Bible verses about "dealing with evil people" | YLT

Psalms 27:1-14

1 By David. Jehovah is my light and my salvation, Whom do I fear? Jehovah is the strength of my life, Of whom am I afraid? 2 When evil doers come near to me to eat my flesh, My adversaries and mine enemies to me, They have stumbled and fallen. 3 Though a host doth encamp against me, My heart doth not fear, Though war riseth up against me, In this I am confident. 4 One thing I asked of Jehovah—it I seek. My dwelling in the house of Jehovah, All the days of my life, To look on the pleasantness of Jehovah, And to inquire in His temple. 5 For He hideth me in a tabernacle in the day of evil, He hideth me in a secret place of His tent, On a rock he raiseth me up. 6 And now, lifted up is my head, Above my enemies—my surrounders, And I sacrifice in His tent sacrifices of shouting, I sing, yea, I sing praise to Jehovah.
7 Hear, O Jehovah, my voice—I call, And favour me, and answer me. 8 To Thee said my heart `They sought my face, Thy face, O Jehovah, I seek.' 9 Hide not Thy face from me, Turn not aside in anger Thy servant, My help Thou hast been. Leave me not, nor forsake me, O God of my salvation. 10 When my father and my mother Have forsaken me, then doth Jehovah gather me. 11 Shew me, O Jehovah, Thy way, And lead me in a path of uprightness, For the sake of my beholders. 12 Give me not to the will of my adversaries, For risen against me have false witnesses, And they breathe out violence to me. 13 I had not believed to look on the goodness of Jehovah In the land of the living! 14 Look unto Jehovah—be strong, And He doth strengthen thy heart, Yea, look unto Jehovah!

Matthew 5:38-39

Matthew 5:43-48

43 `Ye heard that it was said: Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and shalt hate thine enemy; 44 but I—I say to you, Love your enemies, bless those cursing you, do good to those hating you, and pray for those accusing you falsely, and persecuting you, 45 that ye may be sons of your Father in the heavens, because His sun He doth cause to rise on evil and good, and He doth send rain on righteous and unrighteous. 46 `For, if ye may love those loving you, what reward have ye? do not also the tax-gatherers the same? 47 and if ye may salute your brethren only, what do ye abundant? do not also the tax-gatherers so? 48 ye shall therefore be perfect, as your Father who is in the heavens is perfect.

Ephesians 4:29

2 Timothy 3:1-5

1 And this know thou, that in the last days there shall come perilous times, 2 for men shall be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, evil-speakers, to parents disobedient, unthankful, unkind, 3 without natural affection, implacable, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, not lovers of those who are good, 4 traitors, heady, lofty, lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God, 5 having a form of piety, and its power having denied; and from these be turning away,

1 Peter 3:8-18

8 And finally, being all of one mind, having fellow-feeling, loving as brethren, compassionate, courteous, 9 not giving back evil for evil, or railing for railing, and on the contrary, blessing, having known that to this ye were called, that a blessing ye may inherit; 10 for `he who is willing to love life, and to see good days, let him guard his tongue from evil, and his lips—not to speak guile; 11 let him turn aside from evil, and do good, let him seek peace and pursue it; 12 because the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and His ears—to their supplication, and the face of the Lord is upon those doing evil;' 13 and who is he who will be doing you evil, if of Him who is good ye may become imitators? 14 but if ye also should suffer because of righteousness, happy are ye! and of their fear be not afraid, nor be troubled, 15 and the Lord God sanctify in your hearts. And be ready always for defence to every one who is asking of you an account concerning the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;
16 having a good conscience, that in that in which they speak against you as evil-doers, they may be ashamed who are traducing your good behaviour in Christ; 17 for it is better doing good, if the will of God will it, to suffer, than doing evil;
18 because also Christ once for sin did suffer—righteous for unrighteous—that he might lead us to God, having been put to death indeed, in the flesh, and having been made alive in the spirit,
