People's Bible Notes for Matthew 5:27


Mt 5:27,28 Thou shalt not commit adultery. The Jewish rabbis held that a man was guiltless who did not commit the act. Christ, as he always did, lays the laws upon the heart. If it is impure, full of unholy desires, one is guilty. It is our duty to keep the heart pure.

    Sabra: when we were kids we would tell a story and swear by our mothers grave or that Lightning would strike us down, if it's a lie. I'll curse you with the fleas of a thousand camels if you don't believe me! Adults do the same. I swear I would never---! They say these things to make it more believable. That's what Peter was doing, not using foul language.
    We can just say yes or no.

    Hello, Sabra Matt.5:36 is by scripture that it is above mankind pay grade to sware by anything. V37 explains that fact. Which said, But let your words be Yea, yea; Nay, nay what is more than these is from evil DBT. The biblical experts say let the Bible interpret the Bible. Glory to GOD in the highest. Amen!
