Matthew 7:1-29

1 Criticise not, that you may not be criticised. 2 For with what criticism you criticise, you will be criticised: and with what measure you measure, it will be measured unto you. 3 But why do you see the mote which is in the eye of your brother, and do not recognize the beam which is in your own eye? 4 Or how will you say to your brother, Permit me, I will cast out the mote from your eye; and behold, there is a beam in your own eye? 5 O hypocrite, first cast out the beam from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to cast out the mote from the eye of your brother. 6 Give not that which is holy to the dogs, neither cast your pearls before the swine, lest they may trample them under their feet, and having turned round tear you to pieces. 7 Ask, and it shall be given unto you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. 8 For every one asking receives; and the one seeking finds; and to the one knocking it shall be opened. 9 What man is there of you, whom, if his son shall ask bread, he will give him a stone? 10 And if he may ask a fish, whether will he give him a serpent? 11 Therefore if you, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more shall your Father who is in the heavens give good things to them that ask Him? 12 Therefore all things whatsoever you may wish that the people may do unto you, do ye even so unto them: for this is the law and the prophets. 13 Enter ye in through the narrow gate: because wide is the gate and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there are, who are going in through it. 14 Because narrow is the gate, and contracted the way, that leadeth into life, and few there are who find it. 15 But beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are rapacious wolves. 16 You shall know them by their fruits. Do the people gather the grape-bunches from thorns, or figs from thistles? 17 So every good tree produces good fruits; and a corrupt tree produces evil fruits. 18 A good tree is not able to produce evil fruits, neither is a corrupt tree able to produce beautiful fruits. 19 Every tree not producing beautiful fruit is cut down and cast into the fire. 20 Therefore you shall know them perfectly by their fruits. 21 Not every one saying to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of the heavens; but he that doeth the will of my Father who is in the heavens. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name, and in thy name cast out demons, and in thy name done many mighty works? 23 Then I will confess unto them that I never knew you: depart from me, ye who work iniquity. 24 Then every one who hears these words of mine, and does them, I will liken him unto a wise man, who built his house upon the rock. 25 And the rain came down, and the rivers came, and the winds blew, and fell against that house; and it did not fall; for it was founded upon the rock. 26 And every one hearing these words of mine, and doing them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, who built his house upon the sand. 27 And the rain came down, and the rivers came, and the winds blew, and beat against that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. 28 And it came to pass when Jesus finished these discourses, the multitudes were astonished at His teaching: 29 for He was teaching them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Matthew 15:1-39

1 Then the scribes and Pharisees, who are from Jerusalem, come to Jesus, saying, 2 Wherefore do thy disciples transgress the traditions of the elders? for they do not wash their hands when they eat bread. 3 And responding He said to them; Wherefore do you also transgress the commandment of God because of your tradition? 4 For God commanded saying, Honor thy father and mother: and, He that speaketh evil of father or mother, let him die with death. 5 But you say, Whosoever may say to father or mother, It is a gift, whatsoever you may be profited by me; and he shall no longer honor his father or his mother. 6 You made void the commandment of God by your tradition. 7 Ye hypocrites, beautifully did Isaiah prophesy concerning you, saying, 8 This people honor me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. 9 But in vain they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men. 10 And calling the multitude to Him, He said to them, Hear and understand: 11 That if which cometh into the mouth does not defile the man; but that which cometh out from the mouth, that defiles the man. 12 Then His disciples having come to Him say, Do you not know that the Pharisees hearing your word, were offended? 13 And He responding said, Every plant which my heavenly Father did not plant, shall be rooted up. 14 Let them alone: the blind are leaders of the blind: if the blind may lead the blind, both will fall into the ditch. 15 Peter responding said to Him, Explain unto us the parable. 16 And Jesus said, Are you indeed still without understanding? 17 Do you know that everything entering into the mouth goes into the stomach, and is cast out into excrement? 18 But those things going out from the mouth come forth from the heart; and these pollute the man. 19 For out of the heart proceed evil reasonings, murders, fornications, adulteries, thefts, false testimonies, blasphemies. 20 These are the things which defile the man: but to eat bread with unwashed hands does not defile the man. 21 And Jesus having come out thence, departed into the regions of Tyre and Sidon. 22 And behold, a Canaanitish woman having come out from those coasts, cried unto Him saying, Have mercy on me, Lord, thou son of David; my daughter is terribly demonized. 23 And He responded to her not a word; and His disciples, having come to Him, asked Him, saying, Send her away; because she cries after us. 24 And He responding said, I am not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 25 And having come she continued to worship Him, saying, Lord, assist me. 26 He responding said, It is not good to take the children's bread and cast it to the little dogs. 27 And she said, Yea, Lord: for the little dogs eat of the crumbs falling from their master's table. 28 Then Jesus responding said to her, O woman, great is thy faith; let it be done unto thee as thou dost wish. And her daughter was healed from that hour. 29 And Jesus having departed thence, came to the Sea of Galilee; and having gone up into the mountain, He was sitting there. 30 And many multitudes came to Him, having with them the lame, the blind, the deaf, the maimed, and many others, and laid them down at the feet of Jesus; and He healed them: 31 so that the multitudes were astonished, seeing the dumb speaking, the maimed whole, the lame walking about, and the blind seeing: and they glorified the God of Israel. 32 And Jesus calling His disciples to Him, said, I sympathize with the multitude, because already three days abide unto me, and they have nothing which they may eat; I do not wish to send them away fasting, lest they may faint on the road. 33 And His disciples say to Him, Whence is there to us so much bread in the wilderness, as to feed so great a multitude? 34 And Jesus says to them; How much bread have ye? And they said, Seven loaves and a few fishes. 35 He having commanded the multitudes to sit down upon the ground, 36 He took the seven loaves and the fishes; having given thanks, He broke them, and gave to His disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. 37 And they all ate, and were filled: and they took up the residue of fragments, seven baskets full. 38 And those eating were about tour thousand men, besides women and children. 39 And having sent away the multitudes, He went into a ship and came into the coasts of Magdala.

1 Corinthians 10:23

23 All things are lawful; but all things are not profitable. All things are lawful; but all things do not edify.

Luke 6:37

37 And criticise not, and you can not be criticised. Condemn not, and you can not be condemned.

John 4:23-24

23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such worshiping Him. 24 God is a Spirit, and it behooveth those who worship Him to worship in spirit and in truth.

Romans 14:16

16 Let not your good be blasphemed.

1 Timothy 2:1-15

1 Moreover, first of all things, I exhort you, that prayers, supplications, intercessions, thanksgivings, be made in behalf of all men; 2 for kings and all who are in authority; in order that we may lead a peaceable and quiet life in all godliness and honesty. 3 This is beautiful and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; 4 who wishes all men to be saved, and to come to the perfect knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God, and there is also one mediator of God and men, the man, Christ Jesus, 6 the one having given himself a ransom for all, a testimony in due time; 7 in which I have been placed a herald and an apostle I speak the truth, I lie not, a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and in truth. 8 Therefore I wish that men in every place would all pray, holding up holy hands, without wrath and doubting: 9 likewise that the women adorn themselves in comely apparel, with modesty and prudence; not with braided hair, and gold or pearls or costly garments; 10 but whatsoever becomes women professing godliness, through good works. 11 Let a woman learn in silence in all submission; 12 but I do not permit a woman to dictate or usurp authority over her husband, but to be in silence. 13 For Adam was first created, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression; 15 but she shall be saved through child-bearing, if they may abide in faith and in divine love and in sanctification with prudence.

Colossians 3:12

12 Therefore, as elect of God, holy and beloved, put on affections of mercy, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering;

Philippians 4:5

5 Let your clemency be made known to all men; the Lord is nigh.

1 Corinthians 14:40

40 but let all things be done decently and in order.

Colossians 4:5-6

5 Walk about in wisdom toward the aliens, buying in the opportunity. 6 Let your word be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how it behooves you to answer each one.
