And if you do good to them who do good to you, what thanks are to you? For sinners also do this.
And if you lend to them of whom you hope to receive, what thanks are to you? For sinners also lend to sinners, for to receive as much.

Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
Judge not: and you shall not be judged. Condemn not: and you shall not be condemned. Forgive: and you shall be forgiven.
Give: and it shall be given to you: good measure and pressed down and shaken together and running over shall they give into your bosom. For with the same measure that you shall mete withal, it shall be measured to you again.

And why seest thou the mote in thy brother’s eye: but the beam that is in thy own eye thou considerest not?
Or how canst thou say to thy brother: Brother, let me pull the mote out of thy eye, when thou thyself seest not the beam in thy own eye? Hypocrite, cast first the beam out of thy own eye: and then shalt thou see clearly to take out the mote from thy brother’s eye.
For there is no good tree that bringeth forth evil fruit: nor an evil tree that bringeth forth good fruit.
