“You have heard that it was said, * ‘You shall not commit adultery;’* but I tell you that everyone who gazes at a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart. If your right eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out and throw it away from you. For it is more profitable for you that one of your members should perish, than for your whole body to be cast into Gehenna. If your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off, and throw it away from you. For it is more profitable for you that one of your members should perish, than for your whole body to be cast into Gehenna.                “It was also said, ‘Whoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorce,’* but I tell you that whoever puts away his wife, except for the cause of sexual immorality, makes her an adulteress; and whoever marries her when she is put away commits adultery.                “Again you have heard that it was said to them of old time, ‘You shall not make false vows, but shall perform to the Lord your vows,’ but I tell you, don’t swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is the throne of God; nor by the earth, for it is the footstool of his feet; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. Neither shall you swear by your head, for you can’t make one hair white or black. But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes’ and your ‘No’ be ‘No.’ Whatever is more than these is of the evil one.                “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.’* But I tell you, don’t resist him who is evil; but whoever strikes you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also. If anyone sues you to take away your coat, let him have your cloak also. Whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks you, and don’t turn away him who desires to borrow from you.                “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor,* and hate your enemy.*’ But I tell you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who mistreat you and persecute you, that you may be children of your Father who is in heaven.

Quotations about temptations
   

Watch and pray, that you don't enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Matthew 26:41


True peace of heart, then, is found in resisting passions, not in satisfying them.

There is no peace in the carnal man, in the man given to vain attractions, but there is peace in the fervent and spiritual man.

Thomas À Kempis


Turn away your eye from a comely woman, And gaze not on another's beauty: By the beauty of a woman many have been led astray; And herewith love is kindled as a fire.

The Wisdom of Jesus the Son of Sirach 9:8


Make not merry in much luxury; Neither be tied to the expense thereof.

The Wisdom of Jesus the Son of Sirach 18:32


Go not after your lusts; And refrain yourself from your appetites.

The Wisdom of Jesus the Son of Sirach 18:30


Blessed is he whose soul does not condemn him...

The Wisdom of Jesus the Son of Sirach 14:2


But there was none like Ahab, who sold himself to do that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh, whom Jezebel his wife stirred up.

The First Book of Kings 21:25
