Rejoice in that day, and leap for joy; for lo! your reward is great in heaven; for thus their fathers did to the prophets. But woe to you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation. Woe to you that are full now! for ye will hunger. Woe to you that laugh now! for ye will mourn and weep. Woe, when all men speak well of you! for so did their fathers of the false prophets. But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies; do good to those who hate you; bless those who curse you; pray for those who are spiteful to you. To him that smiteth thee on one cheek, offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak, forbid not to take thy coat also.

Be merciful, as your Father is merciful. And judge not, and ye will not be judged; and condemn not, and ye will not be condemned; forgive, and ye will be forgiven; give, and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will men give into your bosom; for with what measure ye mete, it will be measured to you in return. And he spoke also a parable to them: Can the blind lead the blind? Will they not both fall into a ditch? A disciple is not above his teacher; but every one when fully instructed will be as his teacher. And why dost thou look at the mote in thy brothers eye, and not perceive the beam that is in thine own eye? How canst thou say to thy brother, Brother, let me take out the mote that is in thine eye, when thou thyself perceivest not the beam in thine own eye? Hypocrite! first cast the beam out of thine own eye, and then thou wilt see clearly to take out the mote that is in thy brothers eye. For there is no good tree that beareth bad fruit; and again, there is no bad tree that beareth good fruit. For every tree is known by its own fruit; for from thorns men do not gather figs, nor from a bramblebush do they gather grapes.

But why call ye me Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? Every one that cometh to me and heareth my sayings and doeth them, I will show you whom he is like. He is like a man building a house, who dug deep, and laid its foundation on a rock; and when a flood arose, the stream dashed against that house, and could not shake it; because it was well built. But he that heareth and doeth not, is like a man that built a house upon the earth without a foundation; against which the stream dashed, and it fell at once, and the ruin of that house was great.

And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up; even if he have committed sins, it shall be forgiven him. Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that ye may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
