7. Do not your alms before men: Let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth.

8. Recompense to no man evil for evil: overcome evil with good.

9. Bless them that curse you; let no cursing come out of your mouth.

10. Render not evil for evil, or railing for railing, but contrariwise, blessing.
