Psalm 143:9 “Deliver me, O Lord, from my enemies ; In You I take shelter.” Lord, I praise you because you are my refuge and hiding place and the enemy cannot get me. Shelter me from the evil plans of my enemies . May they not succeed in the evil schemes they have against my life and the work you have called me to do.

2 Leave Vengeance to God Recognize and oppose evil, but don’t take God’s place. “Never take your own revenge” (Romans 12:17-21). “Love your enemies do good to them” (Luke 6:27).
Deliver me from my enemies , O God ; protect me from those who rise up against me . Deliver me from evildoers and save me from bloodthirsty men. God will go before me and will let me gloat over those who slander me . But do not kill them, O Lord our shield, or my people will forget.

I hope they can be of some use to you: Stop, breathe, detach yourself. Put yourself in their shoes. Seek to understand. Seek to accept. Forgive, and let the past go. Find something to love . See them as yourself, or a loved one. Find common ground.
Loving your enemies can also mean making an effort to interact and make peace with them. In the end, if you are able to establish some common ground and patch things up, you ‘ll have succeeded in making another friend. And who doesn’t need friends? This can also help you in working with people in the long run.

God punishes NO ONE, This is another false doctrine of many churches. The Bible says “the wages of sin is death”. Those who hurt you are sinning and they will die for it. We are all sinners so in the end we all die.
In Matthew 5, Jesus teaches us that we are to love even our enemies . “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy . ‘ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven” Matthew 5:43-45.
‘I will greatly praise the Lord with my mouth; yea, I will praise him among the multitude.
Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death; Lest mine enemy say , I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved. But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.
