1 "Do not judge, so that you won't be judged. 1 "Do not judge, or you too will be judged.
2 For with the judgment you use, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. 2 For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
3 Why do you look at the speck in your brother's eye but don't notice the log in your own eye? 3 "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?
4 Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' and look, there's a log in your eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye?
5 Hypocrite! First take the log out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye. 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.
6 Don't give what is holy to dogs or toss your pearls before pigs, or they will trample them with their feet, turn, and tear you to pieces. 6 "Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces.

8 For everyone who asks receives, and the one who searches finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. 8 For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
9 What man among you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? 9 "Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone?

11 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! 11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!
12 Therefore, whatever you want others to do for you, do also the same for them-this is the Law and the Prophets. 12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.
13 "Enter through the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the road is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who go through it. 13 "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.
14 How narrow is the gate and difficult the road that leads to life, and few find it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.

16 You'll recognize them by their fruit. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?
17 In the same way, every good tree produces good fruit, but a bad tree produces bad fruit. 17 Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.
18 A good tree can't produce bad fruit; neither can a bad tree produce good fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.
19 Every tree that doesn't produce good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
20 So you'll recognize them by their fruit. 20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.
21 "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord!' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but [only] the one who does the will of My Father in heaven. 21 "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
22 On that day many will say to Me, 'Lord, Lord, didn't we prophesy in Your name, drive out demons in Your name, and do many miracles in Your name?' 22 Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?'
23 Then I will announce to them, 'I never knew you! Depart from Me, you lawbreakers! ' 23 Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'
24 "Therefore, everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them will be like a sensible man who built his house on the rock. 24 "Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
25 The rain fell, the rivers rose, and the winds blew and pounded that house. Yet it didn't collapse, because its foundation was on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.
26 But everyone who hears these words of Mine and doesn't act on them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.
27 The rain fell, the rivers rose, the winds blew and pounded that house, and it collapsed. And its collapse was great!" 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash."
