    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:1

    ¶ No juzguis, para que no seis juzgados.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Matthew 7:1

    Verse 1.
    Judge not, that ye be not judged.] These exhortations are pointed against rash, harsh, and uncharitable judgments, the thinking evil, where no evil seems, and speaking of it accordingly. The Jews were highly criminal here, and yet had very excellent maxims against it, as may be seen in Schoettgen. This is one of the most important exhortations in the whole of this excellent sermon. By a secret and criminal disposition of nature, man endeavours to elevate himself above others, and, to do it more effectually, depresses them. His jealous and envious heart wishes that there may be no good quality found but in himself, that he alone may be esteemed. Such is the state of every unconverted man; and it is from this criminal disposition, that evil surmises, rash judgments, precipitate decisions, and all other unjust procedures against our neighbour, flow.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 1.
    Judge not, that ye be not judged .] This is not to be understood of any sort of judgment; not of judgment in the civil courts of judicature, by proper magistrates, which ought to be made and pass, according to the nature of the case; nor of judgment in the churches of Christ, where offenders are to be called to an account, examined, tried, and dealt with according to the rules of the Gospel; nor of every private judgment, which one man may make upon another, without any detriment to him; but of rash judgment, interpreting mens words and deeds to the worst sense, and censuring them in a very severe manner; even passing sentence on them, with respect to their eternal state and condition. Good is the advice given by the famous Hillell f458 , who lived a little before Christs time; Do not judge thy neighbour, (says he,) until thou comest into his place.

    It would be well, if persons subject to a censorious spirit, would put themselves in the case and circumstances the persons are in they judge; and then consider, what judgment they would choose others should pass on them. The argument Christ uses to dissuade from this evil, which the Jews were very prone to, is, that ye be not judged; meaning, either by men, for such censorious persons rarely have the good will of their fellow creatures, but are commonly repaid in the same way; or else by God, which will be the most awful and tremendous: for such persons take upon them the place of God, usurp his prerogative, as if they knew the hearts and states of men; and therefore will have judgment without mercy at the hands of God.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-6 - We must judge ourselves, and judge of our own acts, but not make ou word a law to everybody. We must not judge rashly, nor pass judgmen upon our brother without any ground. We must not make the worst of people. Here is a just reproof to those who quarrel with their brethre for small faults, while they allow themselves in greater ones. Some sins are as motes, while others are as beams; some as a gnat, others a a camel. Not that there is any sin little; if it be a mote, or splinter, it is in the eye; if a gnat, it is in the throat; both ar painful and dangerous, and we cannot be easy or well till they are go out. That which charity teaches us to call but a splinter in ou brother's eye, true repentance and godly sorrow will teach us to call beam in our own. It is as strange that a man can be in a sinful miserable condition, and not be aware of it, as that a man should have a beam in his eye, and not consider it; but the god of this worl blinds their minds. Here is a good rule for reprovers; first refor thyself.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    7:1 {
    Judge not} (me krinete). The habit of censoriousness, sharp, unjust criticism. Our word critic is from this very word. It means to separate, distinguish, discriminate. That is necessary, but pre-judice (prejudgment) is unfair, captious criticism.
