If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat;

if he is thirsty, give him water to drink.

In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head,

and the LORD will reward you.  ~Proverbs 25:21-22

Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay,"says the Lord. On the contrary:

"If your enemy is hungry, feed him;

if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.

In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head."    

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

~ROMANS 12:17-21

Do not gloat when your enemy falls;

when he stumbles, do not let your heart rejoice,

or the LORD will see and disapprove

and turn his wrath away from him.

~PROVERBS 24:17-18

Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing. For,

   "Whoever would love life

      and see good days

   must keep his tongue from evil

      and his lips from deceitful speech.

   He must turn from evil and do good;

      he must seek peace and pursue it.

~1 PETER 3:9-11
