Matthew 5:38-48

38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ 

39 But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person.

If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.

40 And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic,

let him have your cloak as well.

41 If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles.

42 Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn

away from the one who wants to borrow from you.

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor

and hate your enemy.’

44 But I tell you: Love your enemies and

pray for those who persecute you,

45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven.

He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good,

and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get?

Are not even the tax collectors doing that?

47 And if you greet only your brothers, what are you

doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?

48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly

Father is perfect.
