Mark 9:42-48Revised Standard Version (RSV)
Temptations to Sin
42 “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin,[a] it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung round his neck and he were thrown into the sea. 43 And if your hand causes you to sin,[b] cut it off; it is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go to hell,[c] to the unquenchable fire.[d] 45 And if your foot causes you to sin,[e] cut it off; it is better for you to enter life lame than with two feet to be thrown into hell.[f][g] 47 And if your eye causes you to sin,[h] pluck it out; it is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into hell,[i] 48 where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.
