Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
He who has no respect for his neighbour is a sinner, but he who has pity for the poor is happy.
I am on fire with passion for your house; and the hard things which are said about you have come on me.
1 John 3:17
But if a man has this world's goods, and sees that his brother is in need, and keeps his heart shut against his brother, how is it possible for the love of God to be in him?
Do not be glad at the fall of your hater, and let not your heart have joy at his downfall:
If I was glad at the trouble of my hater, and gave cries of joy when evil overtook him;
As for me, I have not said; Let the day of trouble come to them quickly; and I have not been hoping for the death-giving day; you have knowledge of what came from my lips; it was open before you.
Because you were there watching when men from other lands took away his goods, and strange men came into his doors, and put the fate of Jerusalem to the decision of chance; you were like one of them.
Take part in the joy of those who are glad, and in the grief of those who are sorrowing.
