Context Readings

The Sermon On The Plain: Two Houses And Two Foundations

47 Every one who cometh to me, and heareth my words, and puts them in practice, I will shew you to whom he is like: 48 he is like to a man, building a house, who digged, and sunk deep, and laid the foundation on a rock; and when there was a flood, the river rushed violently against that house, and was not of force to shake it, for it was founded on a rock. 49 But he that heareth, and doth not practice, is like a man who built his house on the earth without a foundation; against which the river rushed violently, and immediately it fell; and the crash of the fall of that house was great.
