Resist Not Evil

                                                     Resist Not Evil

But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil :  but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. ( Matthew 5:39)

See that none render evil for evil unto any man ; but ever follow after that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. ( 1st Thesselonians 5:15)

Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing : but contrariwise blessing ; knkowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. ( 1st Peter 3:9)

Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. ( Romans 12:17)

But I unto you , Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you. That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven : for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. ( Matthew 5:44,445)

Say not thou I will recompense evil ; but wait on the Lord and he shall save thee. (Proverbs 20:22)

Say not , I will do so to him as he hath done to me : I will render to the man according to his work. ( Prov. 24:29)

Bless them that persecute you : bless and curse not. ( Rom. 12:14)

And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord , lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this he fell asleep. ( Acts 7:60)

And labor working with our own hands : being reviled , we bless ; being persecuted we suffer it; being defamed, we intreat : we are made as the filth of the world , and are the offscouring of all things unto this day. (1st Corinthians 4:12)

Who, when he was reviled , reviled not again ; when he suffered, he threatened not; committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: ( 1st Peter 2:23)

Dearly beloved , avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath : for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay saith the Lord.
Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him ; if he thirst , give him drink : for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. ( Rom. 12:19,20)

If thine enemy be hungry , give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink. For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the Lord shall reward thee. (Proverbs 25: 21,22)
To me belongeth vengeance, and recompense; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste. ( Deut. 32:35)

For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. ( Hebrews 10:30)

If thou meet thine enemy’s ox or his ass going astray, thou shalt surely bring it back to him again. If thou see the ass of him that hateth thee under his burden, and wouldest
forbear to help him, thou shalt surely help him. ( Exodus 23:4,5)

But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also..Give to every man that asketh of thee ; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? For sinners do even the same. And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye?for sinners also do the same. And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? For sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. But love ye your enemies , and do good , and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the
unthankful and to the evil. Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not , and ye shall not be condemned: forgive and ye shall be forgiven: Give and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure ye mete withal  it shall be measured to you again. ( Luke 6: 27
