Matthew 5:22 New International Version

22 But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister[1][2] will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, 'Raca,'[3] is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, 'You fool!' will be in danger of the fire of hell.


[1] 5:22 The Greek word for "brother or sister" ("adelphos" ) refers here to a fellow disciple, whether man or woman; also in verse 23.

[2] 5:22 Some manuscripts "brother or sister without cause"

[3] 5:22 An Aramaic term of contempt
