Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 5:30

_ _ And if thy right hand — the organ of action, to which the eye excites.

_ _ offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee; for it is profitable, etc. — See on Matthew 5:29. The repetition, in identical terms, of such stern truths and awful lessons seems characteristic of our Lord’s manner of teaching. Compare Mark 9:43-48.
