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:9 - “Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:10 - “Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 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 those who ask Him!

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:12 - “Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:13 - “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:14 - “Because[fn] narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:15 - “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:16 - “You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:17 - “Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:18 - “A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:19 - “Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:20 - “Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:21 - “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:22 - “Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:23 - “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:24 - “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:25 - “and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:26 - “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand:

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:27 - “and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:28 - And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that the people were astonished at His teaching,

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:29 - for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
