Matthew 7:12

Context
7:12 In 1  everything, treat others as you would want them 2  to treat you, 3  for this fulfills 4  the law and the prophets.

1 tn Grk “Therefore in.” Here οὖν (oun) has not been translated.

2 tn This is a generic use of ἄνθρωπος (anqrwpo"), referring to both males and females.

3 sn Jesus’ teaching as reflected in the phrase treat others as you would want them to treat you, known generally as the Golden Rule, is not completely unique in the ancient world, but here it is stated in its most emphatic, selfless form.

4 tn Grk “is.”
