ProverbEdit

judge not, that you be not judged

  1. Alternative form of judge not, that ye be not judged

Usage notesEdit

The phrase comes from the King James Bible, which, however, has “ye” instead of “you”. Its translators would have considered the substitution of "you” for “ye” ungrammatical: at the time, the form “you” was used only in the oblique case (object case).
