(1/6)

  1. You have heard that it was said, You shall not commit adultery.
  2. But I say to you that every one who looks at a woman in order to lust after her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
  3. So if your right eye stumbles you, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish than for your whole body to be cast into Gehenna.
  4. And if your right hand stumbles you, cut it off and cast it from you, for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish than for your whole body to pass away into Gehenna.
  5. And it was said, Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.
  6. But I say to you that every one who divorces his wife, except for the cause of fornication, causes her to commit adultery, and whoever marries her who has been divorced commits adultery.
  7. Again, you have heard that it was said to the ancients, You shall not break an oath, but you shall render to the Lord your oaths.
  8. But I tell you not to swear at all; neither by heaven, because it is the throne of God;
  9. Nor by the earth, because it is the footstool of His feet; nor unto Jerusalem, because it is the city of the great King;
  10. Neither shall you swear by your head, because you cannot make one hair white or black.
  11. But let your word be, Yes, yes; No, no; for anything more than these is of the evil one.
  12. You have heard that it was said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.
  13. But I tell you not to resist him who is evil; rather whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also.
  14. And to him who wishes to sue you and take your tunic, yield to him your cloak also;
  15. And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two.
  16. To him who asks of you, give; and from him who wants to borrow from you, do not turn away.
  17. You have heard that it was said, You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.
  18. But I say to you, Love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you,
  19. So that you may become sons of your Father who is in the heavens, because He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good and sends rain on the just and the unjust.
  20. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?
  21. And if you greet only your brothers, what better thing are you doing? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?
  22. You therefore shall be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect.
