Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the LORD shall reward thee.
If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink:
Lest the LORD see [it], and it displease him, and he turn away his wrath from him.
Rejoice not when thine enemy falleth, and let not thine heart be glad when he stumbleth:
And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness [and] of thy praise all the day long.
Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that rejoice at mine hurt: let them be clothed with shame and dishonour that magnify [themselves] against me.
And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more [than others]? do not even the publicans so?
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.
Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and [to] the evil.
And if ye lend [to them] of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.
And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.
For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.
And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.
Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask [them] not again.
And unto him that smiteth thee on the [one] cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not [to take thy] coat also.
Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you,
Let them not say in their hearts, Ah, so would we have it: let them not say, We have swallowed him up.
Judge me, O LORD my God, according to thy righteousness; and let them not rejoice over me.
Stir up thyself, and awake to my judgment, [even] unto my cause, my God and my Lord.
And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD: it shall rejoice in his salvation.
Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall.
For without cause have they hid for me their net [in] a pit, [which] without cause they have digged for my soul.
Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of the LORD persecute them.
Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the LORD chase [them].
Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.
Draw out also the spear, and stop [the way] against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I [am] thy salvation.
Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.
<[A Psalm] of David.> Plead [my cause], O LORD, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me.
Neither have I suffered my mouth to sin by wishing a curse to his soul.
If I rejoiced at the destruction of him that hated me, or lifted up myself when evil found him:
All my bones shall say, LORD, who [is] like unto thee, which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?
False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge [things] that I knew not.
[This] thou hast seen, O LORD: keep not silence: O Lord, be not far from me.
Yea, they opened their mouth wide against me, [and] said, Aha, aha, our eye hath seen [it].
For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters against [them that are] quiet in the land.
Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: [neither] let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause.
I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will praise thee among much people.
Lord, how long wilt thou look on? rescue my soul from their destructions, my darling from the lions.
With hypocritical mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me with their teeth.
But in mine adversity they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together: [yea], the abjects gathered themselves together against me, and I knew [it] not; they did tear [me], and ceased not:
I behaved myself as though [he had been] my friend [or] brother: I bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth [for his] mother.
But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing [was] sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.
They rewarded me evil for good [to] the spoiling of my soul.
If thou see the ass of him that hateth thee lying under his burden, and wouldest forbear to help him, thou shalt surely help with him.
