Temptations to Sin

42 (A)“Whoever causes one of (B)these little ones who believe in me to sin,[a] (C)it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea. 43 (D)And if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than with two hands to go to (E)hell,[b] to (F)the unquenchable fire.[c] 45 (G)And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life lame than with two feet to be thrown into (H)hell. 47 (I)And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into (J)hell, 48 ‘where (K)their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched.’
