24 "Every person therefore, who hears these words of mine and obeys them will be like the sensible person who built his house on a [foundation of] rock. 25 The [heavy] rains came down and the flood waters rose and the winds blew and beat down on that house, but it did not collapse, for it was [built] on a foundation of rock. 26 And every person who hears these words of mine but does not obey them will be like the foolish person who built his house on [a foundation of] sand.
