23. That evil is not to be returned for evil.

In the Epistle of Paul to the Romans:  “Rendering to no man evil for evil.”43514351    Rom. xii. 17. Also in the same place:  “Not to be overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.”43524352    Rom. xii. 21. Of this same thing in the Apocalypse: “And He said unto me, Seal not the words of the prophecy of this book; because now the time is at hand. And let those who persist in hurting, hurt: and let him who is filthy, be filthy still: but let the righteous do still more righteousness: and in like manner, let him that is holy do still more holiness. Behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to render to every man according to his deeds.”43534353    Rev. xxii. 10–12.
