"Think not that I came to destroy the law, or the prophets; I came not to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say to you, till the heaven and the earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass away from the law, till all things be accomplished.

"Ye heard that it was said to the ancients, 'You shall not kill; and whosoever kills shall be in danger of the judgment.'

If, therefore, you are offering your gift at the altar, and there remember that your brother has ought against you, read more.
leave there your gift before the altar, and go your way, first be reconciled to your brother, and then, coming, offer your gift. Agree with your adversary quickly, while you are with him in the way; lest perhaps the adversary deliver you to the judge, and the judge deliver you to the officer, and you be cast into prison.

"And it was said, 'Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement;' but I say to you, that every one who puts away his wife, except on account of fornication, makes her commit adultery: and whosoever marries her when put away commits adultery. "Again ye heard that it was said to the ancients, You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform to the Lord your oaths;" but I say to you, Swear not at all; neither by Heaven, because it is God's throne; nor by the earth, because it is His footstool; nor by Jerusalem, because it is the Great King's city; neither swear by your head, because you can not make one hair white or black. But let your speech be, 'Yes, yes;' 'No, no;' and what is more than these is of the evil one. "Ye heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth,' but I say to you, Resist not the evil man; but whosoever smites you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also; and to him who is desirous that you should be sued at the law, and to take your coat, grant your cloak also; and whosoever shall impress you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him asking you; and from him who wishes to borrow of you turn not away. "Ye heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy;' but I say to you, Love your enemies; and pray for those who persecute you;
