43 (A)If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life [a]maimed, rather than having two hands, to go to [b]hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched— 44 [c]where

(B)‘Their worm does not die
And the fire is not quenched.’

45 And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life lame, rather than having two feet, to be cast into [d]hell, [e]into the fire that shall never be quenched— 46 where

(C)‘Their worm does not die
And the fire is not quenched.’

47 And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into [f]hell fire— 48 where

(D)‘Their worm does not die
And the (E)fire is not quenched.’

Tasteless Salt Is Worthless

49 “For everyone will be (F)seasoned with fire, (G)and[g] every sacrifice will be seasoned with salt. 50 (H)Salt is good, but if the salt loses its flavor, how will you season it? (I)Have salt in yourselves, and (J)have peace with one another.”
