Martin Palmer [The Jesus Sutras] provides the following example of this saying from Christian Chinese sources in the Tang Dynasty:

5Do not hesitate when you pray. 6 Ask first for forgiveness for your sins and at the same time forgive those who have sinned against you. 7 The Heavenly Ruler above will forgive you as you forgive others. [I.1.5-7]
