Matthew 5:17-28

Noyes(i) 17 Think not that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets: I came not to destroy, but to fulfill. 18 For truly do I say to you, Not till heaven and earth pass away, shall one jot or one tittle pass from the Law, till all be fulfilled. 19 Whoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, will be called the least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever shall do and teach them, he will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I say to you, Unless your righteousness shall exceed that of the scribes and Pharisees, ye will not enter the kingdom of heaven. 21 Ye have heard that it was said to them of old time, "Thou shalt not kill; and whoever shall kill, shall be in danger of the Judges." 22 But I say to you, that whoever is angry with his brother shall be in danger of the Judges; and whoever shall say to his brother, Simpleton! shall be in danger of the Council; and whoever shall say, Fool! shall be in danger of hellfire. 23 Therefore, if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there remember that thy brother hath aught against thee, 24 leave there thy gift before the altar, and go away; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. 25 Agree with thine adversary at law quickly, while thou art on the road with him; lest the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. 26 Truly do I say to thee, Thou wilt not come out thence, till thou hast paid the last farthing. 27 Ye have heard that it was said, "Thou shalt not commit adultery." 28 But I say to you, that whoever looketh on a woman to lust after her, hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
