Passage
Adultery 27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘ Do not commit adultery .’ 38 28 But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to desire her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 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. 39 30 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.
notes
Main point summary
Jesus corrected the people's misunderstanding of adultery as that which is confined to a physical sexual intercourse with the spouse of another to one that includes even sexual lust towards anyone. So serious is the penalty for violating the commandment against adultery, i.e., damnation in hell, that Jesus strongly urges his listeners to do whatever is necessary in order to escape this judgment.
