Romans 12:17-21 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
17 If someone does you wrong, don’t try to pay them back by hurting them. Try to do what everyone thinks is right. 18 Do the best you can to live in peace with everyone. 19 My friends, don’t try to punish anyone who does wrong to you. Wait for God to punish them with his anger. In the Scriptures the Lord says,
“I am the one who punishes;
20 But you should do this:
“If you have enemies who are hungry,
21 Don’t let evil defeat you, but defeat evil by doing good.
