    Definitions for Matthew 7:20

    Wherefore - Why?; for what reason?; for what cause?

    Clarke's Commentary on Matthew 7:20

    Wherefore by their fruits, etc. - This truth is often repeated, because our eternal interests depend so much upon it. Not to have good fruit is to have evil: there can be no innocent sterility in the invisible tree of the heart. He that brings forth no fruit, and he that brings forth bad fruit, are both only fit for the fire.
