And if your right hand causes you to fall away, cut it off and throw it away from you, because it is better for you to lose one of your body parts than for your whole body to go into Gehenna. Bible see other translations

“cut it off.” This is the figure of speech hyperbole (see commentary on Matt. 5:30).

“Gehenna.” See commentary on Matthew 5:22.
