NKJVNew King James Version
21“Not everyone who says to Me, #Hos. 8:2; Matt. 25:11; Luke 6:46; Acts 19:13‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who #Rom. 2:13; James 1:22does the will of My Father in heaven. 22Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we #Num. 24:4not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23And #Matt. 25:12; Luke 13:25; (2 Tim. 2:19)then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; #Ps. 5:5; 6:8; (Matt. 25:41); Luke 13:27depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
Build on the Rock
24“Therefore #Matt. 7:24–27; Luke 6:47–49whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.
26“But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: 27and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”
28And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that #Matt. 13:54; Mark 1:22; 6:2; Luke 4:32; John 7:46the people were astonished at His teaching, 29#(John 7:46)for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
