You must not murder.

Hatred As Murder  1 John 3:15 NLT

Anyone who hates another brother or sister is really a murderer at heart. And you know that murderers don’t have eternal life within them.

Anger As Murder  Matthew 5:21-22 NKJV

You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder, and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.’ 22 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.

Proverbs 18:21 NKJV

Unacceptable Worship  Matthew 5:23-24 NLT

So if you are presenting a sacrifice at the altar in the Temple and you suddenly remember that someone has something against you, 24 leave your sacrifice there at the altar. Go and be reconciled to that person. Then come and offer your sacrifice to God.

Love That Conquers Hatred  Matthew 5:43-45 NKJV

You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, 45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven.

Don't Give In To Anger  Ephesians 4:26-27 NLT

And “don’t sin by letting anger control you.” Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27 for anger gives a foothold to the devil.
