The Sermon On The Mount: Adultery And Lust

27 You have heard that it was said by them of old time, You shall not commit adultery: 28  But I say unto you, That whosoever looks on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart. 29 And if your right eye causes you to offend, pluck it out, and cast it from you: for it is better for you that one of your members should perish, and not that your whole body should be cast into hell.
