Main point summary
No one can submit to the law of Christ and speak evil against his neighbor. Therefore, we should not speak evil to one another, for what would that mean for us?
Μὴ καταλαλεῖτε ἀλλήλων,
m Do not speak evil against one another,
ὁ καταλαλῶν ἀδελφοῦ ἢ κρίνων τὸν ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ
The one who speaks against a brother or n judges his brother,
καταλαλεῖ νόμου καὶ κρίνει νόμον•
speaks evil against the law and judges the law.
εἰ δὲ νόμον κρίνεις ,
But if you judge the law,
οὐκ εἶ ποιητὴς νόμου ἀλλὰ κριτής.
you are not a doer of the law but a judge.
εἷς ἐστιν [ὁ] νομοθέτης καὶ κριτὴς
There is only o one lawgiver and p judge,
ὁ δυνάμενος σῶσαι καὶ ἀπολέσαι •
he who is able to save and q to destroy.
σὺ δὲ τίς εἶ ὁ κρίνων τὸν πλησίον;
But r who are you to judge your neighbor?
