Mt 7:1
7:1 Judge {1} not, that ye be not judged.

 (1) We ought to find fault with one another, but we must beware
     we do not do it without cause, or to seem holier than
     others or because of hatred of others.

Mt 7:6
7:6 {2} Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast
    ye your {a} pearls before swine, lest they trample them
    under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

 (2) The stiff-necked and stubborn enemies of the gospel are
     unworthy to have it preached unto them.
     (a) A pearl is known among the Greeks for its oriental
         brightness: and a pearl was in ancient times greatly
         valued by the Latins: for a pearl that Cleopatra had
         was valued at two hundred and fifty thousand crowns:
         and the word is now borrowed from that, to signify the
         most precious heavenly doctrine.

Mt 7:7
7:7 {3} Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find;
    knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

 (3) Prayers are a sure refuge in all miseries.

Mt 7:12
7:12 {4} Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men
     should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the
     {b} law and the prophets.

 (4) An explanation of the meaning of the second table.
     (b) That is to say, The doctrine of the law and prophets.

Mt 7:13
7:13 {5} Enter 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:

 (5) The example of life must not be taken from the multitude.

Mt 7:14
7:14 Because {c} strait [is] the gate, and narrow [is] the way,
     which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

     (c) The way is straight and narrow: we must pass through
         this rough way and suffer, endure, be changed and so
         enter into life.

Mt 7:15
7:15 {6} Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's
     clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

 (6) False teachers must be taken heed of: and they are known by
     false doctrine and evil living.

Mt 7:21
7:21 {7} Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall
     enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the
     will of my Father which is in heaven.

 (7) Even the best gifts that exist are nothing without

Mt 7:22
7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not
     prophesied in thy {d} name?  and in thy name have cast out
     devils? and in thy name done many {e} wonderful works?

     (d) By "name" here is meant mighty working power of God,
         which every man witnesses that calls upon him.
     (e) Properly, powers: Now these excellent works which are
         done are called powers because of those things which
         they bring to pass, for by them we understand how
         mighty the power of God is.

Mt 7:23
7:23 And then will I profess unto them, {f} I never knew you:
     depart from me, {g} ye that work iniquity.

     (f) This is not of ignorance, but because he will cast them
     (g) You that are given to all kinds of wickedness, and seem
         to make an art of sin.

Mt 7:24
7:24 {8} Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and
     doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built
     his house upon a rock:

 (8) True godliness rests only upon Christ, and therefore always
     remains invincible.
