You snakes, you offspring of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell?
For if God did not spare the angels who sinned,
If your foot causes you to sin, cut it off! It is better to enter life lame than to have
If your eye causes you to sin, tear it out!
But I will warn
And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye than to have
And the tongue is a fire! The tongue represents
If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away! It is better to lose one of your members than to have your whole body thrown into hell.
If your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away! It is better to lose one of your members than to have your whole body go into hell.
“Woe to you, experts in the law
If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off! It is better for you to enter into life crippled than to have
The ropes of Sheol
The ropes of Sheol tightened around me,
Her house is the way to the grave,
But I say to you that anyone who is angry with a brother
And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades
And in hell,
The wicked are turned back and sent to Sheol;
Her feet go down to death; her steps lead straight to the grave.
