Matthew 5:46-48 The Passion Translation (TPT)

46 What reward do you deserve if you only love the loveable? Don’t even the tax collectors[a] do that? 47 How are you any different from others if you limit your kindness[b] only to your friends? Don’t even the ungodly[c] do that? 48 Since you are children of a perfect Father in heaven, you are to be perfect[d] like him.”


  1. Matthew 5:46 The Hebrew Matthew is “transgressors.”
  2. Matthew 5:47 Or “ask for the peace of your brothers” (Hebrew Matthew and Aramaic).
