35 zVengeance is mine, and recompense,
afor the time when their foot shall slip;
for bthe day of their calamity is at hand,
and their doom comes swiftly.’
41 if I lsharpen my flashing sword
and my hand takes hold on judgment,
I will take vengeance on my adversaries
and will repay those who hate me.
43 o“Rejoice with him, O heavens;
bow down to him, all gods,
for he pavenges the blood of his children
and takes vengeance on his adversaries.
He repays those who hate him
and cleanses his people's land.”
4 Say to those who have an anxious heart,
“Be strong; fear not!
aBehold, your God
will come with vengeance,
with the recompense of God.
He will come and save you.”
56 for a destroyer has come upon her,
her warriors are taken;
their bows are broken in pieces,
lfor the Lord is a God of recompense;
he will surely repay.
God's Wrath Against Nineveh
2 cThe Lord is a jealous and avenging God;
the Lord is avenging and wrathful;
dthe Lord takes vengeance on his adversaries
and ekeeps wrath for his enemies.
19 Beloved, mnever avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, n“Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”
