And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. And by chance there came down a certain Priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And likewise Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, &c. -Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise, Luke x. 29-37.

But thou, O LORD, be merciful unto me, and raise me up, that I may requite them, Ps. xli. 10. Do not I hate them, O LORD,
that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? I hate them with perfect hatred : I count them mine enemies, cxxxix. 21, 22.

But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom. I behaved myself as though he had been my. friend or brother: I bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth for his mother, xxxv. 12-14. If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink, Prov. xxv. 21, and Rom. xii. 20. 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, Luke vi. 27, 28.

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 sin ners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again, Luke vi. 32-34.
There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect aud upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil, Job i. 1. And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil, ii. 3.

Verily I say unto you, that the Publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you, xxi. 31. Then drew near unto him all the Publicans and sinners, for to hear him.

According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love, Eph. i. 4. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore, as
many as be perfect, be thus minded, Phil. iii. 13–15. Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus, Col. i. 28.

Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, xv. 7. And in the morning, It will be foul weather to-day; for the sky is red and lowring.

And shall cut him asunder, and shall appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, xxiv. 51. Therefore the LORD shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for every one is an hypocrite and an evil-doer, and every mouth speaketh folly.

I will send him against an hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him a charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets, x. 6.
