The Two Foundations. 24 [a]“Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock.(A) 25 The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house.(B) But it did not collapse; it had been set solidly on rock. 26 And everyone who listens to these words of mine but does not act on them will be like a fool who built his house on sand. 27 The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house. And it collapsed and was completely ruined.”

Footnotes

  1. 7:24–27 The conclusion of the discourse (cf. Lk 6:47–49). Here the relation is not between saying and doing as in Mt 7:15–23 but between hearing and doing, and the words of Jesus are applied to every Christian (everyone who listens).
