Ví dụ
"Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, 'Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,' says the Lord. Therefore 'If your enemy is hungry, feed him; If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.' Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."

Banks spoke for about 20 minutes, quoting Scripture throughout, including one from the 12th chapter of Romans, which the admonishment that being kind to an enemy was like “heaping coals of fire on his head.”
