Commonly formulated as “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you” (negatively: “Do not do unto others what you would not have others do unto you”), the Golden Rule is so called because it has long been thought of inestimable worth as a first principle of morals. It can be traced back to Confucious  (551-479 B.C.E.) and the Old Testament, and the expression is often specifically used to refer to the precept in Luke: “As ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise” (6:31), as well as to that in Matthew: “All things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them.” (7:12)
