Romans 12:21 is a comprehensive summary of Romans 12:19-20, that is, “be not carried away to revenge and retaliation (verse 19) by evil which is committed against you, but overcome the evil by the good which you show to your enemy (verse 20), put to shame by your noble spirit, ceases to act malignantly against you and becomes your friend”.
