Matthew 5:22

Greek/English Interlinear with Strong’s Numbers


King James Version

But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
New King James Version

But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca!’ shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire.
New American Standard Bible

“But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother (some, without cause) shall be guilty before (liable to) the court; and whoever shall say to his brother, ‘Raca’ (Aramaic, empty-headed or good for nothing), shall be guilty before the supreme court (literally, the Sanhedrin); and whoever shall say, ‘You fool,’ shall be guilty (liable) enough to go into the fiery hell (literally, Gehenna of fire).
New International Version

But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother (some, without cause) will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to his brother ‘Raca’ (an Aramaic term of contempt), is answerable to the Sanhedrin. But anyone who says ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.
The Amplified Bible

But I say to you that everyone who continues to be angry (some, without cause) with his brother or harbors malice (enmity of heart) against him shall be liable to and unable to escape the punishment imposed by the court; and whoever speaks contemptuously and insultingly to his brother shall be liable to and unable to escape the punishment imposed by the Sanhedrin, and whoever says, You cursed fool! [You empty-headed idiot]! shall be liable to and unable to escape the hell (Gehenna) of fire.
Wuest’s Expanded Translation

But, as for Myself, I am saying to you that everyone who is provoked to anger against his brother shall be subject to the judgment. Moreover, whoever says to his brother, Raca, that is, you senseless empty-head, shall be liable to the Sanhedrin. But whoever shall say, More, that is, you imprudent man without forethought or wisdom, shall be liable to the hell of fire.
Phillips’ Modern English

But I say to you that anyone who is angry with his brother must stand his trial; anyone who contemptuously calls his brother a fool must face the supreme court; and anyone who looks down on his brother as a lost soul is himself heading straight for the fire of destruction.
Williams’ Language of the People

But I say to you: “Everyone who harbors malice against his brother will have to answer to the court, and whoever speaks contemptuously to his brother, will have to answer the supreme court; and whoever says to his brother, ‘You cursed fool!’ will have to pay the penalty in the pit of torture.

  1. 7. Going to the Source; Poverty in the Body of Christ - Neil Girrard God sees things as they truly are - light or dark, truth or error, spirit or flesh, life or death, love or selfishness.

  3. The Keeping of the Sabbath - Neil Girrard The Sabbath law has been abolished along with every other law, right?

  4. The Standard of Perfection - Neil Girrard - ( in Adobe/pdf format ) Jesus said that we should be perfect as our heavenly Father is perfect – so why aren’t we perfect?
