Stop doing wrong, learn to do right!
Seek justice, encourage the oppressed, rebuke the oppressor.
Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow."

the words of Jesus from the Sermon on the Mount

Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.

You have heard that it was said to the people long ago,
"Do not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment."
But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment.

You have heard that it was said,
"Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth."
But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person.
If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.

You have heard that it was said,
"Love your neighbor and hate your enemy."
But I tell you: 
Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
that you may be sons 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.
