Blessed are you when people hate you, when they exclude you, insult you, and slander your name as evil, because of the Son of Man.
"Rejoice in that day and leap for joy! Take note-your reward is great in heaven, because this is the way their ancestors used to treat the prophets.
But woe to you who are rich, because you have received your comfort.
Woe to you who are full now, because you will be hungry. Woe to you a who are laughing now, because you will mourn and weep.
Woe to you b when all people speak well of you, because this is the way their ancestors used to treat the false prophets.
"But I say to you who listen: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,
bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.
If anyone hits you on the cheek, offer the other also. And if anyone takes away your coat, don't hold back your shirt either.
Give to everyone who asks from you, and from one who takes away your things, don't ask for them back.
Just as you want others to do for you, do the same for them.
If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them.
