Blessed are ye when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you [from them], and shall reproach [you], and cast out your name as wicked, for the Son of man's sake:
rejoice in that day and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in the heaven, for after this manner did their fathers act toward the prophets.
But woe to you rich, for ye have received your consolation.
Woe to you that are filled, for ye shall hunger. Woe to you who laugh now, for ye shall mourn and weep.
Woe, when all men speak well of you, for after this manner did their fathers to the false prophets.
But to you that hear I say, Love your enemies; do good to those that hate you;
bless those that curse you; pray for those who use you despitefully.
To him that smites thee on the cheek, offer also the other; and from him that would take away thy garment, forbid not thy body-coat also.
To every one that asks of thee, give; and from him that takes away what is thine, ask it not back.
And as ye wish that men should do to you, do *ye* also to them in like manner.
And if ye love those that love you, what thank is it to you? for even sinners love those that love them.
