And if he sins against you seven times a day, and returns to you seven times, saying, ‘I repent,’ forgive him.”
Then Peter came and said to Him, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven times?”
But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
‘And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
For if you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
But if he does not listen to you, take one or two more with you, so that by the mouth of two or three witnesses every fact may be confirmed.
My heavenly Father will also do the same to you, if each of you does not forgive his brother from your heart.”
“But if your enemy is hungry, feed him, and if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.”
Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant,
Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice.
So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience;
But as for you, brethren, do not grow weary of doing good.
