Mark 9:42-50Revised Standard Version (RSV)

Temptations to Sin

42 “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin,[a] it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung round his neck and he were thrown into the sea. 43 And if your hand causes you to sin,[b] cut it off; it is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go to hell,[c] to the unquenchable fire.[d] 45 And if your foot causes you to sin,[e] cut it off; it is better for you to enter life lame than with two feet to be thrown into hell.[f][g] 47 And if your eye causes you to sin,[h] pluck it out; it is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into hell,[i] 48 where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched. 49 For every one will be salted with fire.[j] 50 Salt is good; but if the salt has lost its saltness, how will you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another.”
