Judging Others : - Luke 6:37, 38,41,42
7:1 Judge not, that you be not judged.
7:2 For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.
7:3 And why do you look at the speck in your brother's eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye?
7:4 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?
7:5 Tzevua (Hypocrite)! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.
7:6 Give not that which is Kadosh to the kelevim (dogs), neither cast you your pearls before chazirim (swine, pigs), lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
Seeking YHWH Elohim (אלהים)'s help : Luke 11:9 - 13
7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you:
7:8 For every one that asks receives; and he that seek finds; and to him that knock it shall be opened.
7:9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask lechem, will he give him a stone?
7:10 Or if he ask a dag (fish), will he give him a serpent?
7:11 If you then, being evil, know how to give tov gifts to your children, how much more shall your Father which is in shamayim give tov things to them that ask him?
7:12 Therefore all things whatsoever you would that men should do to you, do you even so to them: for this is the Torah and Neviim.
The Narrow way : Luke 13:24
7:13 Enter you in at the shaar hatzarut (narrow): for wide [is] the shaar, and broad [is] the derek, that leads to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
7:14 Because tzar [is] the shaar, and narrow [is] the derek, which leadeth to chayim, and few there be that find it.
Distinguish the good or evil testimony and belief: Luke 6:43,44
People are like fruit / trees
7:15 Beware of Neviim ha sheker (false prophets), which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
7:16 Ye shall know them by their perot (fruits). Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
7:17 Even so every etz tov brings forth pri (fruit) tov; but a etz nishchat (corrupt) brings forth pri ra' ah.
7:18 A etz tov cannot bring forth pri ra'ah (evil), neither [can] a etz nishchat (corrupt) bring forth pri tov.
7:19 Every etz (tree) that brings not forth pri (fruit) tov is karate (cut off) , and cast into ha eish (fire).
7:20 Wherefore by their perot (fruits) you shall know them.
7:21 Not every one that said to me, Master, Master, shall enter into the Malkut of shamayim; but he that does the will of my Abba which is in Shamayim.
7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Thy NAME? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works?
7:23 And then will I profess to them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that practice lawlessness.
7:24 Therefore whosoever hears these sayings of mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
7:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
7:26 And every one that hears these sayings of mine, and does them not, shall be likened to a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
7:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
7:28 And it came to pass, when Yehoshua (יהושע) had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his teaching:
7:29 For he taught them as [one] having authority, and not as the Sophrim (scribes, teachers).
