Matthew 5:22-26 American Standard Version (ASV)

22 but I say unto you, that every one who is angry with his brother [a]shall be in danger of the judgment; and whosoever shall say to his brother, [b]Raca, shall be in danger of the council; and whosoever shall say, [c]Thou fool, shall be in danger [d]of the [e]hell of fire. 23 If therefore thou art offering thy gift at the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath aught against thee, 24 leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way, first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. 25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, while thou art with him in the way; lest haply the adversary [f]deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. 26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou have paid the last farthing.
