NLTNew Living Translation
22But I say, if you are even angry with someone,# Some manuscripts add without cause. you are subject to judgment! If you call someone an idiot,# Greek uses an Aramaic term of contempt: If you say to your brother, ‘Raca.’ you are in danger of being brought before the court. And if you curse someone,# Greek if you say, ‘You fool.’ you are in danger of the fires of hell.# Greek Gehenna; also in 5:29, 30.
