Be merciful,1 just as your Father2 is merciful.
"Do not judge, and you will not be judged.3 Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.4
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap.5 For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."6
