"How do we know that one who is to forgive may not be cruel? It is written (Bereishit 20), ‘And Avraham prayed to Gd, and Gd healed Avimelech…’"

[The cited passage from Bereishit follows the incident in which Avimelech kidnapped Sarah, Avraham's wife. Granted that Avimelech was unaware that Sarah was Avraham's wife, Avraham might still have been angry and less-than-willing to pray for Gd to heal Avimelech.]

(Mishnah, Bava Kama 8:7)

Have a great day,
