1"Stop judging others, and you will not be judged. 2For others will treat you as you treat them. a Whatever measure you use in judging others, it will be used to measure how you are judged. 3And why worry about a speck in your friend's eye b when you have a log in your own? 4How can you think of saying, 'Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,' when you can't see past the log in your own eye? 5Hypocrite! First get rid of the log from your own eye; then perhaps you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend's eye."
6"Don't give what is holy to unholy people. c Don't give pearls to swine! They will trample the pearls, then turn and attack you."
