1 "DO not judge, so that you may not be judged.
2 For with whatever judgment you judge you will be judged, and with whatever measure you measure you will be measured.
3 Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, while you do not perceive the beam in your own eye?
4 Or how will you say to your brother, 'Let me get out the speck from your eye,' when there is a beam in your own eye?
5 You hypocrite, first get the beam out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to get the speck out of your brother's eye.
6 "Do not give what is holy to the dogs, nor east your pearls before swine, for they may trample them under their feet and turn and tear you.
7 "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened.
8 For every one who asks obtains, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks the door is opened.
9 Is there any man of you who if his son asks him for bread will give him a stone?
10 Or if he asks for a fish will give him a serpent?
11 If you, though evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good things to those who ask him.
12 "All things that you wish men to do for you, do yourselves for them; for this is the Law and the Prophets.
13 "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide and spacious is the road that leads away to ruin, and many there are who go through it;
14 but narrow is the gate and contracted is the road that leads into life, and few there are who find it.
15 "Beware of false prophets, such as come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.
16 From their fruits you will know them. Are grapes gathered from thorns or figs from thistles?
17 Just so every good tree yields fine fruit, but a worthless tree yields bad fruit.
18 It is not possible for a good tree to yield had fruit nor for a worthless tree to yield fine fruit.
19 Every tree that does not yield fine fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
20 So then, from their fruits you will know them.
21 "Not every one who says to me, 'Master, Master,' will enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me on that day, 'Master, Master, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name east out demons, and in your name do many miracles?'
23 And then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Depart from me, you who work lawlessness.'
24 "Every one, therefore, who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house upon the rock;
25 and the rain descended and the rivers rose and the winds blew, and they beat upon that house; but it fell not, for it had been founded on the rock.
26 And every one who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house upon the sand.
27 And the rain descended and the rivers rose and the winds blew, and they struck upon that house and it fell, and great was the ruin of it."
28 When Jesus ended these words, the crowds were astonished at his teaching.
29 For he taught them like one who had authority, and not as their scribes taught.
