New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 "Stop judging others, and you will not be judged. 1 "Do not judge, or you too will be judged.
2 For others will treat you as you treat them. Whatever measure you use in judging others, it will be used to measure how you are judged. 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 And why worry about a speck in your friend's eye when you have a log in your own? 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 How 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? 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 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." 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.
