A Tree and Its Fruit

15 "Beware of the 1false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are 2ravenous wolves. 16 "You will a3know them by their fruits. bGrapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? 17 "So 4every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 "A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. 19 "5Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 "So then, you will cknow them 6by their fruits. 21 "7Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 22 "8Many will say to Me on 9that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many dmiracles?' 23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; 10DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.'
