Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
So that by their fruits ye shall know them.
Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree corrupt and its fruit corrupt; for the tree is known by its fruit.
2 Peter 2:10
and chiefly those that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness and despise dominion; presumptuous, arrogant, they are not afraid to speak evil of the higher powers;
But these speak evil of those things which they do not know; but what they know by nature as animals without reason, in those things they corrupt themselves.
For a good tree does not bring forth corrupt fruit; neither does a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Can the fig tree, my brethren, produce olive berries? or the vine, figs? In the same manner no fountain can yield both salt water and fresh.
