And to him who wishes to sue you and take your tunic, yield to him your cloak also;
And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two.
If someone claims your tunic, a shirt-like undergarment, give him your cloak also. This will prove that you have no resistance. In verse 41 the Lord says, “And whoever shall compel you to go one mile, go with him two.” To turn the other cheek to the striker, to let the one who sues have the cloak, and to go with the compeller the second mile prove that the kingdom people have the power to suffer and to be meek instead of resisting and to walk not in the flesh, nor in the soul for their own interest, but in the spirit for the kingdom.
