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
For what glory is it, if when ye sin and are punished for it, ye bear it patiently? but if when ye do well and suffer for it, ye bear it patiently, this will gain favor with God.
but I say unto you, Set not yourselves against him that injures you, but if any one smite thee on thy right cheek, rather turn to him the other also:
But I say unto you my hearers, Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you,
Bless them that persecute you: bless them, I say, and do not curse them.
1 Corinthians 4:12
and we labour working with our own hands. When we are reviled, we bless: when persecuted, we bear it: when defamed, we intreat.
tender-hearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgiveth you.
1 Thessalonians 5:15
See that no one render evil for evil to any man; but always pursue that which is good, both to each other and to all men.
