How to Treat an Enemy

“Do not rejoice when your enemy falls.

And do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles;

Lest the LORD see it and be displeased.

And He turn away His anger from him.”

-Proverbs 24:17-18

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

And if he is thirsty, give him water to drink;

For you will heap burning coals on his head,

And the LORD will reward you.”

-Proverbs 25:21-22

“But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you in order that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.”

-Matthew 5:44-45

“But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,

bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.

Whoever hits you on the cheek, offer him the other also; and whoever takes away your coat, do not withhold your shirt from him either.

Give to everyone who asks of you, and whoever takes away what is yours, do not demand it back.

And just as you want people to treat you, treat them in the same way.

And if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you?  For even sinners love those who love them.

And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you?  For even sinners do the same.

And if you lend to those from whom you expect to receive, what credit is that to you?  Even sinners lend to sinners, in order to receive back the same amount.

But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High; for He Himself is kind to ungrateful and evil men.”

-Luke 6:27-35
