|The Message (MSG)
||New International Version (NIV)
28 But don't think you've preserved your virtue simply by staying out of bed. Your heart can be corrupted by lust even quicker than your body. Those leering looks you think nobody notices - they also corrupt.
28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
