Matthew 5:19-21 The Passion Translation (TPT)

19 So whoever violates[a] even the least important of the commandments,[b] and teaches others to do so, will be the least esteemed in the realm of heaven’s kingdom. But whoever obeys them and teaches their truths to others will be greatly esteemed in the realm of heaven’s kingdom. 20 For I tell you, unless your lives are more pure and full of integrity[c] than the religious scholars[d] and the Pharisees you will never experience the realm of heaven’s kingdom.”

Anger

21 “You’re familiar with the commandment that the older generation was taught, ‘Do not murder or you will be judged.’[e]
