CONSTITUTION OF THE HOLY APOSTLES

(A 2nd century compilation of the teachings of the 12 Apostles)

 

 

ON INJURIES AND REVENGE

Do not return injuries nor revenge yourselves on him that does wrong.  If anyone curses you, do thou bless him:  "For he that blesses thee is blessed and he that curses thee is cursed."  Being injured, take no revenge but bear it patiently that the Lord may defend thee and bring vengeance upon him who injures thee.  

"Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you and pray for them who persecute you.  Keep these commandments that ye may be found to be the children of light.
