"Cast the first stone" in the Bible: John 8:7
Jesus faced a mob that was eager to execute a woman caught in adultery. He put a stop to it with a simple challenge: anyone who has no sin in their life should step forward and throw the first stone. That sentence is often cited as a reminder to avoid judging others when there are faults in your own life that need to be addressed.
"Judge" in the Bible: Matthew 7:1-5
It's a natural human impulse to judge and criticize others, to note how they don't measure up to our standards in one way or another.

"Judge not" in the Bible: Matthew 7:1-3
Jesus' famous reprimand for those who spend lots of time judging others, while ignoring their own faults. We certainly wouldn't want to be judged in the same way we judge others--so leave the judging to God, and focus on correcting your own weaknesses instead.
