The exact phrase "judge the spirit" doesn't appear in the KJV, NKJV, Standard or NIV translations of the NT. This is close: 1 John 4:1 - Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. (NKJV) Or you may be thinking of 1 Corinthians 2:13 - These things we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. (NKJV)
