Lamentations 3:30

He giveth [his] cheek to him that smiteth him
Either to God that afflicts him, and patiently bears it; see (Isaiah 9:13) ; or rather to men. To be smitten on the cheek is always reckoned a very great affront; to turn the cheek to an injurious man is to give him an opportunity and leave to smite, and signifies the taking of it patiently, and agrees both with our Lord's advice and example, (Matthew 5:39) (Isaiah 50:6) ; he is filled full with reproach;
has many reproaches, and the reproaches of many upon him; as such must expect, that take Christ's yoke upon them; see (Psalms 123:3,4) ; and yet revile not again, but esteem reproaches for Christ's sake great riches, and wear them as crowns, and bind them about their necks as chains of gold; esteeming it an honour and a happiness to suffer shame for his name.
