Vengeance

(Have the Goodie read to you!)

Recompense to no man evil for evil… Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, “Vengeance is mine; I will repay,” saith the Lord … Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good (Romans 12:17-21).

God reserves all “vengeance” to Himself, not because wrathful revenge is a temper or quality that can have any place in the holy Deity, but because the holy supernatural Deity, being free from all of the properties of nature, whence partial love and hatred spring, and being in Himself nothing but an infinity of love, wisdom and goodness, He alone knows how to overrule the disorders of nature, that the highest good may be promoted by it.
