39 But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also.x 40 And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. 41 If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. 42 Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.y
43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbori z and hate your enemy.’a 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,b 45 that you may be childrenc of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.d
