6 Revised Standard Version Passage

32"If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. 
33And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. 
34And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, to receive as much again. 
35But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return Other ancient authorities read: despairing of no man; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for he is kind to the ungrateful and the selfish. 
36Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful.
