Psalm 35:12; Psalm 109:4–5; Proverbs 20:22; Matthew 5:39

12  pThey repay me evil for good;

my soul is bereft.1

In return for my love they xaccuse me,

but I ygive myself to prayer.1

So they zreward me evil for good,

and hatred for my love.

22  Do not say, jI will repay evil;

kwait for the Lord, and he will deliver you.

39 But I say to you, zDo not resist the one who is evil. But aif anyone bslaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.
