Love Your Enemies

43 “You have heard that it was said, Love your neighbor x y and hate your enemy. 44 But I tell you, love your enemies z and pray for those who a persecute you, b 45 so that you may be c sons of your Father in heaven. For He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. d 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward will you have? Don’t even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you greet only your * brothers, what are you doing out of the ordinary? e f Don’t even the Gentiles g do the same? 48 Be perfect, h therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
