Matthew 5:17-28

Thomson(i) 17 Do not imagine that I am come to annul the law and the prophets. I am not come to annul, but to confirm them. 18 For verily I say to you, Until that heaven and this earth shall have passed away, not one jot nor a tittle of the law shall be annulled till all be accomplished. 19 Therefore whosoever shall weaken the force of one of the commandments, were it even the least, and teach men accordingly, he shall be the least esteemed in the reign of the heavens; but whoever shall practise and teach them, he shall be highly esteemed in the reign of the heavens. 20 For I say to you, Unless your righteousness exceed that of the Scribes and Pharisees, you can in no wise enter the kingdom of the heavens. 21 You have heard that it was said to them of old, "Thou shalt not commit murder." And, "Whosoever shall commit murder shall be liable to the sentence of the judges." 22 But I say to you, Whosoever is angry with his brother without cause, shall be liable to the sentence of the judges: and whoever shall say to his brother, Raca, [a contemptuous word] shall be liable to the sentence of the Sanhedrim; and whoever shall say, Moreh, [a reproachful word] shall be liable [to be sentenced] to the vale of fire. 23 If therefore thou bring thy gift to the altar and recollect there that thy brother hath ground of complaint against thee; 24 leave there thy gift before the altar and go away. First of all be reconciled with thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. 25 Come speedily to a friendly agreement with thine adversary, whilst thou art on the road with him; lest the adversary deliver thee up to the judge; and the judge consign thee to the officer, and thou be thrown into prison. 26 Verily I say to thee, thou shalt not be released until thou hast discharged the last farthing. 27 You have heard that it hath been said to the ancients, "Thou shalt not commit adultery." 28 But I say to you, whoever looketh on a married woman so as to lust after her, hath already committed adultery with her in his heart.
