21 “You have heard that it was said
to the people long ago, ‘Do not murder, and
anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ 22
But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment.
Again, anyone who says to his brother, ‘Raca,’ is
answerable to the Sanhedrin. But anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will
be in danger of the fire of hell.
New International Version 1984 (NIV1984)
23 “Therefore, if you are offering
your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has
something against you, 24 leave your
gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to
your brother; then come and offer your gift.
