Blessing Enemies

"Bless those who persecute you; 
bless and do not curse."
-Romans 12:14

"Do not repay anyone evil for evil." 
-Romans 12:17

"Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: 'It is mine to avenge; I will repay,' says the Lord. On the contrary:

'If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.'"
-Romans 12:19-20

"Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing." 
-1 Peter 3:9
