The third part of the sermon on the mount.

[1] Judge not, that you may not be judged,
Nolite judicare, ut non judicemini.

[2] For with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged: and with what measure you mete, it shall be measured to you again.
In quo enim judicio judicaveritis, judicabimini : et in qua mensura mensi fueritis, remetietur vobis.

[3] And why seest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye; and seest not the beam that is in thy own eye?
Quid autem vides festucam in oculo fratris tui, et trabem in oculo tuo non vides?

[4] Or how sayest thou to thy brother: Let me cast the mote out of thy eye; and behold a beam is in thy own eye?
aut quomodo dicis fratris tuo : Sine ejiciam festucam de oculo tuo, et ecce trabs est in oculo tuo?

[5] Thou hypocrite, cast out first the beam in thy own eye, and then shalt thou see to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
Hypocrita, ejice primum trabem de oculo tuo, et tunc videbis ejicere festucam de oculo fratris tui.

[6] Give not that which is holy to dogs; neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest perhaps they trample them under their feet, and turning upon you, they tear you.
Nolite dare sanctum canibus : neque mittatis margaritas vestras ante porcos, ne forte conculcent eas pedibus suis, et conversi dirumpant vos.

[7] Ask, and it shall be given you: seek, and you shall find: knock, and it shall be opened to you.
Petite, et dabitur vobis : quaerite, et invenietis : pulsate, et aperietur vobis.

[8] For every one that asketh, receiveth: and he that seeketh, findeth: and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened.
Omnis enim qui petit, accipit : et qui quaerit, invenit : et pulsanti aperietur.

[9] Or what man is there among you, of whom if his son shall ask bread, will he reach him a stone?
Aut quis est ex vobis homo, quem si petierit filius suus panem, numquid lapidem porriget ei?

[10] Or if he shall ask him a fish, will he reach him a serpent?
aut si piscem petierit, numquid serpentem porriget ei?

[11] If you then being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children: how much more will your Father who is in heaven, give good things to them that ask him?
Si ergo vos, cum sitis mali, nostis bona data dare filiis vestris : quanto magis Pater vester, qui in caelis est, dabit bona petentibus se?

[12] All things therefore whatsoever you would that men should do to you, do you also to them. For this is the law and the prophets.
Omnia ergo quaecumque vultis ut faciant vobis homines, et vos facite illis. Haec est enim lex, et prophetae.

[13] Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat.
Intrate per angustam portam : quia lata porta, et spatiosa via est, quae ducit ad perditionem, et multi sunt qui intrant per eam.

[14] How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it!
Quam angusta porta, et arcta via est, quae ducit ad vitam : et pauci sunt qui inveniunt eam!

[15] Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Attendite a falsis prophetis, qui veniunt ad vos in vestimentis ovium, intrinsecus autem sunt lupi rapaces :

[16] By their fruits you shall know them. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
a fructibus eorum cognoscetis eos. Numquid colligunt de spinas uvas, aut de tribulis ficus?

[17] Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, and the evil tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
Sic omnis arbor bona fructus bonos facit : mala autem arbor malos fructus facit.

[18] A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can an evil tree bring forth good fruit.
Non potest arbor bona malos fructus facere : neque arbor mala bonos fructus facere.

[19] Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit, shall be cut down, and shall be cast into the fire.
Omnis arbor, quae non facit fructum bonum, excidetur, et in ignem mittetur.

[20] Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them.
Igitur ex fructibus eorum cognoscetis eos.

[21] Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Non omnis qui dicit mihi, Domine, Domine, intrabit in regnum caelorum : sed qui facit voluntatem Patris mei, qui in caelis est, ipse intrabit in regnum caelorum.

[22] Many will say to me in that day: Lord, Lord, have not we prophesied in thy name, and cast out devils in thy name, and done many miracles in thy name?
Multi dicent mihi in illa die : Domine, Domine, nonne in nomine tuo prophetavimus, et in nomine tuo daemonia ejecimus, et in nomine tuo virtutes multas fecimus?

[23] And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.
Et tunc confitebor illis : Quia numquam novi vos : discedite a me, qui operamini iniquitatem.

[24] Every one therefore that heareth these my words, and doth them, shall be likened to a wise man that built his house upon a rock,
Omnis ergo qui audit verba mea haec, et facit ea, assimilabitur viro sapienti, qui aedificavit domum suam supra petram,

[25] And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat upon that house, and it fell not, for it was founded on a rock.
et descendit pluvia, et venerunt flumina, et flaverunt venti, et irruerunt in domum illam, et non cecidit : fundata enim erat super petram.

[26] And every one that heareth these my words, and doth them not, shall be like a foolish man that built his house upon the sand,
Et omnis qui audit verba mea haec, et non facit ea, similis erit viro stulto, qui aedificavit domum suam super arenam :

[27] And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat upon that house, and it fell, and great was the fall thereof.
et descendit pluvia, et venerunt flumina, et flaverunt venti, et irruerunt in domum illam, et cecidit, et fuit ruina illius magna.

[28] And it came to pass when Jesus had fully ended these words, the people were in admiration at his doctrine.
Et factum est : cum consummasset Jesus verba haec, admirabantur turbae super doctrina ejus.

[29] For he was teaching them as one having power, and not as the scribes and Pharisees.
Erat enim docens eos sicut potestatem habens, et non sicut scribae eorum, et pharisaei.
