And if your eye causes you to fall away, pluck it out and throw it away from you. It is better for you to enter into the Life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be thrown into the fire of Gehenna. Bible other translations

“fire of Gehenna.” The Greek is literally, “the Gehenna of the fire,” which could be more literally understood as “the Gehenna which has the fire,” or we would say, “the fire of Gehenna.” See commentary on Matthew 5:22. [For information on annihilation in the lake of fire, see Appendix 5: “Annihilation in the Lake of Fire”.]

“the Life.” This refers to “everlasting life”. See commentary on Luke 10:28.
