Matthew 5:38-42 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

38 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.

39 But I say to you, that ye against-stand not an evil man; but if any smite thee in the right cheek, show to him also the other;[a]

40 and to him that will strive with thee in doom, and take away thy coat, leave to him also thy mantle [leave thou to him and thine over-cloth];

41 and whoever constraineth thee a thousand paces, go thou with him other twain. [and whoever constrain thee a thousand paces, go thou with him other two.]

42 Give thou to him that asketh of thee [Forsooth give to him that asketh of thee], and turn thou not away from him that will borrow of thee.

Matthew 5:38-42 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

38 You have heard how it is said, An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. 39 But I say to you, do not resist wrong. But whosoever gives you a blow on your right cheek, turn to him the other. 40 And if any man would sue you at law and take away your coat, let him have your cloak also. 41 And whoever would compel you to go a mile, go with him two. 42 Give to him who asks, and from him who would borrow, turn not away.

  1. Matthew 5:38 He showeth clean contrary to the doctrine of the Scribes, that the sum of the second table must be understood, that we may in no wise render evil for evil, but rather suffer double injury, and do well to them that are our deadly enemies.
