A. Those who reward evil for good

"Whoever rewards evil for good,"

Psalms 109:4-5 (Amplified Bible)

In return for my love they are my adversaries, but I resort to prayer.

And they have rewarded and laid upon me evil for good, and hatred for my love.

Jeremiah 18:20 (Amplified Bible)

Shall evil be recompensed for good? Yet they have dug a pit for my life. [Earnestly] remember that I stood before You to speak good for them, to turn away Your anger from them.

Our ultimate Example and Model is the LORD JESUS who was rejected by His people after all the GOOD things the LORD JESUS had done for them. The LORD JESUS through the Messianic Psalm of the King and Prophet David said:

Psalms 35:12 (Amplified Bible)

They reward me evil for good to my personal bereavement.

This destroys the heart of GOD much more severe than what the nails and thorns did to JESUS.

We as CHRISTian believers have an infinitely higher standards than unbelievers, it's because even when evil is done to us, the LORD JESUS commanded us to not pay them with evil but with good.

Romans 12:17 (Amplified Bible)

Repay no one evil for evil, but take thought for what is honest and proper and noble [aiming to be above reproach] in the sight of everyone.

Proverbs 20:22 (Amplified Bible)

Do not say, I will repay evil; wait [expectantly] for the Lord, and He will rescue you.

Romans 12:17-19 (Amplified Bible)

Repay no one evil for evil, but take thought for what is honest and proper and noble [aiming to be above reproach] in the sight of everyone.

If possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.

Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave the way open for [God’s] wrath; for it is written, Vengeance is Mine, I will repay (requite), says the Lord.
