THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

Leviticus (Author Moses)

19:18Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.

Isaiah (Author Isaiah)

58:6Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?

58:7Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?

Matthew (Author Matthew)

7:12Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

25:34Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

25:35For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

25:36Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

25:37Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

25:38When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

25:39Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

25:40And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

25:41Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

25:42For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

25:43I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

25:44Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

25:45Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

25:46And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

Luke (Author Luke)

10:25And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?

10:26He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?

10:27And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.

10:28And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.

10:29But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?

10:30And 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.

10:31And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

10:32And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.

10:33But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,

10:34And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.

10:35And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.

10:36Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?

10:37And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.
