Chapter 24: Turn the other cheek

1 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: 2  But I say unto you, That ye resist all evil: but whatsoever from darkness shall smite thee on thy right cheek, smite with thy club until it moves no more.

3 And if any from darkness will chase thee through the street, wave thy cloke to distract and take sword to its neck.

4 And whosoever shall shamble after thee a mile, lead him to a pit from which he cannot escape.

5 Give to every man that asketh of thee; but give to the risen man not but passage back into the ground. 6 And as ye would do to the risen, so should it be done to you likewise should your sickness arise.
