View In My Bible
23 So if you are offering your gift on the altar, and there you remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled with your brother, and then come and offer your gift. 25 Reach a settlement quickly with your adversary while you're on the way with him, or your adversary will hand you over to the judge, the judge to a the officer, and you will be thrown into prison. 26 I assure you: You will never get out of there until you have paid the last penny! b/ 64 of a daily wage

Adultery in the Heart

27 "You have heard that it was said, Do not commit adultery. c 28 But I tell you, everyone who looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of the parts of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of the parts of your body than for your whole body to go into hell!

Divorce Practices Censured

31 "It was also said, Whoever divorces his wife must give her a written notice of divorce. d 32 But I tell you, everyone who divorces his wife, except in a case of sexual immorality, e = fornication, or possibly a violation of Jewish marriage laws causes her to commit adultery. And whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

Tell the Truth
