Be Ye Therefore Perfect (Whole)

 “Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth  for a tooth:

     But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosever shall smite thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.

     And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.

  And whosever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.

    Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou enemy.

     Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy.

    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;

     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 the sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

     For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye?  do not even the publicans the same?

      And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than other? do not even the publicans so?

     Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

Matthew 5:38-48
