Matthew 6:22-23 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

22 The lantern of thy body is thine eye; if thine eye be simple, all thy body shall be light-full;

23 but if thine eye be wayward, all thy body shall be dark[-full]. If then the light that is in thee be darknesses, how great shall those darknesses be? [but if thine eye be wayward, all thy body shall be dark-full. Therefore if the light that is in thee be darkness, how great shall those darknesses be?]

Matthew 6:22-23 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

22 The light of the body is your eye. Therefore if your eye is single, all your body will be full of light. 23 But if your eye is bad, then all your body will be full of darkness. Therefore if the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
