Luke 6:34

34 If you lend to those from whom you hope to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, to receive as much again.

Luke 6:34 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 6:34

And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive
The same again, as from their brethren the Jews; or usury, as from the Gentiles:

what thank have ye?
and yet they looked upon this, in the first instance of it, as a very great kindness, and act of goodness, as appears from the above citation:

for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again;
or "what is equal", and answerable to what they have lent them; that is, the same, or what is equivalent to it.

Luke 6:34 In-Context

32 "If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them.
33 If you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same.
34 If you lend to those from whom you hope to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, to receive as much again.
35 But love your enemies, do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return. Your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High; for he is kind to the ungrateful and the wicked.
36 Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
