From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    Smiting on the cheek was accounted a grievous injury and insult
    (Job 16:10; Lam. 3:30; Micah 5:1). The admonition (Luke 6:29),
    "Unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the
    other," means simply, "Resist not evil" (Matt. 5:39; 1 Pet.
    2:19-23). Ps. 3:7 = that God had deprived his enemies of the
    power of doing him injury.
