However Kaydy we do see in the very same story of the forgiving king, that when the servant went out and was unforgiving for a fellow servant the king did not forgive him and instead exacted his rage on him. So then revenge can and should be used as it would be just. Matthew even goes and says

Shouldn’t you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?’ In anger, his master handed him over to the jailers to be tortured until he should pay back all he owed.

“This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother or sister from your heart.”

Showing that if we do not forgive like God has forgiven us then we will be subject to his rage, and revenge meaning that is is just in some situations for at least God to exact his revenge, and I am neither confirming nor denying if it is just in some particular instance for humans to have revenge, but for God I am in complete confirmation that He is just and He will give revenge to those its due
