Matthew 5:26-28 The Passion Translation (TPT)

26 Believe me, you won’t get out of prison until you have paid the full amount!”

Adultery

27 “Your ancestors have been taught, ‘Never commit adultery.’[a] 28 However, I say to you, if you look with lust in your eyes at the body of a woman who is not your wife, you’ve already committed adultery in your heart.[b]

Footnotes:

  1. Matthew 5:27 See Ex. 20:14.
  2. Matthew 5:28 The Aramaic is speaking of more than adultery with a married woman; it uses the word for any sex act outside of marriage. Jesus elevates the standard of righteousness. He is holy, and when he comes to live within the believer, his holiness is the fulfillment of what God requires of us.
