<<
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner
of evil against you falsely, for my sake$
<5
Re.oice, and be e>ceeding glad4 for great is your reward in heaven4 for so persecuted
they the prophets which were before you$
<6
?e are the salt of the earth4 but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be
salted@ it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot
of men$
<7
?e are the light of the world$ % city that is set on an hill cannot be hid$
<#
Aeither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestickB and it
giveth light unto all that are in the house$
<8
'et your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your
Cather which is in heaven$
<9
!hink not that D am come to destroy the law, or the prophets4 D am not come to destroy,
but to fulfil$
<:
Cor verily D say unto you, !ill heaven and earth pass, one .ot or one tittle shall in no
wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled$
<;
-hosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men
so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven4 but whosoever shall do and
teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven$
5=
Cor D say unto you, !hat e>cept your righteousness shall e>ceed the righteousness of the
scribes and Eharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven$
5<
?e have heard that it was said of them of old time, !hou shalt not killB and whosoever
shall kill shall be in danger of the .udgment4
55
But D say unto you, !hat whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in
danger of the .udgment4 and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger
of the council4 but whosoever shall say, !hou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire$
56
!herefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath
ought against theeB
57
'eave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy wayB first be reconciled to thy brother,
and then come and offer thy gift$
5#
%gree with thine adversary Fuickly, whiles thou art in the way with himB lest at any
time the adversary deliver thee to the .udge, and the .udge deliver thee to the officer, and
thou be cast into prison$
58
"erily D say unto thee, !hou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the
uttermost farthing$
59
?e have heard that it was said by them of old time, !hou shalt not commit adultery4
5:
But D say unto you, !hat whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath
committed adultery with her already in his heart$
5;
%nd if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee4 for it is profitable
for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be
cast into hell$
6=
%nd if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee4 for it is profitable for
thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast
into hell$
6<
Dt hath been said, -hosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of
divorcement4
65
But D say unto you, !hat whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of
fornication, causeth her to commit adultery4 and whosoever shall marry her that is
divorced committeth adultery$
66
%gain, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, !hou shalt not forswear
thyself, but shalt perform unto the 'ord thine oaths4
67
But D say unto you, Swear not at allB neither by heavenB for it is *od(s throne4
6#
Aor by the earthB for it is his footstool4 neither by JerusalemB for it is the city of the
great /ing$
68
Aeither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or
black$
69
But let your communication be, ?ea, yeaB Aay, nay4 for whatsoever is more than these
cometh of evil$
6:
?e have heard that it hath been said, %n eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth4
6;
But D say unto you, !hat ye resist not evil4 but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right
cheek, turn to him the other also$
7=
%nd if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak
also$
7<
%nd whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain$
75
*ive to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou
away$
76
?e have heard that it hath been said, !hou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine
enemy$
77
But D say unto you, 'ove your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that
hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute youB
7#
!hat ye may be the children of your Cather which is in heaven4 for he maketh his sun to
rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the .ust and on the un.ust$
78
Cor if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye@ do not even the publicans the
same@
79
%nd if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others@ do not even the
publicans so@

is no longer good for anything e>cept to be thrown out and trampled on by people$
<7 3?ou are light for the world$ % city cannot be hidden when it is located on a hill$ <#
Ao one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket$ Dnstead, everyone who lights a lamp puts
it on a lamp stand$ !hen its light shines on everyone in the house$ <8 Dn the same way let
your light shine in front of people$ !hen they will see the good that you do and praise
your Cather in heaven$
Jesus Fulfills the %ld Testament +criptures
<9 3,onIt ever think that D came to set aside osesI !eachings or the Erophets$ D didnIt
come to set them aside but to make them come true$ <: D can guarantee this truth4 Until
the earth and the heavens disappear, neither a period nor a comma will disappear from the
Scriptures before everything has come true$ <; So whoever sets aside any command that
seems unimportant and teaches others to do the same will be unimportant in the kingdom
of heaven$ But whoever does and teaches what the commands say will be called great in
the kingdom of heaven$ 5= D can guarantee that unless you live a life that has *odIs
approval and do it more faithfully than the e>perts in osesI !eachings and Eharisees,
you will never enter the kingdom of heaven$
Jesus Tal*s ab!ut 5ner
5< 3?ou have heard that it was said to your ancestors, KAever murder$ -hoever murders
will answer for it in court$I 55 But D can guarantee that whoever is angry with another
believerLaM will answer for it in court$ -hoever calls another believer an insulting name
will answer for it in the highest court$ -hoever calls another believer a fool will answer
for it in hellfire$
56 3So if you are offering your gift at the altar and remember there that another believer
has something against you, 57 leave your gift at the altar$ Cirst go away and make peace
with that person$ !hen come back and offer your gift$
5# 3ake peace Fuickly with your opponent while you are on the way to court with him$
+therwise, he will hand you over to the .udge$ !hen the .udge will hand you over to an
officer, who will throw you into prison$ 58 D can guarantee this truth4 ?ou will never get
out until you pay every penny of your fine$
5b!ut +e-ual +in
59 3?ou have heard that it was said, KAever commit adultery$I 5: But D can guarantee that
whoever looks with lust at a woman has already committed adultery in his heart$
5; 3So if your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away$ Dt is better for
you to lose a part of your body than to have all of it thrown into hell$ 6= %nd if your right
hand leads you to sin, cut it off and throw it away$ Dt is better for you to lose a part of
your body than to have all of it go into hell$
6< 3Dt has also been said, K-hoever divorces his wife must give her a written notice$I 65
But D can guarantee that any man who divorces his wife for any reason other than
unfaithfulness makes her look as though she has committed adultery$ -hoever marries a
woman divorced in this way makes himself look as though he has committed adultery$
5b!ut %aths
66 3?ou have heard that it was said to your ancestors, KAever break your oath, but give to
the 'ord what you swore in an oath to give him$I 67 But D tell you donIt swear an oath at
all$ ,onIt swear an oath by heaven, which is *odIs throne, 6# or by the earth, which is
his footstool, or by Jerusalem, which is the city of the great /ing$ 68 %nd donIt swear an
oath by your head$ %fter all, you cannot make one hair black or white$ 69 Simply say yes
or no$ %nything more than that comes from the evil one$

tell you not to oppose an evil person$ Df someone slaps you on your right cheek, turn your
other cheek to him as well$ 7= Df someone wants to sue you in order to take your shirt, let
him have your coat too$ 7< Df someone forces you to go one mile, go two miles with him$
75 *ive to everyone who asks you for something$ ,onIt turn anyone away who wants to
borrow something from you$
76 3?ou have heard that it was said, K'ove your neighbor, and hate your enemy$I 77 But D
