Matthew 5:17-28

Worsley(i) 17 Think not that I am come to abrogate the law, or the prophets: I am not come to abolish, but to compleat them: 18 for verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass away, not one jot nor one tittle shall pass from the law, till all be compleated. 19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of the left of these commandments, and thereby teach men so to do, he shall be esteemed very little in the kingdom of heaven: but whoever shall do as well as teach them, he shall be accounted great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I tell you, that unless your righteousness exceed 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 whosoever committeth murder, shall be liable to the judgment: 22 but I say unto you, that whosoever is angry with his brother without cause shall be liable to the judgment; and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be obnoxious to the council; but whosoever shall say, "Thou fool," shall be in danger of hell-fire. 23 Therefore, if thou bring thine offering to the altar, and there remembrest that thy brother hath any complaint against thee; 24 leave thy gift there before the altar, and go and first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. 25 Be friends with thine adversary quickly, while thou art in the way with him; least the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison: 26 verily, I say unto thee, thou shalt not come out from thence, till thou hast paid the very last farthing. 27 Ye have heard, that it was said to the ancients, Thou shalt not commit adultery: 28 but I tell you, that whosoever looketh on a woman, so as to lust after her, hath already debauched her in his heart.
