27 You have heard that it was said to the ancients: 'You shall not commit adultery.'
28 But I say to you, that anyone who will have looked at a woman, so as to lust after her, has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
29 And if your right eye causes you to sin, root it out and cast it away from you. For it is better for you that one of your members perish, than that your whole body be cast into Hell.
30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it away from you. For it is better for you that one of your members perish, than that your whole body go into Hell.
31 And it has been said: 'Whoever would dismiss his wife, let him give her a bill of divorce.'
32 But I say to you, that anyone who will have dismissed his wife, except in the case of fornication, causes her to commit adultery; and whoever will have married her who has been dismissed commits adultery.
2 Corinthians 4:7-15
7 But we hold this treasure in earthen vessels, so that what is sublime may be of the power of God, and not of us.
8 In all things, we endure tribulation, yet we are not in anguish. We are constrained, yet we are not destitute.
9 We suffer persecution, yet we have not been abandoned. We are thrown down, yet we do not perish.
10 We ever carry around the mortification of Jesus in our bodies, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies.
11 For we who live are ever handed over unto death for the sake of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our mortal flesh.
12 Therefore, death is at work in us, and life is at work in you.
13 But we have the same Spirit of faith. And just as it is written, "I believed, and for that reason I spoke," so we also believe, and for that reason, we also speak.
14 For we know that the One who raised up Jesus will raise us up also with Jesus and will place us with you.
15 Thus, all is for you, so that grace, abounding through many in thanksgiving, may abound to the glory of God.
