The Two Foundations

24 “Therefore (A)everyone who hears these words of Mine and [a]acts on them, [b]may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the [c]floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. 26 Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not [d]act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 The rain fell, and the [e]floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.”

28 [f](B)When Jesus had finished these words, (C)the crowds were amazed at His teaching; 29 for He was teaching them as one having authority, and not as their scribes.
