Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.

Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.Jesus Christ More
