“Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.”
King James Version (KJV)
12:21 And if you see no present fruit, yet persevere. Be not overcome with evil - As all are who avenge themselves. But overcome evil with good. Conquer your enemies by kindness and patience.
Ro 12:21 Be not overcome by evil. Don't let the fact that you are treated wickedly induce you to do wrong, but overcome evil with good , by returning good for evil. This sums up the whole matter respecting the treatment of adversaries. Happy would it be if the Christian world could come up to these requirements! The logic of kind deeds is more powerful than the logic of argument.
