Smooth English Translation

It is true wisdom for someone to show sinners tolerance and compassion. He who does this does so in the full recognition of such a person. He must try to show tolerance and compassion towards any sin. This is the most necessary requirement of the heart. Only a few people seek that which they believe to know. I myself am not sure.
