Do not say, “I’ll pay you back for this wrong!” Wait for the LORD, and he will deliver you.
From the beginning days of the law of Moses (Leviticus 19:18, :Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against one of your people, but love your neighbor as yourself”, through the sayings of the one God called the wisest of all men, (Proverbs 20:22), to the words of Paul in the New Testament. ( Romans 12:19 , Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay, ” says the Lord.)
For the Christian, this means practicing mercy, overlooking offenses, loving the unlovely. It means we entrust into the hand of God any injustices we have experienced.
