passage: Rom 12:15-12:21
Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. Be of
the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend

no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.

for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him
drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
passage: Matt 12:9-12:13
And when he was departed thence, he went into their synagogue: And,

a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the
sabbath days. Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And
he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other.
