6. Concerning the Principles of the Kingdom People
in Dealing with Others
1 1aDo 2not judge, that you be not judged.
2 For 1with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged; and with what ameasure you measure, it shall be measured to you.
3 And why do you look at the asplinter which is in your brother's eye, but the beam in your eye you do not 1consider?
4 Or how can you say to your brother, Let me remove the splinter from your eye, and behold, the beam is in your eye?
5 1aHypocrite, first remove the beam from your eye, and then you will 2see clearly to remove the splinter from your brother's eye.
6 Do not give 1that which is aholy to the 2bdogs, neither cast your 1cpearls before the 2dhogs, lest they trample them with their feet, and turn and tear you.
7 1aAsk and it shall be given to you; bseek and you shall find; knock and it shall be opened to you.
8 For every one who 1asks receives, and he who 2seeks finds, and to him who 3knocks it shall be opened.
9 Or what man is there among you who, when his son asks him for a aloaf, will give him a stone?
10 Or also when he asks for a afish, will give him a serpent?
11 If you then being aevil know how to give good gifts to your children, 1how much more will your Father who is in the heavens give 2bgood things to those who ask Him!
12 Therefore all that you wish men would ado to you, so also you do to them; for this is the 1blaw and the prophets.
