Proverbs 25:26

26 A troubled fountain, and a corrupted spring, [is] a righteous man who gives way before the wicked.

Matthew 26:52-54

52 Then Jesus says to him, Return thy sword into its place, for all those who take a sword will die by a sword. 53 Or do thou think that I cannot now call my Father, and he will provide to me more than twelve legions of agents? 54 How then would the scriptures be fulfilled that it is necessary to happen this way?

Luke 10:30-37

30 And having replied, Jesus said, A certain man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho. And he encountered bandits, who also, having stripped him and having beat him, departed having left him being half dead. 31 And by coincidence a certain priest was going down on that road, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. 32 And likewise also a Levite who happened upon the place, having come, and having looked, passed by on the other side. 33 But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to him, and when he saw him, felt compassion. 34 And having come, he wrapped up his wounds, pouring on olive oil and wine. And having set him on his own beast, he brought him to an inn, and took care of him. 35 And on the morrow when departing, after taking out two denarii, he gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, Take care of him, and whatever thou might spend more, I will repay thee at my return. 36 Which therefore, of these three, appears to thee to have become neighbor to the man who fell among the bandits? 37 And he said, He who did mercy with him. Therefore Jesus said to him, Go, and do thou likewise.
