Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Mark 9:43

_ _ And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell — See Matthew 5:29, Matthew 5:30. The only difference between the words there and here is that there they refer to impure inclinations; here, to an ambitious disposition, an irascible or quarrelsome temper, and the like: and the injunction is to strike at the root of such dispositions and cut off the occasions of them.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Mark 9:41-50.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Mark 9:43

And if a person cause thee to offend — (The discourse passes from the case of offending, to that of being offended) if one who is as useful or dear to thee as a hand or eye, hinder or slacken thee in the ways of Cod, renounce all intercourse with him. This primarily relates to persons, secondarily to things. Matthew 5:29; Matthew 18:8.
