17 1Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. 2Respect what is right in the sight of all men.
18 If possible, 3so far as it depends on you, 4be at peace with all men.
19 5Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, "6VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY," says the Lord.
20 "7BUT IF YOUR ENEMY IS HUNGRY, FEED HIM, AND IF HE IS THIRSTY, GIVE HIM A DRINK; FOR IN SO DOING YOU WILL HEAP BURNING COALS ON HIS HEAD."
21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
