Talk:what goes around comes around

Biblical originEdit

In the movie Everyday People, one of the characters says that this phrase is in the Torah, the Bible and the Koran. Is that true??

I assume he is referring to "You reap what you sow" in the bible.

It would certainly make an interesting entry to this page if we could find the other two!

The text is from Galatians 6:vii, "whatever someone sows, that is what he will reap". But that's obviously New Testament, so where it appears in the Torah or Qur'an I don't know. You'd be better off asking on Wikipedia. Widsith 08:18, 8 February 2008 (UTC)


Why is there a comma in this entry? It doesn't seem to be grammatically required or justified, and a casual search reveals far more usages without the comma than with. Mooncow 18:25, 24 January 2011 (UTC)
