Raca

Additional Links

A word derived from a Hebrew word signifying vain, trifling, brainless; otherwise, beggarly, worthless. It is thus translated by the Vulgate, in Judges 11:3; in the English, "vain men." The word includes a strong idea of contempt. Christ says, Matthew 5:22 , whoever shall say to his brother, "Raca," shall be condemned by the council, or sanhedrim. The term translated "fool" in the same passage, means vile and abandoned wretch.
