'Now it was said, ‘WHOEVER SENDS HIS WIFE AWAY IS TO GIVE HER A CERTIFICATE OF DIVORCE’;
but I say to you that everyone whodivorces his wife, except for the
reason of sexual immorality, makes her commit adultery; and whoever marries adivorced woman commits adultery.
'Again, you have heard that the ancients were told, ‘ YOU SHALL NOT MAKE FALSE VOWS, BUT SHALL FULFILL YOUR VOWS TO THE LORD.’
But I say to you, take no oath at all, neither by heaven, for it is the throne of God,
nor by the earth, for it is the footstool of His feet, norby Jerusalem, for it is THE CITY OF THE GREAT KING.
Nor shall you take an oath by your head, for you cannot make a single hair white or black.
But make sure your statement is, ‘Yes, yes’ or
‘No, no’; anything beyond these isof evil origin.
'You have heard that it was said, ‘EYE FOR EYE, and TOOTH FOR TOOTH.’
But I say to you, do not show opposition against an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other toward him also.
