But they have done this to fulfill the word that is written in their Law, ‘ They hated Me without a cause.’
Do not let those who are wrongfully my enemies rejoice over me; Nor let those who hate me without cause wink maliciously.
Those who hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head; Those who would destroy me are powerful, being wrongfully my enemies; What I did not steal, I then have to restore.
They have also surrounded me with words of hatred, And fought against me without cause.
Jesus answered them, “Has it not been written in your Law, ‘ I said, you are gods’?
Or did I commit a sin in humbling myself so that you might be exalted, because I preached the gospel of God to you without charge?
If I have rewarded evil to my friend, Or have plundered him who without cause was my adversary,
Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons. Freely you received, freely give.
Now He said to them, “ These are My words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things which are written about Me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.”
For these things came to pass to fulfill the Scripture, “ Not a bone of Him shall be broken.”
Now we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those who are under the Law, so that every mouth may be closed and all the world may become accountable to God;

I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the Law, then Christ died needlessly.”
nor did we eat anyone’s bread without paying for it, but with labor and hardship we kept working night and day so that we would not be a burden to any of you;
Then He said to me, “ It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost.
The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost.
