I tell you the truth, anyone who gives you a cup of water in my name because you belong to Christ will certainly not lose his reward.1
"And if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin,2 it would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a large millstone tied around his neck.3
If your hand causes you to sin,4 cut it off. It is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go into hell,5 where the fire never goes out.6
And if your foot causes you to sin,7 cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than to have two feet and be thrown into hell.8
And if your eye causes you to sin,9 pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell,10
where " 'their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.'11
Everyone will be salted12 with fire.
"Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again?13 Have salt in yourselves,14 and be at peace with each other."15
