Blessed shall you be when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you and shall reproach you and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.
Be glad in that day and rejoice: for behold, your reward is great in heaven, For according to these things did their fathers to the prophets.
But woe to you that are rich: for you have your consolation.
Woe to you that are filled: for you shall hunger. Woe to you that now laugh: for you shall mourn and weep.
Woe to you when men shall bless you: for according to these things did their fathers to the false prophets.
But I say to you that hear: Love your enemies. Do good to them that hate you.
Bless them that curse you and pray for them that calumniate you.
And to him that striketh thee on the one cheek, offer also the other. And him that taketh away from thee thy cloak, forbid not to take thy coat also.
Give to every one that asketh thee: and of him that taketh away thy goods, ask them not again.
And as you would that men should do to you, do you also to them in like manner.
And if you love them that love you, what thanks are to you? For sinners also love those that love them.
