Context
Anger

21You have heard that it was said of them of old time, You shall not kill; and whoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: 22But I say to you, That whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whoever shall say, You fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. 23Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has ought against you; 24Leave there your gift before the altar, and go your way; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift. 25Agree with your adversary quickly, whiles you are in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver you to the judge, and the judge deliver you to the officer, and you be cast into prison. 26Truly I say to you, You shall by no means come out there, till you have paid the uttermost farthing.
