Matthew 7:24-25

Hearing and Doing

7:24 “Everyone 1  who hears these words of mine and does them is like 2  a wise man 3  who built his house on rock. 7:25 The rain fell, the flood 4  came, and the winds beat against that house, but it did not collapse because it had been founded on rock.

1 tn Grk “Therefore everyone.” Here οὖν (oun) has not been translated.

2 tn Grk “will be like.” The same phrase occurs in v. 26.

3 tn Here and in v. 26 the Greek text reads ἀνήρ (anhr), while the parallel account in Luke 6:47-49 uses ἄνθρωπος (anqrwpo") in vv. 48 and 49.

4 tn Grk “the rivers.”
