Matthew 7:1-12

Here is my translation of Matthew 7:1-12. Please critique.

7"Do not be judging, so that y o u may not be judged; 2 for y o u will be judged by the judgment with which y o u judge, and it will be measured to y o u by the measure with which y o u measure. 3 And why are you trying to see the speck in your brother's eye, but you do not consider the beam in your eye? 4 Or how will you say to your brother, 'Please let me take out the speck from your eye'; and look, the beam is in your eye? Hypocrite! First take out the beam from your eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the speck from your brother's eye. 6 Do not give the holy thing to the dogs, and do not throw y o ur pearls before swine lest they trample them with their feet, and after turning they tear y o u in pieces.

7 "Ask, and it will be given to y o u! seek, and y o u will find! Knock, and it will be opened to y o u! 8 For everyone asking receives, and the one seeking finds, and to the one knocking it will be opened. 9 Or who is the man among you who, if his son asks for bread, he will not grant him a stone, will he? 10 And if he asks for a fish, he will not grant to him a snake, will he? 11 If y o u therefore, being evil, have known to give good gifts to y o ur children, by how much more will your Father who is in the heavens give good things to those who ask Him?

12 "Therefore, all things that y o u wish that people would do for y o u, in this way also y o u do for them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.
