1“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. 2For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
3“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
6“Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.
Ask, Seek, Knock
7“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
9“Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! 12So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.
The Narrow and Wide Gates
13“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
True and False Prophets
15“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.
True and False Disciples
21“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ 23Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
The Wise and Foolish Builders
24“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
28When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, 29because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.
Za Kuweruza Ena
1“Musaweruze ena, kuti inunso mungadzaweruzidwe. 2Pakuti momwe inu muweruzira ena, inunso mudzaweruzidwa chimodzimodzi, muyeso umene muyesera ena inunso mudzayesedwa ndi womwewo.
3“Chifukwa chiyani iwe uyangʼana kachitsotso ka mʼdiso la mʼbale wako koma susamalira chimtengo chili mʼdiso mwako? 4Kodi unganene bwanji kwa mʼbale wako kuti, ‘Ndikuchotse kachitsotso mʼdiso mwako,’ pamene nthawi zonse chimtengo uli nacho mʼdiso mwako? 5Wachiphamaso iwe! Yamba wachotsa chimtengo chili mʼdiso mwako ndipo pamenepo udzatha kuona bwino ndi kuchotsa kachitsotso kali mʼdiso mwa mʼbale wako.
6“Musapatse agalu zinthu zopatulika; kapena musaponyere nkhumba ngale zanu. Pakuti ngati mutero, zidzaziponda ndipo pomwepo zidzakutembenukirani ndi kukudulani nthulinthuli.
Pemphani, Funafunani, Gogodani
7“Pemphani ndipo mudzapatsidwa; funafunani ndipo mudzapeza; gogodani ndipo adzakutsekulirani. 8Pakuti wopempha aliyense amalandira; ndi wofuna amapeza; ndipo iye amene agogoda, adzamutsekulira.
9“Ndani mwa inu, mwana wake akamupempha buledi amamupatsa mwala? 10Kapena ngati mwana apempha nsomba, kodi amamupatsa njoka? 11Tsono ngati inu woyipitsitsa mumadziwa kupatsa ana anu mphatso zabwino, nanga Atate anu akumwamba sadzapereka mphatso zabwino kwa iwo amene amupempha? 12Nʼchifukwa chake zinthu zilizonse mukafuna kuti anthu akuchitireni, yambani ndinu kuwachitira, pakuti izi ndi zimene malamulo ndi aneneri amaphunzitsa.
Zipata Ziwiri ndi Njira Ziwiri
13“Lowani pa chipata chopapatiza. Pakuti chipata cholowera kuchiwonongeko nʼchachikulu ndipo msewu wake ndi waukulunso. Ndipo anthu ambiri amalowera pamenepo. 14Koma chipata ndi chopapatiza ndi msewu ndi waungʼono umene utsogolera anthu ku moyo wosatha ndipo ndi owerengeka okha amene ayipeza njirayo.
Aneneri Owona ndi Onyenga
15“Chenjerani nawo aneneri onyenga. Amabwera kwa inu atavala zikopa zankhosa, koma mʼkati mwawo ali mimbulu yolusa. 16Mudzawazindikira iwo ndi zipatso zawo. Kodi anthu amathyola mpesa pa mtengo wa minga, kapena nkhuyu pa nthula? 17Chimodzimodzinso mtengo wabwino umabala chipatso chabwino, koma mtengo woyipa umabala chipatso choyipa. 18Mtengo wabwino sungabale chipatso choyipa, ndi mtengo woyipa sungabale chipatso chabwino. 19Mtengo uliwonse umene subala chipatso chabwino umadulidwa ndi kuponyedwa pa moto. 20Momwemonso, ndi zipatso zawo iwo mudzawazindikira.
Ophunzira Owona ndi Onyenga
21“Si munthu aliyense amene amanena kwa Ine, ‘Ambuye, Ambuye,’ adzalowe mu ufumu wakumwamba, koma ndi yekhayo amene amachita chifuniro cha Atate anga amene ali kumwamba. 22Ambiri adzati kwa Ine pa tsikulo, ‘Ambuye, Ambuye, kodi sitinkanenera mʼdzina lanu ndi mʼdzina lanunso tinkatulutsa ziwanda ndi kuchita zodabwitsa zambiri?’ 23Pamenepo ndidzawawuza momveka bwino kuti, ‘Sindinakudziweni inu. Chokani kwa Ine, inu ochita zoyipa!’
Womanga Nyumba Wanzeru ndi Wopusa
24“Nʼchifukwa chake aliyense amene amva mawu anga ndi kuwachita akufanana ndi munthu wanzeru amene anamanga nyumba yake pa thanthwe. 25Mvula inagwa, mitsinje inadzaza, ndi mphepo zinawomba pa nyumbayo; koma sinagwe, chifukwa maziko ake anali pa thanthwe. 26Koma aliyense amene amva mawu angawa ndi kusawachita ali ngati munthu wopusa amene anamanga nyumba yake pa mchenga. 27Mvula inagwa, mitsinje inadzaza, ndi mphepo zinawomba pa nyumbayo, ndipo inagwa ndipo kugwa kwake kunali kwakukulu.”
28Yesu atamaliza kunena zonsezi, magulu a anthu anadabwa ndi chiphunzitso chake, 29chifukwa anaphunzitsa ngati amene anali ndi ulamuliro osati ngati aphunzitsi amalamulo.
