The Wise in the Kingdom - Matthew 7

Judge not, that ye be not judged.  vs 1

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

Matthew 7:3  And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s  eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?  

Matthew 7:4 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? 

Matthew 7:5 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.  

Matthew 7:6 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.  

Matthew 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall  find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 

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

Matthew 7:9 Or what  man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give  him a stone? 

Matthew 7:10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a  serpent? 

Matthew 7:11 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? 

Matthew 7:12 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.  

Matthew 7:13 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: 

Matthew 7:14 Because strait is the  gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and  few there be that find it.  

Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in  sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.  

Matthew 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather  grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 

Matthew 7:17 Even so every  good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree  bringeth forth evil fruit. 

Matthew 7:18 A good tree cannot bring  forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good  fruit. 

Matthew 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is  hewn down, and cast into the fire. 

Matthew 7:20 Wherefore by  their fruits ye shall know them.  

Matthew 7:21 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. 

Matthew 7:22 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? 

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

Matthew 7:24 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: 

Matthew 7:25 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. 

Matthew 7:26 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: 

Matthew 7:27 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. 

Matthew 7:28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended  these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:   

Matthew 7:29 For he taught them as one having authority, and  not as the scribes.
