Ma. Shall we then fully satisfy the law, if we hate no man?

Sch. God in condemning hatred, requireth love toward all men, even our enemies, yea so far as to wish health, safety, and all good things to them that wish us evil, and do bear us a hateful and cruel mind:  and as much as in us lieth to do them good, and to pray for them.
