39 But I tell you not to resist an evil person.But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.40 If anyone wants to sue you and take away your tunic, let him have your cloak also.41 And whoevercompels you to go one mile, go with him two.42 Give to him who asks you, andfrom him who wants to borrow from you do not turn away.

Matthew 5:44NU But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you
17 Repay no one evil for evil. Have[a] regard for good things in the sight of all men. 18 If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. 19 Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “VengeanceisMine, I will repay,” says the Lord.
