Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again [don't ask him to give them back]. And as ye would [like] that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye [what credit is that to you]? 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 [from] whom ye hope to receive [repayment WU], what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, [expecting WU] to receive [back] as much again. But love ye your enemies, and do good [to them WU], and lend, hoping for [expecting] nothing [back] 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 [wicked WU].
