Matthew

Judging Others  Mt.7.1-6 (Galilee)[ Mt.7.1-6 → ] - Lk.6.37-38, Lk.6.41-42

1'PASS NO JUDGEMENT, and you will not be judged. 2For as you judge others, so you will yourselves be judged, and whatever measure you deal out to others will be dealt back to you. 3Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye, with never a thought for the great plank in your own? 4Or how can you say to your brother, "Let me take the speck out of your eye", when all the time there is that plank in your own? 5You hypocrite! First take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's.

6'Do not give dogs what is holy; do not feed your pearls to pigs: they will only trample on them, and turn and tear you to pieces.

Ask, Seek, Knock  Mt.7.7-12 (Galilee)[ Mt.7.7-12 → ] - Lk.11.9-13

7'Ask, and you will receive, seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened. 8For everyone who asks receives, he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.

9'Is there a man among you who will offer his son a stone when he asks for bread, 10or a snake when he asks for fish? 11If you, then, bad as you are, know how to give your children what is good for them, how much more will your heavenly Father give good things to those who ask him!

12'Always treat others as you would like them to treat you: that is the Law and the prophets.

The Narrow Gate  Mt.7.13-14[ Mt.7.13-14 → ] - Lk.13.24

13'Enter by the narrow gate. The gate is wide that leads to perdition, there is plenty of room on the road, Some witnesses read: The road that leads to perdition is wide with plenty of room. and many go that way; 14but the gate that leads to life is small and the road is narrow, Some witnesses read: but the road that leads to life is small and narrow. and those who find it are few.

A Tree Known by Its Fruit  Mt.7.15-20[ Mt.7.15-20 → ] - Lk.6.43-44

15'Beware of false prophets, men who come to you dressed up as sheep while underneath they are savage as wolves. 16You will recognize them by the fruits they bear. Can grapes be picked from briars, or figs from thistles? 17In the same way, a good tree always yields is good fruit, and a poor tree bad fruit. 18A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, or a poor tree good fruit. 19And when a tree does not yield good fruit it is cut down and burnt. 20That is why I say you will recognize them by their fruits.

I Never Knew You  Mt.7.21-23 (Galilee)[ Mt.7.21-23 → ] - Lk.13.25-27

21'Not everyone who calls me "Lord, Lord" will enter the kingdom of Heaven, but only those who do the will of my heavenly Father. 22When that day comes, many will say to me, "Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, cast out devils in your name, and in your name perform many miracles?" 23Then I will tell them to their face, "I never knew you: out of my sight, you and your wicked ways!"

The Two Foundations  Mt.7.24-29 (Galilee)[ Mt.7.24-29 → ] - Lk.6.47-49

24'What then of the man who hears these words of mine and acts upon them? He is like a man who had the sense to build his house on rock. 25The rain came down, the floods rose, the wind blew, and beat upon that house; but it did not fall, because its foundations were on rock 26But what of the man who hears these words of mine and does not act upon them? He is like a man who was foolish enough to build his house on sand. 27The rain came down, the floods rose, the wind blew, and beat upon that house; down it fell with a great crash.'

28When Jesus had finished this discourse the people as were astounded at his teaching; 29unlike their own teachers he taught with a note of authority.
