Romans 12:19-21
19 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it [1] to the wrath of God, for it is written, Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.20 To the contrary, if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
