040:007:001
Judge not,
that ye be not judged.


040:007:002
For with what judgment ye judge,
ye shall be judged:
and with what measure ye mete,
it shall be measured to you again.


040:007:003
And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye,
but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?


040:007:004
Or how wilt thou say to thy brother,
Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye;
and,
behold,
a beam is in thine own eye?


040:007:005
Thou hypocrite,
first cast out the beam out of thine own eye;
and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.


040:007:006
Give not that which is holy unto the dogs,
neither cast ye your pearls before swine,
lest they trample them under their feet,
and turn again and rend you.


040:007:007
Ask,
and it shall be given you;
seek,
and ye shall find;
knock,
and it shall be opened unto you:


040:007:008
For every one that asketh receiveth;
and he that seeketh findeth;
and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.


040:007:009
Or what man is there of you,
whom if his son ask bread,
will he give him a stone?


040:007:010
Or if he ask a fish,
will he give him a serpent?


040:007:011
If ye then,
being evil,
know how to give good gifts unto your children,
how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?


040:007:012
Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you,
do ye even so to them:
for this is the law and the prophets.


040:007:013
Enter ye in at the strait gate:
for wide is the gate,
and broad is the way,
that leadeth to destruction,
and many there be which go in thereat:


040:007:014
Because strait is the gate,
and narrow is the way,
which leadeth unto life,
and few there be that find it.


040:007:015
Beware of false prophets,
which come to you in sheep's clothing,
but inwardly they are ravening wolves.


040:007:016
Ye shall know them by their fruits.
Do men gather grapes of thorns,
or figs of thistles?


040:007:017
Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit;
but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.


040:007:018
A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit,
neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.


040:007:019
Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down,
and cast into the fire.


040:007:020
Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.


040:007:021
Not every one that saith unto me,
Lord,
Lord,
shall enter into the kingdom of heaven;
but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.


040:007:022
Many will say to me in that day,
Lord,
Lord,
have we not prophesied in thy name?
and in thy name have cast out devils?
and in thy name done many wonderful works?


040:007:023
And then will I profess unto them,
I never knew you:
depart from me,
ye that work iniquity.


040:007:024
Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine,
and doeth them,
I will liken him unto a wise man,
which built his house upon a rock:


040:007:025
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.


040:007:026
And every one that heareth these sayings of mine,
and doeth them not,
shall be likened unto a foolish man,
which built his house upon the sand:


040:007:027
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.


040:007:028
And it came to pass,
when Jesus had ended these sayings,
the people were astonished at his doctrine:


040:007:029
For he taught them as one having authority,
and not as the scribes.
