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.

1 Thessalonians 5:15 (Amplified Bible)

See that none of you repays another with evil for evil, but always aim to show kindness and seek to do good to one another and to everybody.

1 Peter 3:9 (Amplified Bible)

Never return evil for evil or insult for insult (scolding, tongue-lashing, berating), but on the contrary blessing [praying for their welfare, happiness, and protection, and truly pitying and loving them]. For know that to this you have been called, that you may yourselves inherit a blessing [from God—that you may obtain a blessing as heirs, bringing welfare and happiness and protection].

Even if we are insulted, we should bless them.

Psalms 69:9 (Amplified Bible)

For zeal for Your house has eaten me up, and the reproaches and insults of those who reproach and insult You have fallen upon me.

Romans 15:3 (Amplified Bible)

For Christ did not please Himself [gave no thought to His own interests]; but, as it is written, The reproaches and abuses of those who reproached and abused you fell on Me.

John 2:17 (Amplified Bible)

And His disciples remembered that it is written [in the Holy Scriptures], Zeal (the fervor of love) for Your house will eat Me up. [I will be consumed with jealousy for the honor of Your house.]

Be like JESUS, love your enemies, pray for them, and bless them.

Matthew 5:44 (Amplified Bible)

But I tell you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,

Luke 6:27 (Amplified Bible)

But I say to you who are listening now to Me: [in order to heed, make it a practice to] love your enemies, treat well (do good to, act nobly toward) those who detest you and pursue you with hatred,
