For truly do I say to you, Not till heaven and earth pass away, shall one jot or one tittle pass from the Law, till all be fulfilled.

Ye have heard that it was said to them of old time, "Thou shalt not kill; and whoever shall kill, shall be in danger of the Judges."

But I say to you, that whoever looketh on a woman to lust after her, hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. And if thy right eye cause thee to offend, pluck it out, and cast it from thee; for it is better for thee that one of thy members should perish, than that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

But I say to you, that whoever putteth away his wife, unless it be on account of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery; and whoever shall marry her when put away, committeth adultery. Again ye have heard that it was said to them of old time, "Thou shalt not swear falsely, but shalt perform to the Lord thine oaths." But I say to you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven, for it is the throne of God; nor by the earth, for it is his footstool; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King; nor shalt thou swear by thy head, for thou canst not make one hair white or black. But let your language be, Yea, yea; Nay; nay; for whatever is more than these cometh of evil. Ye have heard that it was said, "An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth." But I say to you, that ye resist not the evildoer; but whoever smiteth thee on the right cheek, turn to him the other also; and if any one intends to sue thee at the law, and take thy coat, give up to him thy cloak also; and whoever shall compel thee to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him that asketh of thee; and from him that would borrow of thee, turn not away. Ye have heard that it was said, "Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy." But I say to you, Love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you;

Doth any one of you, who hath a matter against another, dare to go to law before the unrighteous, and not before the holy? Or do ye not know, that the holy will judge the world? And if the world is to be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge in causes of the least importance? Know ye not, that we shall pass judgment upon angels? How much more, concerning affairs of this life? read more.
If then ye have any causes relating to this life, set them to judge who are of no repute in the church. I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you, not one that will be able to judge between his brethren? Nay, brother goeth to law with brother, and that before unbelievers. Now therefore it is altogether an evil among you, that ye have suits against each other. Why do ye not rather submit to wrong? Why do ye not rather allow yourselves to be defrauded? But ye yourselves wrong, and defraud, and that too your brethren.
