those of old, ‘You shall not
murder; and whoever murders will
be liable to judgment.’ But I say
to you that everyone who is angry
with his brother will be liable to
judgment; whoever insults his
brother will be liable to the
council; and whoever says, ‘You

Now the works of the flesh are
evident: sexual immorality,
impurity, sensuality, idolatry,
sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy,
fits of anger, rivalries,
dissensions, divisions, envy,
drunkenness, orgies, and things
like these. I warn you, as I
warned you before, that those who
do such things will not inherit
the kingdom of God. But the fruit
of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,
patience, kindness, goodness,
self-control; against such things
there is no law. ...
