21 “You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘You shall not murder, # 21 Exodus 20:13 and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ 22But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister#22 The Greek word for brother or sister (adelphos) refers here to a fellow disciple, whether man or woman; also in verse 23.#22 Some manuscripts brother or sister without cause will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca,’#22 An Aramaic term of contempt is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.
