But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.
The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash."
how much more those who live in houses of clay, whose foundations are in the dust, who are crushed more readily than a moth!
as water wears away stones and torrents wash away the soil, so you destroy a person's hope.
Before his time he will wither, and his branches will not flourish.
They spend their years in prosperity and go down to the grave in peace.
How often are they like straw before the wind, like chaff swept away by a gale?
