Therefore all things that <​whatsoever​> ye would that men should <​do​> to you do ye even so to them for this is the law and the prophets enter ye in at the repent therefore and enter ye in at the straight gate for wide is the gate and broad the <​way​> that leads <​leadeth​> to destruction and many there be which who go in there at because straight is the gate and narrow the way that leadeth unto life and few there be that find it and again beware of fals Prophets that come to you in sheeps clothing ye shall know them by their fruits but inwardly they are ravening wolves. ye shall know them by their fruits for do men gather grapes of thorns of <​or​> figs of thisles even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit a good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit neither a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them V[e]rily I say unto you it is not every one that saith unto me Lord Lord shall enter into the Kingdom of heaven but he that doeth the will of my father who is in heaven for they day soon cometh that men shall come before me to judge ment to be judged according to their works and many will say to me in that day Lord Lord have we not Prophecied in thy name and in thy name <​have​> cast out Devils and in thy name done many wonderfull works and then will I say unto them ye never knew me depart from me ye that work iniquity therefore whosoever heareth these saying of mine and doeth them I will liken him unto a [p. 17]
Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you do ye even so to them for this is the law and the prophets repent therefore and enter ye in at the straight gate for wide is the gate and broad the way that leads leadeth to destruction and many there be who go in there at because straight is the gate and narrow the way that leadeth unto life and few there be that find it and again beware of fals Prophets that come to you in sheeps clothing but inwardly they are ravening wolves. ye shall know them by their fruits for do men gather grapes of thorns or figs of thisles even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit a good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit neither a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down and cast into the fire wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them Verily I say unto you it is not every one that saith unto me Lord Lord shall enter into the Kingdom of heaven but he that doeth the will of my father who is in heaven for they day soon cometh that men shall come before me to judge ment to be judged according to their works and many will say to me in that day Lord Lord have we not Prophecied in thy name and in thy name have cast out Devils and in thy name done many wonderfull works and then will I say unto them ye never knew me depart from me ye that work iniquity therefore whosoever heareth these saying of mine and doeth them I will liken him unto a [p. 17]
