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).

Discussion for Matthew 7:2

  • Victor on Matthew 7:2
    what is "the law and the prophets"?
  • 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.

  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 7:2
    Kathy, Bendito has given you some great & pertinent Scriptures on life after death. I thought to just give you one more, that confirms further in MY heart of my instantaneous removal from this body & from this Earth at time of death. The Scripture is in 2 Corinthians 5:1-8. Paul speaks of his longing to put off this body of flesh (i.e. to die & "to be with Christ, which is far better") & be clothed with a new body. And Paul goes on to say, that he can confidently say that whilst he was here on Earth it meant that he wasn't physically with his Lord in Heaven; rather, he says, he was "willing to be absent in the body & present with the Lord". This means that when he dies, his body would be left behind, but his spirit would instantly return to the Lord (also Ecclesiastes 12:7). There is no suggestion of some delay from death to eternity; Paul strongly writes that the transition from earth to heaven (for the Christian), or from death to eternal life is instantaneous. This was his hope & longing and of course, the great desire of every child of God still alive now.
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Matthew 7:2
    None of us on this side the grave can know exactly what awaits us, but the Bible does give some glimpses into the LORD's wonderful plan for us. I can suggest a few to consider. We know the body remains in the grave and eventually returns to the dust until resurrection day. 1 Corinthians 15 is a great study on the particulars of the resurrection. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 speaks of those that "sleep in Jesus" in order that we may be comforted. David said of his child in 2 Samuel 12:23, "I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.". Jesus, in John 11:25-26, tells us that by believing in him we will never die (spiritually that is). Jesus' story of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16 indicates a state of consciousness on the part of the deceased. In John 14, Jesus says he's going to prepare a place for us in order to receive us there to be with him. In Revelation 6:9-11, there is an interesting portrayal of martyred souls under the altar in heaven. Jude tells of Enoch's prophecy regarding the Lord's return with ten thousands of his saints.

    thank you so much...I have one more question...what, when and where is the rapture?
  • Mishael on Signs of the Times - in Reply on Matthew 7:2
    People have tried before to set dates; but they end up looking like fools.

    No one knows except God the Father. Not even Jesus knows.
