I thank thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to babes; yea, Father, for such was thy gracious will.

Matthew 5

[7] Blessed are the merciful,
For they will be shown mercy.

Matthew 6

[1] Be giving heed that you not be doing your justice before men to be beheld by them, otherwise you have no reward from your father in the heavens.
[2] Whenever therefore you do [a] merciful [thing], do not trumpet before you, like the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, in order that they be glorified by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward.
[3] But [when] you do [a] merciful [thing], let1 your left hand not know what your right hand is doing,
[4] in order that your merciful [deed] be in secret. And your father who sees in secret will reward you.

Matthew 9
[9] And proceeding from there Jesus saw [a] man sitting at [a] tax-booth, called Matthew, and he says to him: Be following me. And having stood up, he followed him.
[10] And it came to pass when he was seated at table in the house that, behold, many tax-collectors and sinners came and sat down at table with Jesus and his disciples.
[11] And the Pharisees having seen this were saying to his disciples: Why does your teacher eat with tax-collectors and sinners?
[12] But having heard this he said: The healthy have no need of [a] physician, rather those having [it] evil-ly.
[13] But go and learn what it means:
I desire mercy and not sacrifice.

For I did not come to call [the] just, but sinners.

Matthew 12
[1] In that opportune-time Jesus went through [a] corn-field on the Sabbath, and his disciples hungered, and began to be plucking the ears and eating.
[2] But the Pharisees having seen [this] said to him: Behold your disciples do that which is not allowed to be doing on the Sabbath.
[3] But he said to them: Do you not know what David did, when he and those with him hungered?
[4] How he entered into the house of God and they ate the shew- bread, which was not allowed for him nor those with him to eat, but only for the priests alone?
[5] Or do you not know in the law that on the Sabbath the priests in the temple profane the Sabbath and are blameless?
[6] But I say to you that here [is] something greater than [the] temple.
[7]But if you knew what this is:
I desire mercy and not [a] sacrifice.
you would not have condemned the blameless.
[8] For the son of man is Lord of the Sabbath.

Matthew 18
[23] Because of this the kingdom of the heavens is like to [a] man [who is] king, who wished to settle accounts with his slaves.
[24] So when he began to be settling [them], there was brought to him [a] debtor of [a] thousand talents.
[25] And not having [them] to pay, the lord ordered him to be sold and his wife and his children and all that he has for payment.
[26] The slave therefore falling down knelt before him saying: Be patient with me, and I will pay all to you.
[27] And the lord having compassion on this slave loosed him, and allowed him the loan.
[28] So when that slave went out he found one of his fellow-slaves, which owed him [a] hundred denari, and laying hold he was choking him saying: Pay what you owe!
[29] Falling down therefore his fellow-slave knelt before him saying: Be patient with me and I will pay you.
[30] But he did not wish to, but having departed, threw him into prison until he pay the debt.
[31] His fellow-slaves therefore seeing what came to pass were greatly troubled, and having come, reported to their lord all that came to pass.
[32] Then when his lord called him he said to him: Wicked slave, all this debt I allowed you because you called upon me.
[33] Mustn't you also have mercy on your fellow-slave as I also had mercy on you?
[34] And having been angered, his lord gave him over to the torturer until he pay all his debt to him.
[35] Thus also your heavenly father will do to you, if you do not forgive each of your brothers from your heart.

Matthew 23

[23] Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, for you tithe mint and dill and cumin, and omit the weightier [things] of the Law: judgement and mercy and faith. These you ought to do and not leave the others undone. 
[24] Blind guides, straining out [a] gnat, but swallowing [a] camel.

Mark 5
[1] And they came to the other side of the sea to the region of the Gerasenes.
[2] And when he came out of the boat straightway [a] man met him with [an] unclean spirit
[3] who had his dwelling among the graves; neither chain nor anyone [at all] were able to bind him,
[4] because often he had been bound with shackles and chains, and had torn from himself the chains, and had smashed the shackles, and no one was strong [enough] to subdue him.
[5] And day and night among the tombs and in the mountains he was crying out and cutting himself with stones.
[6] And seeing Jesus from afar he ran and worshipped him.
[7] And crying out in [a] loud voice he says: What have you to do with me, Jesus son of the most high God? I implore you by God, [that] you not torment me.
[8] For he was saying to him: Throw the unclean spirit out of the man.
[9] And he asked him, What is your name? And he says: Legion is my name, for we are many.
[10] And he called upon him much that he should not send them out of the region.
[11] Now there was on the mountain [a] great herd of swine grazing.
[12] And they called upon him saying: Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them. And he sent them.
[13] And when the unclean spirits went out they entered into the swine, and the herd rushed headlong down the bank into the sea, as two thousand, and drowned.

[14] Now those grazing them fled and reported [it] in the city and in the country, and they came to see what is this [thing that] came to pass. 
[15] And they came to Jesus, and they beheld the demon possessed [one] sitting being clothed and being of sound mind, the [one] who had the legion, and they were afraid. 
[16] And those who had seen related to them what came to pass to the demon possessed [one] and concerning the swine. 
[17] And they began to be calling upon him to depart from their region. 
[1] And while he embarked in the boat [the] demon possessed [man] called upon him that he may be with him. 
[19] But he permitted him not, but says to him: Be going into your city to your own, and report to them all that the Lord has done for you, and had mercy on you
[20] And he departed and began to be preaching in the Decapolis all that Jesus did for him, and they all marveled.

Luke 6
[32] And if you agape-love those agape-loving you, how is grace to you? For even sinners agape-love those who agape-love them. 
[33] And if you do good to those doing good to you, how is grace to you? Even sinners do the same. 
[34] And if you lend to whom you hope to receive, how is grace to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, in order to receive back equal. 
[35] Rather, be agape-loving your enemies and be doing good and be lending, receiving back nothing. And your reward will be great in heaven, and you will be sons of the most high because he is kind to [the] ungrateful and wicked
[36] Be becoming merciful, just as your father is merciful.

Luke 16
[19] But a certain man was rich, and he had put on purple garments and fine linen enjoying himself each day splendidly.
[20] But a certain poor [man] by name Lazarus had been cast to his gate being covered with ulcerous sores.
[21] And he was lusting to be filled from that falling from the table of the rich [one]; but even the dogs coming were licking his ulcerous sores.

[22] Now it came to pass the poor [man] died and was gathered by the angels to Abraham's lap; but the rich [man] also died and was buried. 
[23] And in Hades lifting up his eyes, being in torment, he sees Abraham from afar and Lazarus in his lap, 
[24] and having called out he said: Father Abraham, have mercy on me and send Lazarus in order that he dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I suffer torment in this flame. 
[25] But Abraham said: Child, remember that you received your good [things] in your zoe-life, and likewise Lazarus the evil. But now he is encouraged, and you suffer torment. 
[26] And in all those [things] between you [people] and us [a] great chasm is fixed, so that those wishing to go down from here to you be not able, nor from there to us may not cross over. 
[27] But he said: I ask you therefore, Father, in order that you may sent him to my fathers house, 
[28] for I have five brothers, that he may warn them, that they also not come to this place of torment. 
[29] But Abraham says: They have Moses and the prophets, let him hear from them. 
[30] But he said: No, father Abraham, but if someone proceed from [the] dead to them: they would repent. 
[31] But he said to them: If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither would they be persuaded if someone rise from the dead.
