18 Revised Standard Version Passage

6but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin Greek: causes ... to stumble, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened round his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea. 
7"Woe to the world for temptations to sin! Greek: stumbling blocks For it is necessary that temptations come, but woe to the man by whom the temptation comes! 
8And if your hand or your foot causes you to sin Greek: causes ... to stumble, cut it off and throw it away; it is better for you to enter life maimed or lame than with two hands or two feet to be thrown into the eternal fire. 
9And if your eye causes you to sin Greek: causes ... to stumble, pluck it out and throw it away; it is better for you to enter life with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into the hell Greek: Gehenna of fire.
