Building on Luke’s arguement, I will supply this verse from Romans 12:19
“Friends, do not avenge yourselves; instead, leave room for God’s wrath, because it is written, <b class=”quote”>Vengeance belongs to me; I will repay,</b> says the Lord.” (emphasis added. Taken from the Christian Standard Bible translation)
So, as Luke said, vengeance is God’s, and he will repay and vengance is not for humans.
In case there are any who would call my out for using ‘vengeance’ instead of revenge, they are synonamous. The Encarta Dictionary affirms this definition saying vengeance is “revenge: punishment that is inflicted in return for a wrong.”
