“You have heard that it was said, * ‘You shall not commit adultery;’* but I tell you that everyone who gazes at a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart. If your right eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out and throw it away from you. For it is more profitable for you that one of your members should perish, than for your whole body to be cast into Gehenna. If your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off, and throw it away from you. For it is more profitable for you that one of your members should perish, than for your whole body to be cast into Gehenna.                “It was also said, ‘Whoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorce,’* but I tell you that whoever puts away his wife, except for the cause of sexual immorality, makes her an adulteress; and whoever marries her when she is put away commits adultery.                “Again you have heard that it was said to them of old time, ‘You shall not make false vows, but shall perform to the Lord your vows,’ but I tell you, don’t swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is the throne of God; nor by the earth, for it is the footstool of his feet; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. Neither shall you swear by your head, for you can’t make one hair white or black. But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes’ and your ‘No’ be ‘No.’ Whatever is more than these is of the evil one.                “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.’* But I tell you, don’t resist him who is evil; but whoever strikes you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also. If anyone sues you to take away your coat, let him have your cloak also. Whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks you, and don’t turn away him who desires to borrow from you.                “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor,* and hate your enemy.*’ But I tell you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who mistreat you and persecute you, that you may be children of your Father who is in heaven.

This I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more...

Paul's Letter to the Philippians 1:9

and you shall love Yahweh your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might.

These words, which I command you this day, shall be on your heart;

and you shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up.

You shall bind them for a sign on your hand, and they shall be for symbols between your eyes.

You shall write them on the door posts of your house, and on your gates.

Deuteronomy 6:5-9

Don't rejoice when your enemy falls. Don't let your heart be glad when he is overthrown;

lest Yahweh see it, and it displease him, and he turn away his wrath from him.

Proverbs 24:17-18

It is Your love that does this, graciously upholding me, supporting me in so many necessities, guarding me from so many grave dangers, and snatching me, as I may truly say, from evils without number.

Thomas à Kempis "The Imitation Of Christ"

One who is in love flies, runs, and rejoices; he is free, not bound.

Thomas à Kempis "The Imitation Of Christ"

Strive to love your neighbor actively and indefatigably. In as far as you advance in love you will grow surer of the reality of God and of the immortality of your soul. If you attain to perfect self-forgetfulness in the love of your neighbor, then you will believe without doubt, and no doubt can possibly enter your soul. This has been tried. This is certain.

Fyodor Dostoyevsky "The Brothers Karamazov"

‘I love humanity,' he said, ‘but I wonder at myself. The more I love humanity in general, the less I love man in particular. In my dreams,' he said, ‘I have often come to making enthusiastic schemes for the service of humanity, and perhaps I might actually have faced crucifixion if it had been suddenly necessary; and yet I am incapable of living in the same room with any one for two days together, as I know by experience. As soon as any one is near me, his personality disturbs my self-complacency and restricts my freedom. In twenty-four hours I begin to hate the best of men: one because he's too long over his dinner; another because he has a cold and keeps on blowing his nose. I become hostile to people the moment they come close to me. But it has always happened that the more I detest men individually the more ardent becomes my love for humanity.'

Fyodor Dostoyevsky "The Brothers Karamazov"

The stroke of a whip makes a mark in the flesh; But the stroke of a tongue will break bones.

Many have fallen by the edge of the sword: Yet not so many as those who have fallen because of the tongue.

The Wisdom of Jesus the Son of Sirach 28:17-18

Seeing you have purified your souls in your obedience to the truth through the Spirit in sincere brotherly affection, love one another from the heart fervently.

Peter's First Letter 1:22

To him therefore who knows to do good, and doesn't do it, to him it is sin.

The Letter from James 4:17

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God, and knows God.
He who doesn't love doesn't know God, for God is love.

John's First Letter 4:7-8

If we love one another, God remains in us, and his love has been perfected in us.

John's First Letter 4:12

God is love, and he who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him.

John's First Letter 4:16

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear has punishment. He who fears is not made perfect in love.

John's First Letter 4:18

For judgment is without mercy to him who has shown no mercy.

The Letter from James 2:13

... lets make efforts to use things and love people ... and not to use people and love things ...

Włodzimierz Fijałkowski

Don't say, "I will do to him as he has done to me; I will render to the man according to his work."

Proverbs 24:29

Let your foot be seldom in your neighbor's house, lest he be weary of you, and hate you.

Proverbs 25:17

If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat. If he is thirsty, give him water to drink: for you will heap coals of fire on his head, and Yahweh will reward you.

Proverbs 25:21-22

But I tell you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who mistreat you and persecute you,
that you may be children of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and the unjust.
For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Don't even the tax collectors do the same?
If you only greet your friends, what more do you do than others? Don't even the tax collectors do the same?
Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.

The Good News According to Matthew 5:44-48

Don't say to your neighbor, "Go, and come again; tomorrow I will give it to you," when you have it by you.

Proverbs 3:28

One who gives to the poor has no lack.

Proverbs 28:27

"When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.

They called to them, so they went from them. They sacrificed to the Baals, and burned incense to engraved images.

Yet I taught Ephraim to walk. I took them by his arms; but they didn't know that I healed them.

I drew them with cords of a man, with ties of love; and I was to them like those who lift up the yoke on their necks; and I bent down to him and I fed him.

Hosea 11:1-4

Therefore you delivered them into the hand of their adversaries, who distressed them. In the time of their trouble, when they cried to you, you heard from heaven; and according to your manifold mercies you gave them saviors who saved them out of the hand of their adversaries.

But after they had rest, they did evil again before you; therefore left you them in the hand of their enemies, so that they had the dominion over them; yet when they returned, and cried to you, you heard from heaven; and many times you delivered them according to your mercies.

Nehemiah, 9:27-28

13:1 If I speak with the languages of men and of angels, but don't have love, I have become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal.
13:2 If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but don't have love, I am nothing.
13:3 If I dole out all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but don't have love, it profits me nothing.
13:4 Love is patient and is kind; love doesn't envy. Love doesn't brag, is not proud,
13:5 doesn't behave itself inappropriately, doesn't seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil;
13:6 doesn't rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;
13:7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
13:8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will be done away with. Where there are various languages, they will cease. Where there is knowledge, it will be done away with.

Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians, 13

Better is a dinner of herbs, where love is, than a fattened calf with hatred.

Proverbs 15:17

Truly loves you he who secretly prays to God for you.

St. Nicholas Serbian
