Matthew 5:17-28

Murdock(i) 17 Do not suppose that I have come to subvert the law or the prophets: I have come not to subvert, but to fulfill. 18 For verily I say to you, that until heaven and earth shall pass away, one iota or one letter shall not pass from the law, until all shall be fulfilled. 19 Therefore whoever shall break one of these small commands and shall so inculcate on the children of men, shall be called little in the kingdom of heaven: but every one that shall do and teach them, shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I say to you, that unless your righteousness shall abound more than that of the Scribes and Pharisees, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 21 Ye have heard that it was said to the ancients, Thou shalt not kill: and every one that killeth, is obnoxious to judgment. 22 But I say to you, That every one who is angry with his brother rashly, is obnoxious to judgment: and every one that saith to his brother, Raka! is obnoxious to the council and every one that shall say, Fool is obnoxious to hell-fire. 23 If therefore thou shalt bring thy oblation to the altar, and shalt there remember that thy brother hath any offence against thee, 24 leave there thy oblation before the altar, and go first and be reconciled with thy brother; and then come and present thy oblation. 25 Be at agreement with thy prosecutor, forthwith, and while on the way with him; lest the prosecutor deliver thee up to the judge, and the Judge deliver thee over to the sheriff, and thou fall into the house of prisoners. 26 Verily I say to thee, Thou wilt not come out from there until thou hast paid the last farthing. 27 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt not commit adultery. 28 But I say to you, That whoever gazeth on a woman with concupiscence, at once committeth adultery with her in his heart.
