28 But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
31 "It was also said, 'Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.'

23 And then will I declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.'

15 "If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother.
16 But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses.

40 On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets."
41 Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them a question,

30 who will not receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and in the age to come eternal life.
