ContextLove Your Enemies
27But I say to you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, 28Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which spitefully use you. 29And to him that smites you on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that takes away your cloak forbid not to take your coat also. 30Give to every man that asks of you; and of him that takes away your goods ask them not again. 31And as you would that men should do to you, do you also to them likewise. 32For if you love them which love you, what thank have you? for sinners also love those that love them. 33And if you do good to them which do good to you, what thank have you? for sinners also do even the same. 34And if you lend to them of whom you hope to receive, what thank have you? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. 35But love you your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and you shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind to the unthankful and to the evil. 36Be you therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
