18 If it is possible, as much as depends on you, glive peaceably with all men. 19 Beloved, hdo not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, i“Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. 20 Therefore
j“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
If he is thirsty, give him a drink;
For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.”
21 Do not be overcome by evil, but kovercome evil with good.
