Teaching about Adultery

27 “You have heard the commandment that says, ‘You must not commit adultery.’[a] 28 But I say, anyone who even looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 So if your eye—even your good eye[b]—causes you to lust, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 And if your hand—even your stronger hand[c]—causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.

Teaching about Divorce

31 “You have heard the law that says, ‘A man can divorce his wife by merely giving her a written notice of divorce.’[d] 32 But I say that a man who divorces his wife, unless she has been unfaithful, causes her to commit adultery. And anyone who marries a divorced woman also commits adultery.

Enseñanza acerca del adulterio

27 »Han oído el mandamiento que dice: “No cometas adulterio”[a] . 28 Pero yo digo que el que mira con pasión sexual a una mujer ya ha cometido adulterio con ella en el corazón. 29 Por lo tanto, si tu ojo—incluso tu ojo bueno[b]—te hace caer en pasiones sexuales, sácatelo y tíralo. Es preferible que pierdas una parte de tu cuerpo y no que todo tu cuerpo sea arrojado al infierno. 30 Y si tu mano—incluso tu mano más fuerte[c]—te hace pecar, córtala y tírala. Es preferible que pierdas una parte del cuerpo y no que todo tu cuerpo sea arrojado al infierno.

Enseñanza acerca del divorcio

31 »Han oído la ley que dice: “Un hombre puede divorciarse de su esposa con solo darle por escrito un aviso de divorcio”[d] . 32 Pero yo digo que un hombre que se divorcia de su esposa, a menos que ella le haya sido infiel, hace que ella cometa adulterio; y el que se casa con una mujer divorciada también comete adulterio.
