13 mEnter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 ||Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
15 nBeware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are oravening wolves. 16 pYe shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even 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 qEvery tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore pby their fruits ye shall know them.
21 rNot every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of imy Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not sprophesied in thy name? and in thy name thave cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: udepart from me, ye that work iniquity.
24 Therefore wwhosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto xa wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 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. 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a yfoolish man, zwhich built his house upon the sand: 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.
