If thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, Matt. 5:29. Whosoever shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better that he were drowned in the sea, Matt. 18:6 (D&C 121:19–22). If thy brother or sister offend thee and confess, thou shalt be reconciled, D&C 42:88. In nothing does man offend God, save those who confess not his hand and obey not his commandments, D&C 59:21.
