View In My Bible

Anger

21 1"You have heard that it was said to those of old, 2'You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable 3to judgment.' 22 But I say to you that 4everyone who is angry with his brothera will be liable 5to judgment; whoever insultsb his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, 'You fool!' will be liable to 6the hellc of fire. 23 7So if 8you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. 25 9Come to terms quickly with your accuser while you are going with him to court, lest your accuser hand you over to the judge, and the judge to the guard, and you be put in prison. 26 Truly, I say to you, 10you will never get out until you have paid the last penny.d

Lust

27 11"You have heard that it was said, 12'You shall not commit adultery.' 28 But I say to you that 13everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 14If your right eye 15causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into 16hell. 30 17And if your right hand 18causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into 19hell.

Divorce

31 20"It was also said, 21'Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.'
