Yeshua-Jesus, Kingdom of Heaven-GOD Part 6: Sermon on the Mount, Deuteronomy 1:16-17 - Do Not Judge, Deuteronomy 15:9-11 Evil Eye, Job 28 Holy Wisdom

(This is a general interpretation of Holy Scripture. We encourage you to read the scripture for yourself and pray to GOD for knowledge, he will give you knowledge if you ask for it in prayer.)

We continue with Yeshua's amazing Sermon on the Mount. In this lesson Yeshua teaches us not to judge one another and our unrighteous judgement on our brother or neighbor shall be the measuring stick on how we will be judged. This scripture could be, yet again, Yeshua "magnifying" the Law or Torah as it is written in Isaiah 42:21. Yeshua may be referencing Deuteronomy 1:16-17 in the Torah.

Yeshua also teaches more specifically on the "evil eye" and the evil thoughts that come along with it. We should shine our light through our eyes first and love will crowd the heart thus your eye be single and your body will be full of light as Yeshua taught earlier in the Sermon on the Mount.

Yeshua lectures on many different subjects in Matthew 7. One particular teaching is what Yeshua said about rendering Holy things to swine and dogs; and that we should not do it. Yeshua may be referencing Holy Wisdom and or the Kingdom of Heaven as he mentions "neither cast ye your pearls before swine". The pearl is compared to the Kingdom of Heaven in Matthew 13:45-46. Also, Yeshua may be referencing Job 28 as we will see below. But you may reference Matthew 15:22-28 for guidance on the status of the Gentiles within the Law.

Matthew 7

1Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
6Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

Matthew 7:1-2 may be referring to Deuteronomy 1:16-17.

Deuteronomy 1:16-17

16And I charged your judges at that time, saying, Hear the causes between your brethren, and judge righteously between every man and his brother, and the stranger that is with him.
17Ye shall not respect persons in judgment; but ye shall hear the small as well as the great; ye shall not be afraid of the face of man; for the judgment is God's: and the cause that is too hard for you, bring it unto me, and I will hear it.

Also, in Matthew 7:3-5 Yeshua may be referencing Deuteronomy 15:9-11.

Deuteronomy 15:9-11

9Beware that there be not a thought in thy wicked heart, saying, The seventh year, the year of release, is at hand; and thine eye be evil against thy poor brother, and thou givest him nought; and he cry unto the LORD against thee, and it be sin unto thee.
10Thou shalt surely give him, and thine heart shall not be grieved when thou givest unto him: because that for this thing the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thy works, and in all that thou puttest thine hand unto.
11For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land.

Yeshua may be talking about Divine wisdom or the Kingdom of Heaven-GOD in Matthew 7:6 as he compares the Kingdom of Heaven to a fine pearl in Matthew 13: 45-46.

Matthew 13:45-46

45Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
46Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

Also, in Job 28 we can read about the unclean not receiving Divine knowledge.

Job 28
1Surely there is a vein for the silver, and a place for gold where they fine it.
2Iron is taken out of the earth, and brass is molten out of the stone.
3He setteth an end to darkness, and searcheth out all perfection: the stones of darkness, and the shadow of death.
4The flood breaketh out from the inhabitant; even the waters forgotten of the foot: they are dried up, they are gone away from men.
5As for the earth, out of it cometh bread: and under it is turned up as it were fire.
6The stones of it are the place of sapphires: and it hath dust of gold.
7There is a path which no fowl knoweth, and which the vulture's eye hath not seen:
8The lion's whelps have not trodden it, nor the fierce lion passed by it.

9He putteth forth his hand upon the rock; he overturneth the mountains by the roots.
10He cutteth out rivers among the rocks; and his eye seeth every precious thing.
11He bindeth the floods from overflowing; and the thing that is hid bringeth he forth to light.
12But where shall wisdom be found? and where is the place of understanding?
13Man knoweth not the price thereof; neither is it found in the land of the living.
14The depth saith, It is not in me: and the sea saith, It is not with me.
15It cannot be gotten for gold, neither shall silver be weighed for the price thereof.
16It cannot be valued with the gold of Ophir, with the precious onyx, or the sapphire.
17The gold and the crystal cannot equal it: and the exchange of it shall not be for jewels of fine gold.
18No mention shall be made of coral, or of pearls: for the price of wisdom is above rubies.
19The topaz of Ethiopia shall not equal it, neither shall it be valued with pure gold.
20Whence then cometh wisdom? and where is the place of understanding?
21Seeing it is hid from the eyes of all living, and kept close from the fowls of the air.
22Destruction and death say, We have heard the fame thereof with our ears.
23God understandeth the way thereof, and he knoweth the place thereof.
24For he looketh to the ends of the earth, and seeth under the whole heaven;
25To make the weight for the winds; and he weigheth the waters by measure.
26When he made a decree for the rain, and a way for the lightning of the thunder:
27Then did he see it, and declare it; he prepared it, yea, and searched it out.
28And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
