38 You have heard that it was said: 'An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.'
39 But I say to you, do not resist one who is evil, but if anyone will have struck you on your right cheek, offer to him the other also.
40 And anyone who wishes to contend with you in judgment, and to take away your tunic, release to him your cloak also.
41 And whoever will have compelled you for one thousand steps, go with him even for two thousand steps.
42 Whoever asks of you, give to him. And if anyone would borrow from you, do not turn away from him.
2 Corinthians 6:1-10
1 But, as a help to you, we exhort you not to receive the grace of God in vain.
2 For he says: "In a favorable time, I heeded you; and on the day of salvation, I helped you." Behold, now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.
3 May we never give offense to anyone, so that our ministry may not be disparaged.
4 But in all things, let us exhibit ourselves as ministers of God with great patience: through tribulation, difficulties, and distress;
5 despite wounds, imprisonment, and rebellion; with hard work, vigilance, and fasting;
6 by chastity, knowledge, and longsuffering; in pleasantness, in the Holy Spirit, and in unfeigned charity;
7 with the Word of truth, with the power of God, and with the armor of justice to the right and to the left;
8 through honor and dishonor, despite good reports and bad, whether seen as deceivers or truth-tellers, whether ignored or acknowledged;
9 as if dying and yet truly alive; as if chastised and yet not subdued;
10 as if sorrowful and yet always rejoicing; as if needy and yet enriching many; as if having nothing and possessing everything.
