Temptations to Sin

“Woe to the world for (A)temptations to sin![a] (B)For it is necessary that temptations come, (C)but woe to the one by whom the temptation comes! (D)And if your hand or your foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life crippled or lame than with two hands or two feet to be thrown into (E)the eternal fire. (F)And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into the (G)hell[b] of fire.

The Parable of the Lost Sheep

10 “See that you do not despise (H)one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven (I)their angels always (J)see the face of my Father who is in heaven.[c]
