Matthew 5 ©
Christ beginneth his sermon upon the mount, declaring who are blessed: he calleth his disciples the salt of the earth, the light of the world, and urgeth upon them the necessity of setting a good example. He came not to destroy, but to fulfil, the law. He extendeth the precepts against murder, adultery, and false swearing: exhorteth to suffer wrong patiently, to love our enemies, and to aim at perfection.
wWhosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the xkingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be ycalled great in the kingdom of heaven.
But cI say unto you, That dwhosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, 3Raca, shall be in danger of ethe council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
gAgree with thine *adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.
Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.
And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him *twain.
