43¬† Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
44¬† 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;
45¬† 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.
46¬† For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye?¬† do not even the publicans the same?
47¬† And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others?¬† do not even the publicans so?
48¬† Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
