There are three frames below. Each has two 3-letter words across and two 4-letter words down. But obviously some of the letters are missing, and there are numbers where the letters should be. Each number is a verse in Matthew 7, where the word you have to complete will be found or at least a word close to it in meaning. Oops! One word in the puzzle is backwards. That’s BAD, isn’t it?
The words are: log, like, eye, gate, dab, dogs, sin, barn, see, sand, day, easy. (The word “dab” is “bad” backwards.)
