5 Revised Standard Version Passage

27"You have heard that it was said, 'You shall not commit adultery.'Teaching about Adultery Mt.5.27-30 (Galilee)
28But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 
29If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and throw it away; it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell Greek: Gehenna. 
30And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away; it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell Greek: Gehenna.
