katapi HOME Teaching about Retaliation - Mt.5.38-42  Lk.6.29-30       | RSV Books | notes

Matthew: 5
38"You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.' 39But I say to you, Do not resist one who is evil. But if anyone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also; 40and if anyone would sue you and take your coat, let him have your cloak as well; 41and if anyone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. 42Give to him who begs from you, and do not refuse him who would borrow from you.

Luke: 6
29To him who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also; and from him who takes away your coat do not withhold even your shirt. 30Give to every one who begs from you; and of him who takes away your goods do not ask them again.
