16 (A)Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your father which is in heaven.

17 [a]Think not that I am come to destroy the Law, or the Prophets. I am not come to destroy them, but to [b]fulfill them.

18 (B)For truly I say unto you, Till heaven and earth perish, one jot or one tittle of the Law shall not escape, till all things be fulfilled.

Footnotes

  1. Matthew 5:17 Christ came not to bring any new way of righteousness and salvation into the world, but to fulfill that in deed which was shadowed by the figures of the Law, by delivering men through grace from the curse of the Law: and moreover to teach the true use of obedience which the Law appointed, and to engrave in our hearts the force of obedience.
  2. Matthew 5:17 That the prophecies may be accomplished.
