Matthew 7:16-20

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 16 You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?

 17 Even so, every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit.

 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. ["Either make the tree good, and its fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and its fruit corrupt; for the tree is known by its fruit." Mat 12:33. From the Word of the Lord within: "A tree that is holy is a good one."]

 19 Every tree that does not bring forth good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.

 20 Therefore by their fruits you shall know them.
