`And whoever shall impress thee one mile, go with him two,
- Youngs Literal Bible
Mt 5:41 Compel thee to go one mile. In those days, when there were no stages, railroad trains, postal lines, or regular means of conveyance. It was common for officers traveling to impress men to assist them on the route. It was a necessary, but oppressive, exaction. Christ directs to yield the service, and double it rather refuse it. Mile. A Roman word from "mille", a thousand. A Roman miles was a thousand paces, 1,520 yards.
