Jesus said,

“But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you!” Matthew‬ ‭5:44‬ ‭NLT‬‬

The apostle Paul wrote,

“Never pay back evil with more evil. Do things in such a way that everyone can see you are honorable. Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone. Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, “I will take revenge; I will pay them back,” says the Lord.”‭‭ Romans‬ ‭12:17-19‬ ‭NLT

‬‬“We know that God has said He will punish and take revenge. We also know that the Scriptures say the Lord will judge His people. It is a terrible thing to fall into the hands of the living God!” Hebrews‬ ‭10:30-31‬ ‭CEV

‬‬In the Bible book of first Peter chapter 3 it says,

“Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t retaliate with insults when people insult you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has called you to do, and He will grant you His blessing.” 1. Peter‬ ‭3:9‬ ‭NLT‬‬
