Psalms 1:1-3 CEVUK; God blesses those people who refuse evil advice and won't follow sinners or join in sneering at God. Instead, the Law of the LORD makes them happy, and they think about it day and night. They are like trees growing beside a stream, trees that produce fruit in season and always have leaves. Those people succeed in everything they do.

Matthew 7:1-29 CEVUK; Don't condemn others, and God won't condemn you. God will be as hard on you as you are on others! He will treat you exactly as you treat them. You can see the speck in your friend's eye, but you don't notice the log in your own eye. How can you say, “My friend, let me take the speck out of your eye,” when you don't see the log in your own eye? You're nothing but show-offs! First, take the log out of your own eye. Then you can see how to take the speck out of your friend's eye. Don't give to dogs what belongs to God. They will only turn and attack you. Don't throw pearls down in front of pigs. They will trample all over them. Ask, and you will receive. Search, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened for you. Everyone who asks will receive. Everyone who searches will find. And the door will be opened for everyone who knocks. Would any of you give your hungry child a stone, if the child asked for some bread? Would you give your child a snake if the child asked for a fish? As bad as you are, you still know how to give good gifts to your children. But your heavenly Father is even more ready to give good things to people who ask. Treat others as you want them to treat you. This is what the Law and the Prophets are all about. Go in through the narrow gate. The gate to destruction is wide, and the road that leads there is easy to follow. A lot of people go through that gate. But the gate to life is very narrow. The road that leads there is so hard to follow that only a few people find it. Watch out for false prophets! They dress up like sheep, but inside they are wolves who have come to attack you. You can tell what they are by what they do. No one picks grapes or figs from thorn bushes. A good tree produces good fruit, and a bad tree produces bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot produce good fruit. Every tree that produces bad fruit will be chopped down and burnt. You can tell who the false prophets are by their deeds. Not everyone who calls me their Lord will get into the kingdom of heaven. Only the ones who obey my Father in heaven will get in. On the day of judgment many will call me their Lord. They will say, “We preached in your name, and in your name we forced out demons and performed many miracles.” But I will tell them, “I will have nothing to do with you! Get out of my sight, you evil people!” Anyone who hears and obeys these teachings of mine is like a wise person who built a house on solid rock. Rain poured down, rivers flooded, and winds beat against that house. But it did not fall, because it was built on solid rock. Anyone who hears my teachings and doesn't obey them is like a foolish person who built a house on sand. The rain poured down, the rivers flooded, and the winds blew and beat against that house. Finally, it fell with a crash. When Jesus finished speaking, the crowds were surprised at his teaching. He taught them like someone with authority, and not like their teachers of the Law of Moses.

Don't condemn others, and God won't condemn you. God will be as hard on you as you are on others! He will treat you exactly as you treat them. You …

Psalms 13:1-6 CEVUK; How much longer, LORD , will you forget about me? Will it be for ever? How long will you hide? How long must I be confused and miserable all day? How long will my enemies keep beating me down? Please listen, LORD God, and answer my prayers. Make my eyes sparkle again, or else I will fall into the sleep of death. My enemies will say, “Now we've won!” They will be greatly pleased when I am defeated. I trust your love, and I feel like celebrating because you rescued me. You have been good to me, LORD , and I will sing about you.

Old Testament

Psalms 12:1-8 CEVUK; Please help me, LORD ! All who were faithful and all who were loyal have disappeared. Everyone tells lies, and no one is sincere. Won't you chop off all flattering tongues that boast so loudly? They say to themselves, “We are great speakers. No one else has a chance.” But you, LORD , tell them, “I will do something! The poor are ill-treated and helpless people moan. I'll rescue all who suffer.” Our LORD , you are true to your promises, and your word is like silver heated seven times in a fiery furnace. You will protect us and always keep us safe from those people. But all who are wicked will keep on strutting, while everyone praises their shameless deeds.

Please help me, LORD ! All who were faithful and all who were loyal have disappeared. Everyone tells lies, and no one is sincere. Won't you chop off …

Psalms 11:4-7 CEVUK; The LORD is sitting in his sacred temple on his throne in heaven. He knows everything we do because he sees us all. The LORD tests honest people, but despises those who are cruel and love violence. He will send fiery coals and flaming sulphur down on the wicked, and they will drink nothing but a scorching wind. The LORD always does right and wants justice done. Everyone who does right will see his face.
