Are there any language literary devices associated with the (Matthew 7:1-5) bible verse "Do not judge so that you will not be judged....." ?
New American Standard Bible 1995
7 “Do not judge so that you will not be judged. 2 For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and [a]by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you. 3 Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? 4 Or how [b]can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ and behold, the log is in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.
6 “Do not give what is holy to dogs, and do not throw your pearls before swine, or they will trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces.
Prayer and the Golden Rule
7 “[c]Ask, and it will be given to you; [d]seek, and you will find; [e]knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 9 Or what man is there among you [f]who, when his son asks for a loaf, [g]will give him a stone? 10 Or [h]if he asks for a fish, he will not give him a snake, will he? 11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him!
12 “In everything, therefore, [i]treat people the same way you want [j]them to treat you, for this is the Law and the Prophets.
@Dottard As per your comment request, from my perspective, it seems that the Matthew 7:1 's phrasing that starts off with "Do Not judge so that you will Not be judged" can be viewed as hyperbole because Matthew is resorting to hyperbole in order to emphasize
that people should be Reluctant to dole out judgements about others because people might Not be evaluating/understanding all the contextual circumstantial aspects and conditions revolving around other people's actions and behviours in life.
Furthermore, the people who judge need to be cautious & careful about doling out judgements because they themselves have flaws just like the people who are being judged have flaws.
Therefore, Matthew 7:1 's phrasing about Not judging others is hyperbole because it's Not really intending to state that people should Never judge others but rather that people should be reluctant, careful & cautious about judging others.
(Matthew 7:1) 7 “Do not judge so that you will not be judged. 2 For in the way you judge, you will be judged; and [a]by your standard of measure, it will be measured to you.
To be more specific, Could the (Matthew 7:1-5) bible verses be associated with literary devices of hyperbole, figure of speech? To elaborate, could we interpret said verses to be suggesting that we should be careful and Not be too quick to judge others. Righteous Godly judgement should be done carefully with cautious attention.
