Bible: Matthew 12:33-37

Trees and Their Fruit

12:33Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad 1  and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is known by its fruit. 12:34 Offspring of vipers! How are you able to say anything good, since you are evil? For the mouth speaks from what fills the heart. 12:35 The good person 2  brings good things out of his 3  good treasury, 4  and the evil person brings evil things out of his evil treasury. 12:36 I 5  tell you that on the day of judgment, people will give an account for every worthless word they speak. 12:37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”
