- Notes (no notes if red),
Do not speak
. He who speaks
; but if
, you are not
of the law
but a judge
¶ Believers, do not speak against
slander one another. He who speaks [self-righteously] against a brother or
judges his brother [hypocritically], speaks against the Law and judges the Law. If you judge the Law, you are not a doer of the Law but a judge of it.
Amplified 2015 Translator's Notes:
Literal renderings, alternate translations or explanations.
This is not a prohibition of all judgment, nor is it a command to stop using godly wisdom, common sense, and moral courage together with God's written word to discern right from wrong, to distinguish between morality and immorality, and to judge doctrinal truth. There are many judgments that are not only legitimate, but are commanded (cf John 7:24; 1 Cor 5:5, 12; Gal 1:8, 9; 1 John 4:1-3; 2 John 10); however, you cannot judge another if you are committing the same type of sin.
NASB Cross References:
2 Cor 12:20
For I am afraid that perhaps when I come I may find you to be not what I wish and may be found by you to be not what you wish; that perhaps
there will be
strife, jealousy, angry tempers, disputes, slanders, gossip, arrogance, disturbances;
Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.
"Do not judge so that you will not be judged.
¶ If, however, you are fulfilling the royal law according to the Scripture, "Y
OU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF
," you are doing well.
But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves.
