The following are different modes of behavior, to put in our consideration:
1- Paying evil back with good.
2- Not paying evil back with evil.
3- Paying good back with good.
4- Paying evil back with evil.
5- Not paying good back with good
6- Paying good back with evil.
The first and the second, concern the good men, yet the first is
better than the second.
The last two (5 & 6) concern the wicked men, yet the very last
one is worst than the one preceding it.
The two modes of behavior in the middle (3 & 4) concern those
in the middle, between the good and the wicked.
In the Holy scripture we notice that the Lord Himself pays good
back for evil, “He justifies the ungodly” (Romans 4: 5); And when He was hanged on the cross,
He said: “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do” (Luke 23: 34) .
