(43) “If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed, rather than having two hands, to go to hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched; (44) “where ‘Their worm does not die, And the fire is not quenched.’ (45) “And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life lame, rather than having two feet, to be cast into hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched; (46) “where ‘Their worm does not die, And the fire is not quenched.’ (47) “And if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire; (48) “where ‘Their worm does not die, And the fire is not quenched.’ (49) “For everyone will be seasoned with fire, and every sacrifice will be seasoned with salt. (50) “Salt is good, but if the salt loses its flavor, how will you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace with one another.” (NKJV)
