Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.
1 Peter 2:20
from a principle of conscience. what glory is there in suffering corporal punishment for real offences? but if you meet with ill usage for doing your duty, and bear it with constancy,
but I say unto you, don't return evil for evil; on the contrary, if any one strike thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other likewise.
But as for you, who hear me, love your enemies: do good to those, who hate you: bless those, who curse you:
bless them who persecute you:
1 Corinthians 4:12
we are fatigu'd by our manual toil: when reviled, we pray: when persecuted, we don't repine:
be mutually kind, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
1 Thessalonians 5:15
Don't allow any one to return evil for evil, but strive to do all the good you can to one another, and to all the world.
