Page 44 - And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek, offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also. Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.
Page 45 - And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye ? For sinners also love those that love them. And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? For sinners also do even the same. And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye ? For sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.
Page 44 - Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them : for this is the law and the prophets.
Page 45 - But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again ; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest : for He is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.
Page 44 - But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you ; Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other ; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also.
Page 45 - Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. Judge not, and ye shall not be judged : condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned : forgive, and ye shall be forgiven : give, and it shall be given unto you : good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
Page 16 - Englishmen, while they practise the purchase and sale of slaves, can much enforce or demand the law of doing to others as we would that they should do to us.
Page xii - Yet this rule admits of exception, where the former determination is most evidently contrary to reason ; much more if it be clearly contrary to the divine law. But even in such cases the subsequent judges do not pretend to make a new law, but to vindicate the old one from misrepresentation.
Page 48 - Him a name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that He is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Page 41 - I know of but one way of protecting the ignorant, and thai is, by destroying ignorance by the diffusion of information. The best defence against sophistry is not its suppression, but its refutation. Danger from books implies ability to read those books, and he who can read one book, can read another ; he who can read Paine can read the Bible.
