“Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Jesus a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, they said to Him; This woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. The law commands us that such should be stoned. But what do You say? This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. Jesus said to them; He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.
Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. Then Jesus raised Himself up and said to the woman; Woman where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you? She said; No one, Lord. And Jesus said to her; Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.” (John 8, 3-11)
Jesus said: "Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you."…."If you love those who love you, and if you do good to those who do good to you, and if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive back, what credit is that to you? But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil. Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful." (Luke 6, 27-28, 32-36)
