"Blessed are you when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from them and reproach you, and throw out your name as evil, for the Son of Man's sake.
Rejoice in that day, and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven, for their fathers did the same thing to the prophets.
"But woe to you who are rich! For you have received your consolation.
"Woe to you, you who are full now! For you will be hungry. "Woe to you, you who laugh now! For you will mourn and weep.
"Woe, when men will speak well of you! For their fathers did the same thing to the false prophets.
But I tell you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,
bless those who curse you, and pray for those who insult you.
To him who strikes you on the cheek, offer also the other; and from him who takes away your cloak, don't withhold your coat also.
Give to everyone who asks you, and don't ask him who takes away your goods to give them back again.
"As you desire that men should do to you, likewise do to them also.
If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them.
