Matthew 7:15-23

A Tree and Its Fruit

16 "You will 3know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they?
19 "5Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
20 "So then, you will know 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 miracles?'
23 "And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; 10DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.'
