Matthew 5:17-28

WPNT(i) 17 “Do not suppose that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For assuredly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not one iota nor one tittle shall pass away from the Law until everything happens. 19 Therefore, whoever annuls one of the least of these commandments and teaches that to the people will be called least in the kingdom of the heavens; but whoever does and teaches them, he will be called great in the kingdom of the heavens. 20 For I say to you that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees you will absolutely not enter the kingdom of the heavens! 21 “You have heard that it was said to the ancients, ‘You shall not murder, so whoever murders will be liable to the judgment’. 22 But I say to you that whoever gets angry with his brother without cause will be liable to the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘Numbskull!’ will be liable to the council. But whoever says, ‘You absolute idiot!’ will be liable to hell fire. 23 Therefore, if you bring your gift to the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there before the altar and go; first be reconciled with your brother and then, returning, offer your gift. 25 Be agreeable to your adversary quickly, while you are on the way with him, lest the adversary hand you over to the judge, and the judge hand you over to the officer, and you be thrown into prison. 26 Assuredly I say to you, you will by no means get out of there until you have paid the last penny. 27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery’. 28 But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
