Matthew 5:21-22 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Murder Begins in the Heart

21 “You have heard that it was said to our ancestors,[a] Do not murder,[b] and whoever murders will be subject to judgment. 22 But I tell you, everyone who is angry with his brother[c] will be subject to judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘Fool!’[d] will be subject to the Sanhedrin. But whoever says, ‘You moron!’ will be subject to hellfire.[e]

Matthew 5:27-30 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Adultery in the Heart

27 “You have heard that it was said, Do not commit adultery.[a] 28 But I tell you, everyone who looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of the parts of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of the parts of your body than for your whole body to go into hell!
