- Youngs Literal Bible
5:23 Thy brother hath aught against thee - On any of the preceding accounts: for any unkind thought or word: any that did not spring from love.
Mt 5:23 Therefore if thou shalt bring thy gift to the altar. This springs immediately out of the modification of the law, Thou shalt not kill, which required that there should be no anger with a brother. If about to offer a gift on the altar, and the remembrance comes that a brother hath aught against thee, leave the gift, go and make it right with him, and then offer thy gift. This shows that one guilty of wrongs to his fellow-man cannot offer acceptable worship of God.

I am studding and searching for scripture to help me deal with not being in a friendly place with my husband. I have forgiven him in my heart because I love him, but I am unable to relate or be close to him, because I find that I think I am owed an apology from him for telling me to kiss his a** during an argument we had. I think he was wrong and he needs him to make it right in order to bring us back together, instead of taking the ungodly man's approach 'which would be to wait until enough time has p***ed for me to get over it and forget. I need him to own what he did/said and make it right so that I can forget.

The Lord wants us to be in fellowship one with another. If we have hatred in our heart toward our brother, we cannot give a gift to God, until we have restored the relationship with our brother. Jesus said a new commandment give I unto you, that you love one another as I have loved you. Pray for one another, and confess your faults to one another so that you can be healed.
