9. not rendering evil for evil, or reviling for reviling; but contrariwise blessing; for hereunto were ye called, that ye should inherit a blessing.

10. For, He that would love life, And see good days, Let him refrain his tongue from evil, And his lips that they speak no guile:

11. And let him turn away from evil, and do good; Let him seek peace, and pursue it.

12. For the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, And his ears unto their supplication: But the face of the Lord is upon them that do evil.

13. And who is he that will harm you, if ye be zealous of that which is good? (1 Peter 3)

Addressing the OP only. Good topic and on point.

especially when Peter said, " 1 Peter 3:9 "Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing".

for our Lord forgave, "Father forgive them for they know not what they do".

PICYJAG.

Forgiveness is an acknowledgement of the truth, for they know not what they do.
