|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.
