Bible: Matt 5:38-42

Retaliation

5:38You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ 1  5:39 But I say to you, do not resist the evildoer. 2  But whoever strikes you on the 3  right cheek, turn the other to him as well. 5:40 And if someone wants to sue you and to take your tunic, 4  give him your coat also. 5:41 And if anyone forces you to go one mile, 5  go with him two. 5:42 Give to the one who asks you, 6  and do not reject 7  the one who wants to borrow from you.
