25Woe to you who are well fed now, for you will go hungry.1 Woe to you who laugh now, for you will mourn and weep.226Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for that is how their fathers treated the false prophets.3
27"But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,428bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.529If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic.30Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back.631Do to others as you would have them do to you.732"If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you?8 Even 'sinners' love those who love them.33And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' do that.34And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you?9 Even 'sinners' lend to 'sinners,' expecting to be repaid in full.35But love your enemies, do good to them,10 and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons11 of the Most High,12 because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.
