James 4:1-3
What is the source of the wars and the fights among you? Don't they come from the cravings that are at war within you?
You desire and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. You do not have because you do not ask.
You ask and don't receive because you ask wrongly, so that you may spend it on your desires for pleasure.

Don't say, "I will avenge this evil!" Wait on the LORD, and He will rescue you.

But I tell you, don't resist an evildoer. On the contrary, if anyone slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.
As for the one who wants to sue you and take away your shirt, let him have your coat as well.
And if anyone forces you to go one mile, go with him two.
Luke 6:29
If anyone hits you on the cheek, offer the other also. And if anyone takes away your coat, don't hold back your shirt either.
Romans 12:17-19
Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Try to do what is honorable in everyone's eyes.
If possible, on your part, live at peace with everyone.

1 Peter 2:19-23
For it [brings] favor if, because of conscience toward God, someone endures grief from suffering unjustly.
For what credit is there if you endure when you sin and are beaten? But when you do good and suffer, if you endure, it brings favor with God.
For you were called to this, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you should follow in His steps.
He did not commit sin, and no deceit was found in His mouth;
when reviled, He did not revile in return; when suffering, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to the One who judges justly.
1 Peter 3:9
not paying back evil for evil or insult for insult but, on the contrary, giving a blessing, since you were called for this, so that you can inherit a blessing.
