Romans 12:21

Be not overcome of evil (mh nikw upo tou kakou). Present passive imperative of nikaw, to conquer. "Stop being conquered by the evil (thing or man)," But overcome evil with good (alla nika en twi agaqwi to kakon). "But keep on conquering the evil in the good." Drown the evil in the good. Seneca: Vincit malos pertinax bonitas.
