Do Not Judge


1 “Judge1 anot, that you be not judged.
2 “For with what 1judgment you judge, you will be judged; aand with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.
3 a“And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye?
4 “Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye?
5 “Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
6 a“Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.

Keep Asking, Seeking, Knocking

7 a“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
8 “For aeveryone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
9 a“Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone?
10 “Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent?
11 “If you then, abeing evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!
12 “Therefore, awhatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for bthis is the Law and the Prophets.

The Narrow Way

13 a“Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it.
14 1“Because narrow is the gate and

page 853

2difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

You Will Know Them by Their Fruits

15 a“Beware of false prophets, bwho come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.
16 a“You will know them by their fruits. bDo men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?
17 “Even so, aevery good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit.
18 “A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.
19 a“Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.
20 “Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

I Never Knew You

21 “Not everyone who says to Me, a‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who bdoes the will of My Father in heaven.
22 “Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we anot prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’
23 “And athen I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; bdepart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

Build on the Rock

24 “Therefore awhoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock:
25 “and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.
26 “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand:
27 “and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”
28 And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that athe people were astonished at His teaching,
29 afor He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Jesus Cleanses a Leper


1 When He had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him.
2 aAnd behold, a leper came and bworshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing,You can make me clean.”
3 Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy awas cleansed.

Jesus Heals a Centurion’s Servant

5 aNow when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a bcenturion came to Him, pleading with Him,
6 saying, “Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented.”
7 And Jesus said to him, “I will come and heal him.”
8 The centurion answered and said, “Lord, aI am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only bspeak a word, and my servant will be healed.
9 “For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and to another, ‘Come,’ and he comes; and to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”
10 When Jesus heard it, He marveled, and said to those who followed, “Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!
11 “And I say to you that amany will come from east and west, and sit down with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven.
12 “But athe sons of the kingdom bwill be cast out into outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you.” And his servant was healed that same hour.

Peter’s Mother-in-Law Healed

14 aNow when Jesus had come into Peter’s house, He saw bhis wife’s mother lying sick with a fever.
15 So He touched her hand, and the fever left her. And she arose and served 1them.

Many Healed in the Evening

16 aWhen evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick,
17 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: a“He Himself took our infirmities And bore our sicknesses.”

The Cost of Discipleship

18 And when Jesus saw great multitudes about Him, He gave a command to depart to the other side.
19 aThen a certain scribe came and said to Him, “Teacher, I will follow You wherever You go.”

page 854


20 And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.”
21 aThen another of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, blet me first go and bury my father.”
22 But Jesus said to him, “Follow Me, and let the dead bury their own dead.”

Wind and Wave Obey Jesus

23 Now when He got into a boat, His disciples followed Him.
24 aAnd suddenly a great tempest arose on the sea, so that the boat was covered with the waves. But He was asleep.
25 Then His disciples came to Him and awoke Him, saying, “Lord, save us! We are perishing!”
26 But He said to them, “Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?” Then aHe arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm.
27 So the men marveled, saying, 1“Who can this be, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?”

Two Demon-Possessed Men Healed

28 aWhen He had come to the other side, to the country of the 1Gergesenes, there met Him two demon-possessed men, coming out of the tombs, exceedingly fierce, so that no one could pass that way.
29 And suddenly they cried out, saying, “What have we to do with You, Jesus,You Son of God? Have You come here to torment us before the time?”
30 Now a good way off from them there was a herd of many swine feeding.
31 So the demons begged Him, saying, “If You cast us out, 1permit us to go away into the herd of swine.”
32 And He said to them, “Go.” So when they had come out, they went into the herd of swine. And suddenly the whole herd of swine ran violently down the steep place into the sea, and perished in the water.
33 Then those who kept them fled; and they went away into the city and told everything, including what had happened to the demon-possessed men.
34 And behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus. And when they saw Him, athey begged Him to depart from their region.

The Blessedness of Dwelling in the House of God

To the Chief Musician. aOn1 an instrument of Gath. A Psalm of the sons of Korah.

1 HOW alovely 1is Your tabernacle, O LORD of hosts!
2 aMy soul longs, yes, even faints For the courts of the LORD; My heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.

3 Even the sparrow has found a home, And the swallow a nest for herself, Where she may lay her young— Even Your altars, O LORD of hosts, My King and my God.
4 Blessed are those who dwell in Your ahouse; They will still be praising You. Selah

5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, Whose heart is set on pilgrimage.
