21 “You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘You shall not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ 22 But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca,’[a] is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.
23 “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the Altar[b] and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, 24 leave your gift there in front of the Altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.
[a] An Aramaic term of contempt
