Think not that I am come to make void the law or the prophets; I am not come to make void, but to fulfil. a18
For verily I say unto you, Until the heaven and the earth pass away, one iota or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law till all come to pass.
Whosoever then shall do away with one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of the heavens; but whosoever shall practise and teach [them], *he* shall be called great in the kingdom of the heavens.
For I say unto you, that unless your righteousness surpass b [that] of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no wise enter into the kingdom of the heavens.
Ye have heard that it was said to the ancients, Thou shalt not kill; but whosoever shall kill shall be subject to the judgment.
But *I* say unto you, that every one that is lightly angry with his brother shall be subject to the judgment; but whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, c shall be subject to [be called before] the sanhedrim; but whosoever shall say, Fool, d shall be subject to e the penalty of the hell f of fire.

leave there thy gift before the altar, and first go, be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
Make friends with thine adverse party quickly, whilst thou art in the way with him; lest some time g the adverse party deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.
Verily I say to thee, Thou shalt in no wise come out thence till thou hast paid the last farthing. h27
Ye have heard that it has been said, Thou shalt not commit adultery.
