MATTHEW 5: 38-42
The law of nonresistance


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 him who is evil; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also.
40. And if anyone wants to sue you, and take your shirt, let him have your coat also.
41. And whoever shall force you to go one mile; go with him two.
42. Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you.
