Matthew 5:16-26 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
16 "Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may 1see your good works, and 2glorify your Father who is in heaven. 17 "Do not think that I came to abolish the 3Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. 18 "For truly I say to you, 4until heaven and earth pass away, not athe smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished. 19 "Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches bothers to do the same, shall be called least 5in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever ckeeps and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 "For I say to you that unless your 6righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
