   TREES  &  FRUIT  
S64  Matt 7   Mark   S61  Luke 6
17* "So every sound tree bears good fruit       
  but the <rotten> tree bears evil fruit.      
18 A sound tree cannot bear evil fruit,   43* "For no good tree bears <rotten> fruit,
  nor can a <rotten> tree bear good fruit."      nor again does a <rotten> tree bear good fruit."

* Note: in Luke this saying precedes the botanical principle 
of identifying trees by their fruit; 
in Matthew these verses follow that aphorism.
