7 “Do not [a]judge, so that you will not be judged.2 For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and [b]by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you.3 Why do you look at the [c]speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?4 Or how [d]can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the [e]speck out of your eye,’ and look, the log is in your own eye?5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the [f]speck out of your brother’s eye!
6 “Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before pigs, or they will trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.
Prayer and the Golden Rule
7 “[g]Ask, and it will be given to you; [h]seek, and you will find; [i]knock, and it will be opened to you.8 For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.9 Or what person is there among you [j]who, when his son asks for a loaf of bread, [k]will give him a stone?10 Or [l]if he asks for a fish, he will not give him a snake, will he?11 So if you, despite being [m]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 “In everything, therefore, [n]treat people the same way you want [o]them to treat you, for this is the Law and the Prophets.
The Narrow and Wide Gates
13 “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it.
Matthew 7:1I.e., make a habit of judging or have a judgmental attitude
