Matthew 7:24-25

Hearing and Doing

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

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

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

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.

tn Grk “the rivers.”
