38And John was saying to him, "Teacher, we saw a certain person, in your name, casting out demons, and we were trying to prevent him, because he wasn’t following us." 39And Jesus said, "Don’t prevent him, for no one who does a work of power in my name will be able quickly to speak evil of me. 40For the who is not against us, he is for us. 41For whoever might give you a cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ, amen I say to you, that person will absolutely not lose his reward.
42"And whoever might cause to stumble one of these little ones who trust in me, it’s better for him to have a millstone put around his neck and to have him cast into the sea. 43And if your hand might cause you to stumble, then cut it off. It’s better for you to enter into the life disabled than having two hands, to go down into Gehenna, into the fire unquenchable. 45And if your foot might cause you to stumble, they cut it off. It’s better for you to enter into the life lame than having two feet, to be thrown into Gehenna. 47And if your eye causes you to stumble, then cast it out. It’s better with one eye to enter into the Kingdom of God, than having two eyes, to be thrown into Gehenna, 48where their worm doesn’t come to an end and the fire isn’t put out. 49For everyone will be salted with fire. 50Salt is good. But if the salt has become unsalty, then in what way will you season it? Have salt within yourselves, and live in peace with others.
