And if you should come to inherit your homeland; Do not approach it as an enemy. But come to the inhabitants in the spirit of peace. Not by malice, by transgression nor by animosity will you build the homeland of your forefathers, but by love and mercy, by righteousness and faith. And you will love the inhabitants of the land for they are your brothers of your own flesh, and you will not disregard them.
