CEBCommon English Bible
8Finally, all of you be of one mind, sympathetic, lovers of your fellow believers, compassionate, and modest in your opinion of yourselves. 9Don’t pay back evil for evil or insult for insult. Instead, give blessing in return. You were called to do this so that you might inherit a blessing. 10For
those who want to love life
and see good days
should keep their tongue from evil speaking
and their lips from speaking lies.
11They should shun evil and do good;
seek peace and chase after it.
12The Lord’s eyes are on the righteous
and his ears are open to their prayers.
But the Lord cannot tolerate those who do evil.#Ps 34:12-16
