Matthew 5:23-33 (English Standard Version)

View In My Bible
23 1So if 2you 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 3Come 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, 4you will never get out until you have paid the last penny.a

Lust

27 5"You have heard that it was said, 6'You shall not commit adultery.' 28 But I say to you that 7everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 8If your right eye 9causes 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 10hell. 30 11And if your right hand 12causes 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 13hell.

Divorce

31 14"It was also said, 15'Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.' 32 16But I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except on the ground of sexual immorality, makes her commit adultery, and 17whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

Oaths

33 "Again 18you have heard that it was said to those of old, 19'You shall not swear falsely, but 20shall perform to the Lord what you have sworn.'
