Matthew 5:38-47 NAS
heard that it was said, 'AN EYE FOR AN EYE, AND A TOOTH FOR A
TOOTH.' But I say to you, do not resist an evil person;; but whoever
slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. If anyone
wants to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also.
Whoever forces you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who
asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from
have heard that it was said, 'YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR and hate
your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those
who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in
heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends
rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. For if you love those who
love you, what reward do you have: Do not even the tax collectors do
the same? If you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than
others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? Therefore
you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect."
