I don't know if there is much difference in being punched or backhanded?

An eye for an eye did not mean--do unto your brother as he has done unto you. That would make you wrong as well if he was wrong. It meant---justice WILL prevail. In the NT Gods will = Vengeance is mine said the Lord--Man has no right to take vengeance, if they do they do it is for pride and self. That's-turn the other cheek.

kjw47, please read the passages: "Must be done unto him" is kind of hard to miss.

If the one who lost his eye demanded the others eye-it would be justice, but there are other forms of justice that could be applied. The courts of man prove that.

Nothing in the cited passages indicates that anything but carrying out the punishment noted would be allowed.

There are many passages besides that showing to go in front of a judge for a just compensation.

Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy; for thou renderest to every man according to his work.--PSALM lxii. 12.

Some of the translators make it kindness and goodness; but I presume there is no real difference among them as to the character of the word which here, in the English Bible, is translated mercy.

The religious mind, however, educated upon the theories yet prevailing in the so-called religious world, must here recognize a departure from the presentation to which they have been accustomed: to make the psalm speak according to prevalent theoretic modes, the verse would have to be changed thus:--'To thee, O Lord, belongeth justice, for thou renderest to every man according to his work.'

So, you are saying that the Bible contradicts itself and we should choose the passage that suits us?
