New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
43 "You have heard that the law of Moses says, 'Love your neighbor' and hate your enemy. 43 "You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.'
44 But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! 44 But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
45 In that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven. For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends rain on the just and on the unjust, too. 45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
