14 12Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.
15 13Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.
16 14Be of the same mind toward one another; 15do not be haughty in mind, but associate with the lowly. 16Do not be wise in your own estimation.
17 17Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. 18Respect what is right in the sight of all men.
18 If possible, 19so far as it depends on you, 20be at peace with all men.
19 21Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, "22VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY," says the Lord.
20 "23BUT 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.
