Romans 12:14, 17-19

“Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them.

Repay no one evil for evil,

but give thought to do what is honorable in the

sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends

on you, live peaceably with all. Beloved,

never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the

wrath of God, for it is written, ‘Vengeance

is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.'”
