Golden rule

stated treat

Golden rule, precept stated by Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount: “Treat others as you would like them to treat you” (Matt. 7.12). The rule existed earlier among Greeks and Jews in a negative form (that one should not treat others in a manner in which one would not wish to be treated oneself), and was also stated by the Chinese philosopher Confucius.
