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
