(1) Thom 6:3

His disciples asked him and said to him, "Do you want us to fast? How should we pray? Should we give to charity? What diet should we observe?" 2 Jesus said, "Don't lie, 3 and don't do what you hate, 4 because all things are disclosed before heaven. 5 After all, there is nothing hidden that won't be revealed, 6 and there is nothing covered up that will remain undisclosed."

=POxy 654 6:3

[His disciples] ask him [and] say, "How [should we] fast? [How should] we [pray]? How [should we give charity]? What [diet] should [we] observe?" 2 Jesus says, "[Don't lie, 3 and] don't do [what] you [hate, 4 because all things are apparent before] truth. 5[After all, there is nothing] hidden [that won't be exposed]."

(2) 1Q: Luke 6:31

Do to others as you would have them do to you.

Καὶ καθὼς θέλετε ἵνα ποιῶσιν ὑμῖν οἱ ἄνθρωποι ποιεῖτε αὐτοῖς ὁμοίως. (Luke 6:31 GNT-T)

= Matt 7:12

"In everything do to others as you would have them do to you; for this is the law and the prophets."

Πάντα οὖν ὅσα ἐὰν θέλητε ἵνα ποιῶσιν ὑμῖν οἱ ἄνθρωποι, οὕτως καὶ ὑμεῖς ποιεῖτε αὐτοῖς (Matthew 7:12 GNT-T)

(3) Didache 1:2b

There are two ways, one to life and one to death, but the difference between the two ways is great. 2 The way of life is this: “First, you shall love God, who has created you; second, your neighbor as yourself. Whatever you do not want to happen to you, do not do to another. 3 This is the teaching [that comes] from these words: [Hermeneia]

Ἡ μὲν οὖν ὁδὸς τῆς ζωῆς ἐστιν αὕτη· πρῶτον, ἀγαπήσεις τὸν θεὸν τὸν ποιήσαντά σε· δεύτερον, τὸν πλησίον σου ὡς σεαυτόν· πάντα δὲ ὅσα ἐὰν θελήσῃς μὴ γίνεσθαί σοι, καὶ σὺ ἄλλῳ μὴ ποίει. (Didache 1:2 AF-T)
