THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Matthew (Author Matthew)

5:27Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:

5:28But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

5:29And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

5:30And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

5:31It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement:

5:32But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

5:33Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths:

5:34But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne:

5:35Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.

5:36Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.

5:37But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

5:38Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:

5:39But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.

5:40And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also.

5:41And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
