23 Lamech said to his wives:

“Adah and Zillah, hear my voice;
    you wives of Lamech, listen to what I say:
I have killed a man for wounding me,
    a young man for striking me.
24 (A)If Cain's revenge is sevenfold,
    then Lamech's is seventy-sevenfold.”

The Parable of the Unforgiving Servant

21 Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often (A)will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? (B)As many as seven times?” 22 Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times.

The Parable of the Good Samaritan

25 (A)And behold, a (B)lawyer stood up to (C)put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to (D)inherit eternal life?” 26 He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?” 27 And he answered, (E)“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and (F)your neighbor as yourself.” 28 And he said to him, “You have answered correctly; (G)do this, and you will live.”

29 But he, (H)desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” 30 Jesus replied, “A man (I)was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 Now by chance a (J)priest was going down that road, and when he saw him he passed by on the other side. 32 So likewise (K)a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a (L)Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion. 34 He went to him and (M)bound up his wounds, pouring on (N)oil and wine. Then he set him on his own animal and brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 And the next day he took out two (O)denarii[a] and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, ‘Take care of him, and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back.’ 36 Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?” 37 He said, “The one who showed him mercy.” And Jesus said to him, “You go, and do likewise.”
