[44 where

Their worm does not die,
and the fire is not quenched.][a](A)[b]

45 And if your foot causes your downfall,(B) cut it off. It is better for you to enter life lame(C) than to have two feet and be thrown into hell— [the unquenchable fire,(D) 46 where

Their worm does not die,
and the fire is not quenched.][c](E)[d]

47 And if your eye causes your downfall, gouge it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God(F) with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown(G) into hell,(H) 48 where

Their worm does not die,
and the fire is not quenched.[e]
