love and a .44
Matthew 5:44, also found in Luke 6:27-36, is part of the Sermon on the Mount in the Gospel of Matthew in the New Testament. This is the second verse of the final antithesis, that on the commandment to Love thy neighbour as thyself. Jesus has just stated that some had taught that one should "hate your enemies" and in this verse he rejects this view.
In the King James Version of the Bible the text reads:
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
The World English Bible translates the passage as:
But I tell you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who mistreat you and persecute you,
So, whilst toiling away today, I got to thinking about acquiring a pair of revolvers that cap'n'ball type, but also convertible to cartridge firing. I haven't played with blackpowder wheelguns since the late 90s/early 2000s, so I don't know what the current lay of the land is.
