Matthew 7:1–5

Do Not Judge Others

Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. For you will be treated as you treat others.* The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged.*

And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye* when you have a log in your own? How can you think of saying to your friend,* Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye? Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye.
