1.–5 "2 For in the same manner that you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. 3. : "Why do you focus on the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye while ignoring the plank in your own? 4: How can you tell your brother, "Let me remove the speck out of your eye," when you have a plank in your own eye all the time? 5. You hypocrite, first remove the speck from your own eye, and then you will be able to see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye. 6.-9."
10. "You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. 11.

Summary: "Do not commit adultery - this includes sexual immorality, indecent acts, or any form of sexual impurity related to marriage ceremonies. Don't give in to anger - control your temper & don't act out of jealousy. Don't lie - don't tell lies, don't backbite (spread rumors) - love your neighbor as yourself. If someone commits a crime, bring them to court so that they can be punished. Avoid perjury - don't take an oath and then change your mind about it. Honor your father and mother - they have been entrusted with the care of you since you were born. Love everyone around you - hate what is evil, love what is good. Continue in faith, hope, and love - these three things are necessary for anyone who wants to live happily ever after.
Gateway to the Bible NIV Matthew 7:7 If you judge, you will be judged. For in the same manner that you judge others, you will be judged, and you will be measured with the same yardstick that you use. " Why do you focus on the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye while ignoring the plank in your own?
Jesus said, "You can't serve both God and money." The Bible says, "Do not be conformed to this world (its desires), but be transformed by the renewing of your mind" (Romans 12:2). Its further explained, "This means abandoning our old thoughts and attitudes; replacing them with new ones - thinking new thoughts, saying new words, acting in a new way. This is why it is called a new life." Jesus also said, "I tell you that anyone who believes in me will never die see, but will have eternal life."
Thus, judging others is forbidden because it violates two commandments: to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love our neighbor as ourselves.
Judging others shows that we are still living according to the standards of this world, rather than those of God. We are still thinking and acting like humans, rather than like children of God. Therefore, we are not obeying God's command to live without judgmentating people.
1–5 King James Version Do not judge, lest you be judged. For you will be judged according to your judgment, and you will be mete according to your measure. And why do you notice the speck in your brother's eye but not the beam in your own? Or how can you say to your brother, "Brother, let me take out the speck from your eye," when you yourself have a beam in your own eye? You hypocrite! First of all, remove the beam from your own eye before trying to remove the speck from your brother's eye. Second, since you accuse others of being blind while you are blind yourself, it is necessary for you to be healed first.
6–10 New International Version Do not judge others, or you will be judged. Don't condemn other people; instead, try to understand them. Why do people condemn one another? They go beyond what is fair. Instead, look at their good points like those listed in 1 Peter 4:7–12. Who is wise enough to judge what is right? That's why it says in John 3:35, "He answered, 'Anyone who believes in Jesus has eternal life.' "
11–14 New Living Translation So don't pass judgment on others, or you will be judged. Don't criticize others without giving them a chance to respond to your criticism.
Because you will be judged in the same manner that you assess others, and the measure you use will be used to measure you.
"For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged; and with what measure ye mete, ye shall be mete back." This Scripture does not say never to judge, but rather that God will judge you with the same harshness with which you judge others. You cannot hide from God's justice by refusing to judge.
Jesus also said, "And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?" In other words, don't focus on what is wrong in another person, but rather what is right in yourself.
Finally, Jesus said, "He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me." Here we see that God's priority is your relationship with him, not your relationship with anyone else.
So yes, the Bible says to judge others but only in order to encourage them toward better behavior. And since people can't see beyond their own sin, they need to be reminded of it constantly. Only then will they be motivated to change.
Judging others keeps them away from you!
As a result, it's no surprise that in Matthew 7:1-2, Jesus explicitly emphasizes that we are not to judge the motivations of others: "Judge not, lest you be judged." "You will be judged by the judgment you pronounce, and you will be measured by the measure you employ."
Jesus went on to warn, in Matthew 7:3-5, that judgment also comes to those who fail to help the poor: "Do not give what is holy to the dogs; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet and then turn against you." Jesus' point here is that if you offer gifts to people who do not need them, they will lose their value in God's sight and be thrown away. In other words, giving money or goods to the poor is an act of worship, because God is love and loves us too much to want us to suffer.
Finally, Jesus warned in Matthew 7:6-7 that judgment comes to those who fail to serve him: "Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to heaven, and only a few find it."
Here again, Jesus is warning that we should live our lives so as to avoid judgment.
