This also were an iniquity to be punished by the judge:
for I should have denied the God that is above, If I
rejoiced at the destruction of him that hated me or lift
up myself when evil found him: Neither have I
suffered my mouth to sin by wishing a curse on his soul.
What is my usual reaction to the person who does me harm?
I cherish God and wish no harm.
O Holy One, please calm my soul and hold me close when I am tempted
to curse my enemy.
