Matthew 7:12

That men should do unto you (ina poiwsin mn oi anqrwpoi). Luke ( Luke 6:31 ) puts the Golden Rule parallel with Matthew 5:42 . The negative form is in Tobit 4:15. It was used by Hillel, Philo, Isocrates, Confucius. "The Golden Rule is the distilled essence of that 'fulfilment' ( Matthew 5:17 ) which is taught in the sermon" (McNeile). Jesus puts it in positive form.
