17  Thus every good tree produces good fruit, but a rotten tree produces evil fruit.

17  Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but the corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

17  So every good tree bears good fruits; but a bad tree bears bad fruits.

18  A good tree cannot produce evil fruit, nor can a rotten tree produce good fruit.

18  A good tree is not able to produce evil fruit, and an evil tree is not able to produce good fruit.

19  Every tree not producing good fruit is cut down and cast into the fire.

19  Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

19  Any tree which does not bear good fruits will be cut down and cast into the fire.
