Proverbs 25:21, 22 reads, “If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink: for thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the Lord shall reward thee.” The application is often that you ought to repay good for evil, and that is a general interpretation. But there is a spiritual interpretation.
