Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:1 - “Do not judge others, and you will not be judged.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:2 - For you will be treated as you treat others.[fn] The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged.[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:3 - “And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye[fn] when you have a log in your own?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:4 - How can you think of saying to your friend,[fn] ‘Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:5 - Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:6 - “Don’t waste what is holy on people who are unholy.[fn] Don’t throw your pearls to pigs! They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:7 - “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:8 - For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:9 - “You parents—if your children ask for a loaf of bread, do you give them a stone instead?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:10 - Or if they ask for a fish, do you give them a snake? Of course not!

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:11 - So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:12 - “Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:13 - “You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell[fn] is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:14 - But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:15 - “Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:16 - You can identify them by their fruit, that is, by the way they act. Can you pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:17 - A good tree produces good fruit, and a bad tree produces bad fruit.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:18 - A good tree can’t produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:19 - So every tree that does not produce good fruit is chopped down and thrown into the fire.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:20 - Yes, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit, so you can identify people by their actions.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:21 - “Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:22 - On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:23 - But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws.’

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:24 - “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:25 - Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:26 - But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand.

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:27 - When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.”

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:28 - When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching,

Unchecked Copy BoxMat 7:29 - for he taught with real authority—quite unlike their teachers of religious law.
