THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Matthew (Author Matthew)

5:43Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

5:44But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

5:45That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

5:46For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?

5:47And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?

5:48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Luke (Author Luke)

6:20And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.

6:21Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.

6:22Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.

6:23Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.

6:24But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation.

6:25Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep.

6:26Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.

6:27But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,

6:28Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.

6:29And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also.

6:30Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.

6:31And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.

6:32For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.

6:33And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.

6:34And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.

6:35But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

6:36Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
