JST, Luke 6

JST, Luke 6:29–30. Compare Luke 6:29–30

Jesus teaches that it is better to endure persecution than to contend with an enemy.

29 And unto him who smiteth thee on the cheek, offer also the other; or, in other words, it is better to offer the other, than to revile again. And him who taketh away thy cloak, forbid not to take thy coat also.

30 For it is better that thou suffer thine enemy to take these things, than to contend with him. Verily I say unto you, Your heavenly Father who seeth in secret, shall bring that wicked one into judgment.
