Bible Commentary for Matthew 7:2

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 7:2


7:2 With what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you - Awful words! So we may, as it were, choose for ourselves, whether God shall be severe or merciful to us. God and man will favour the candid and benevolent: but they must expect judgment without mercy, who have showed no mercy.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 7:2


Mt 7:2 With what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged. Not by men, but by God. He takes note of the unkind, harsh, censorious spirit, and deals with the man according to his own spirit. There is declared here a great principle that runs through the moral government of God: "Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap" (Ga 6:7).

    Name all the deadly sins I believe there are seven

    I don't know what you mean by deadly sins. All sins can be forgiven but one.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Matthew 7:2
    Proverbs 8 is what you are looking for. There are 6 things that God hates; but I advise reading the whole chapter.

  • Victor on Matthew 7:2
    what is "the law and the prophets"?
  • Luke Beaver - in Reply on Matthew 7:2
    The law and the prophets is a reference to what we now call the Old Testament scriptures which contain the law of Moses and the Prophetic writings such as Jeremiah ect.
  • Mary Jane Humes - in Reply on Matthew 7:2
    Victor, the law and the prophets mean the first five books of the Bible.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Matthew 7:2
    Greetings Victor, The Law when mentioned in the new testament generally refers to the first five books of the Bible attributed to Moses. Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. This is where the ten commandments are found.

    The prophets were the (major in size) writings of those like Jeremiah, Isaiah, etc.

    The Minor (in size) prophets were those like Amos, Jonah, Micah, etc.

    Someone asked Jesus what was the most important or great commandment.

    Matthew 22:36 - Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

    Mat 22:37 - Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

    Mat 22:38 - This is the first and great commandment.

    Mat 22:39 - And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

    Mat 22:40 - On these two commandments hang ALL the law and the prophets.

    In other words if you keep the two commandments you keep them all.

    Well that and believing that Jesus is Christ

    Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
  • Victor - in Reply on Matthew 7:2
    Praise the Lord!

    Thank you brother Bob Hilt!
