Mt 5:20-26 -- Murder - Il-Korla (anger)

.

20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.

Murder

21 “You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘You shall not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.’ 22 But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca,’ is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell.
23 “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, 24 leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.
25 “Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still together on the way, or your adversary may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. 26 Truly I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.

[Mt:5:20] "Ngħidilkom li, jekk il-ħajja tajba tagħkom ma tkunx ħafna aħjar minn dik tal-kittieba u l-Fariżej, ma tidħlux fis-Saltna tas-Smewwiet.

Il-korla (Lq 12, 57-59)

[Mt:5:21] "Smajtu xi ntqal lin-nies ta' dari, 'La toqtolx.' Mela jekk xi ħadd joqtol ikun ħaqqu l-kundanna. [Mt:5:22] Imma jien ngħidilkom li l-kundanna tistħoqq ukoll lil min jinkorla għal ħuh. Jekk imbagħad xi ħadd lil ħuh jgħidlu, 'Ġifa', ikun ħaqqu l-kundanna tas-Sinedriju; u jekk jgħidlu, 'Iblah', ikun ħaqqu n-nar ta' l-infern. [Mt:5:23] Mela jekk tkun qiegħed ittalla' l-offerta tiegħek fuq l-altar u hemm tiftakar li ħuk għandu xi ħaġa kontra tiegħek, [Mt:5:24] ħalli l-offerta tiegħek hemmhekk quddiem l-altar u mur l-ewwel irranġa ma' ħuk, u mbagħad ejja talla' l-offerta tiegħek. [Mt:5:25] Lil min ikun se jtellgħek il-qorti ħudu bil-kelma t-tajba mill-aktar fis waqt li tkun għadek miegħu fit-triq, li ma jmurx jagħtik f'idejn l-imħallef, u l-imħallef f'idejn l-għassies, u hekk issib ruħek fil-ħabs. [Mt:5:26] Tassew ngħidlek, minn hemm ġew ma toħroġx qabel ma tkun ħallast l-aħħar tliet ħabbiet.
