1st Corinthians 6:9
The following are a few words that have a good and a bad meaning, and hence their literal meaning isn't always meant. The Aramaic word row-ba can have a good meaning of "sound, shouting" (Rev. 21:4 Crawford; 2 Ki. 11:13) or a bad meaning of "clamor" (Eph. 4:31; Judith 6:1). The Aramaic word yaṣ-ra can have the good meaning of "disposition, inclination, bent" (Deut. 31:21) and the bad meaning of "the bad disposition [inclination, bent]" (4 Macc. 3:4). Ḥsa-ma can mean "zeal, competition" and "jealousy, envy, a grudge."
