Matthew 7:1-29

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, 2 ye shall be judged, and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote in thy brother's eye, but observest not the beam in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote from thine eye, and behold a beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye, and then shalt thou see clearly to cast the mote out of thy brother's eye. 6 Give not that which is holy to dogs, neither cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turning, rend you. 7 Ask and it shall be given you, seek and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened to you. 8 For every one that asketh, receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened. 9 What man is there of you, who if his son ask bread, will give him a stone? 10 And if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? 11 If ye then being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven, give good things to them that ask him? 12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them; for this is the law and the prophets. 13 Enter ye in thro' the straight gate: for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are that go in thro' it: 14 Because straight is the gate and narrow is the way that leadeth to life, and few there are that find it. 15 But beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheeps clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 By their fruits ye shall know them. Do men gather grapes from thorns, or figs from thistles? 17 So every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit, is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21 Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven, but he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name, and in thy name have cast out devils, and in thy name have done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I declare to them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. 24 Therefore whosoever heareth these my sayings, and doth them, I will liken him to a wise man, who built his house on a rock: And the rain descended, 25 and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it fell not; for it was founded on a rock. 26 But every one that heareth these my sayings, and doth them not, shall be likened to a foolish man, who built his house on the sand. 27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat on that house; and it fell, and great was the fall of it. 28 And when Jesus had ended these sayings, the multitudes were astonished at his teaching, For he taught them as one having authority, 29 and not as the scribes.

Matthew 15:1-39

1 Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees who were of Jerusalem, saying, 2 Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? 3 For they wash not their hands when they eat bread. But he answering said, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God thro' your tradition? 4 For God commanded, Honour thy father and mother: and He that revileth father or mother, let him die the death. 5 But ye say, Whosoever shall say to his father or mother, It is a gift, by whatsoever thou mightest have been profited by me: 6 Let him not honour his father or his mother. Thus have ye made void the command of God thro' your tradition. 7 Ye hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophecy of you, saying, 8 This people draweth nigh to me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9 But in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. 10 And calling the multitudes he said to them, Hear and understand. 11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth the man, but what cometh out of the mouth, this defileth the man. 12 Then came his disciples and said to him, Knowest thou that the Pharisees, hearing this saying, were offended? 13 He answered and said, Every plant which my heavenly Father hath not planted shall be rooted up. 14 Let them alone: they are blind leaders of the blind: but if the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a ditch. 15 Then answered Peter and said to him, Declare to us this parable. 16 And Jesus said, Are ye also yet without understanding? 17 Do not ye yet understand, that whatever entereth into the mouth, goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the vault? 18 But those things which proceed out of the mouth, come out of the heart, and they defile the man. 19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, railings. 20 These are the things which defile a man; but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man. 21 And Jesus going thence, retired to the coast of Tyre and Sidon. 22 And behold a woman of Canaan, of those coasts, came and cried to him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David: my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. 23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away, for she crieth after us. 24 But he answering said, I am not sent but to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 25 Then came she and worshiped him, saying, Lord, help me. 26 But he answering said, It is not right, to take the children's bread and cast it to the dogs. 27 And she said, True, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their master's table. 28 And Jesus answering said to her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee as thou wilt. And her daughter was healed from that hour. 29 And Jesus passing thence, came nigh the sea of Galilee; and going up into a mountain, he sat down there. 30 And great multitudes came to him, having with them the lame, blind, dumb, disabled, and many others; and cast them at the feet of Jesus, and he healed them: 31 So that the multitudes wondered, seeing the dumb to speak, the disabled whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel. 32 Then Jesus calling his disciples to him said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I am not willing to send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way. 33 And his disciples say to him, Whence should we have so much bread in a wilderness, as to satisfy so great a multitude? 34 And Jesus saith to them, How many loaves have you? 35 They said, Seven, and a few small fishes. And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass. 36 And taking the seven loaves and the fishes, he gave thanks and brake them and gave to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. 37 And they all ate and were satisfied, and they took up of the fragments that remained seven baskets full. 38 And they that had eaten were four thousand men, besides women and children. 39 And having sent away the multitude, he took ship again, and came into the coasts of Magdala.

1 Corinthians 10:23

23 All things are lawful for me; but all things are not expedient; all things are lawful for me; but all things edify not.

Romans 14:16

16 Therefore let not your good be evil spoken of.

Luke 6:37

37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged; condemn not, and ye shall not be condemed; forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

John 4:23-24

23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for the Father seeketh such worshipers. 24 God is a spirit, and they that worship him, must worship him in spirit and in truth.

1 Timothy 2:1-15

1 I exhort therefore, that first of all supplications, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings be made for all men: 2 For kings and all that are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour, 4 Who willeth all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God, one mediator also between God and men, 6 the man Christ Jesus, Who gave himself a ransom for all, 7 to be testified of in due season, Whereunto I am ordained a preacher and an apostle, (I speak the truth, I lie not) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth. 8 I will therefore that men pray in every place, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting: 9 Likewise that women adorn themselves in decent apparel, with modesty and sobriety, not with curled hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly raiment, 10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. 11 Let a woman learn in silence with all subjection. 12 For I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. 13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived; but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. 15 Yet she shall be saved in child-bearing, if they continue in faith, and love, and holiness, with sobriety.

Colossians 3:12

12 Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, long-suffering:

Philippians 4:5

5 Let your gentleness be known to all men; the Lord is at hand.

1 Corinthians 14:40

40 Let all things be done decently and in order.

Colossians 4:5-6

5 Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. 6 Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every one.
