1. And now it came to pass that when Yeshua had spoken these words, he looked upon the twelve whom he had chosen, and said unto them, Remember the words which I have spoken. For behold, you are they whom I have chosen to minister unto this people.
  2. Therefore, I say unto you, take no thought for your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink, nor yet for your body, what you shall put on. Is not the life more than meat? And the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air, for they sow not, neither do they reap nor gather into barns; yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they?143
  3. Which of you, by taking thought, can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take you thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow. They labor not, neither do they spin; and yet I say unto you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if Elohim so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, even so will he clothe you if you are not of little faith. Therefore, take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? Or, What shall we drink? Or, With what shall we be clothed? For your Heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things. But seek you first the kingdom of Elohim and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.
  4. Take, therefore, no thought for tomorrow, for tomorrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient is the day unto the evil thereof.
  5. And now it came to pass that when Yeshua had spoken these words, he turned again to the multitude and did open his mouth unto them again, saying, Truly, truly I say unto you, judge not, that you be not judged;144 for with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged, and what standard you apply, it shall be applied to you again.145
  6. And why do you behold the sliver that is in your brother’s eye, but consider not the beam that is in your own eye? Or how will you say to your brother, Let me pull the sliver out of your eye, and behold, a beam is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of your own eye, and then shall you see clearly to cast out the sliver out of your brother’s eye. Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast your pearls before swine, for fear that they trample them under their feet, and turn again, and tear you.
  7. Ask146 and it shall be given unto you, seek and you shall find, knock147 and it shall be opened unto you; for everyone that asks, receives, and he that seeks, finds, and to him that knocks, it shall be opened.
  8. Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father who is in Heaven give good things to them that ask him?148 Therefore, all things whatsoever you would that men should do to you, do you even so to them,149 for this is the Torah and the prophets.
  9. Enter in at the strait gate,150 for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many there be who go in at that gate; because strait is the gate and narrow is the way which leads unto life, and few there be that find it.
  10. Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing,151 but inwardly they are ravening wolves. You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns? Or figs of thistles? Even so, every good tree brings forth good fruit, but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that brings not forth good fruit is cut down and cast into the fire. Wherefore, by their fruits you shall know them.
  11. Not everyone that says unto me, Adon, Adon, shall enter into the kingdom of Heaven, but he that does the will of my Father who is in Heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Adon, Adon, have we not prophesied in your name? And in your name have cast out demons? And in your name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you. Depart from me, you that work iniquity.152
  12. Therefore, whoever hears these sayings of mine and does them, I will compare him to a wise man who built his house upon a rock;153 and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house, and it fell not, for it was founded upon a rock. And everyone that hears these sayings of mine and does them not shall be compared to a foolish man who built his house upon the sand; and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.
