Matthew 7:24-27

Context
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. 7:26 Everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 7:27 The rain fell, the flood came, and the winds beat against that house, and it collapsed; it was utterly destroyed!” 5 

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.

4 tn Grk “the rivers.”

5 tn Grk “and great was its fall.”
