|Matthew 7:24-27||Luke 6:47-49|
24 Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine,
and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on a rock.
25And the rain came down, and the floods came, and the winds blew
and beat on that house. And it did not fall, for it was founded on a rock.
26And everyone who hears these sayings of Mine and does not do them
shall be compared to a foolish man who built his house on the sand.
27And the rain came down, and the floods came, and the wind blew
and beat on that house. And it fell, and great was its fall.
47Whoever comes to Me and hears My Words,
and does them, I will show you to whom he is like.
48He is like a man who built a house and dug deep and laid the
foundation on a rock; and a flood occurring, the stream burst against that house and could
not shake it; for it was founded on a rock.
49But he who hears and does not perform, is like a man who built a
house on the earth without a foundation, on which the stream burst, and immediately it fell.
And the ruin of that house was great.
Matthew's account uses the contrast of a rock vis. sand, while Luke's account uses the
contrast of digging a foundation deep and placing it on a rock vis. building on the earth
having no foundation.
