“Do not judge, or you too will be judged.
For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged,
and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye
and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?
How can you say to your brother,
`Let me take the speck out of your eye,’
when all the time there is a plank in your own eye?
You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye,
and then you will see clearly
to remove the speck from your brother’s eye”
“The word of God came to John son of Zechariah in the desert.
He went into all the country around the Jordan,
preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.
As is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet:
“A voice of one calling in the desert,
`Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him”
