 57 And why do you not judge for yourselves what is right?

 58 When you go with your accuser to the magistrate, make a diligent effort along the way to settle with him, lest he drag you to the judge, and the judge deliver you to the officer, and the officer throw you into prison. [Jesus uses prison as a metaphor for Hell; he is pleading for men to do right and warning them of the consequences of doing wrong.]
