The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked
On all the line a sudden vengeance waits, And frequent hearses shall besiege your gates.Alexander Pope
A great man, I take it, is a man so inspired and permeated with the ideas of God and the Christly spirit as to be too magnanimous for vengeance, and too unselfish to seek his own ends.thomas david
Nor one feeling of vengeance presumed to defile The cause, or the men, or the Emerald Isle.
It was manifest to me that there was something in the Roman Catholic religion which made the priests very dear to the people; for I doubt whether in any village in England, had such an accident happened to the rector, all the people would have roused themselves at midnight to wreak their vengeance on the assailant.Anthony Trollope
Human government, the embodied effort of man to rule the world without God, ruled over by "the prince of this world," the devil. Its mission is to execute wrath and vengeance here on earth. Human government bears the same relation to hell as the church bears to heaven.david lipscomb

Impenetrable in their dissimulation, cruel in their vengeance, tenacious in their purposes, unscrupulous as to their methods, animated by profound and hidden hatred for the tyranny of man it is as though there exists among them an ever-present conspiracy toward domination, a sort of alliance like that subsisting among the priests of every country.Denis Diderot
Delay in vengeance gives a heavier blow.
I have the feeling that this Moscow Pact will at some time or other exact vengeance upon National Socialism.alfred rosenberg
The tables have turned, yes, the tables have turned with a vengeance! You've come around to my old way of thinking and I to yours like two people exchanging a call on each other at the same time, and each one finding the other one gone out, the door locked against him and no one to answer the bell!tennessee williams
Thus when a barber and collier fight, The barber beats the luckless collier white; The dusty collier heaves his ponderous sack, And, big with vengeance, beats the barber black. In comes the brick-dust man. with grime o'erspread, And beats the collier and the barber red; Black, red, and white, in various clouds are toss'd, And in the dust they raise the combatants are lost.Christopher Smart
When at the close of each sad, sorrowing day, Fancy restores what vengeance snatch'd away.Alexander Pope
Gossip and reputation make sure that what comes around - a person who is cruel will find that the others are cruel hack to him, and a person who is kind will find others are kind in return.

As long as everyone plays tit-for-tat augmented by gratitude, vengeance, and gossip, the whole system should work beautifully.
If man had his way, the plan of redemption would be an endless and bloody conflict. In reality, salvation was bought not by Jesus ' fist, but by His nail-pierced hands; not by muscle but by love; not by vengeance but by forgiveness ; not by force but by sacrifice . Jesus Christ our Lord surrendered in order that He might win ; He destroyed His enemies by dying for them and conquered death by allowing death to conquer Him.
O war! thou son of hell, Whom angry heavens do make their minister, Throw in the frozen bosoms of our part Hot coals of vengeance! Let no soldier fly. He that is truly dedicate to war Hath no self-love, nor he that loves himself, Hath not essentially but by circumstance The name of valour.
Loud o'er my head though awful thunders roll, And vivid lightnings flash from pole to pole, Yet 'tis Thy voice, my God, that bids them fly, Thy arm directs those lightnings through the sky. Then let the good Thy mighty name revere, And hardened sinners Thy just vengeance fear.walter scott
This will be the issue of that darling Plea, of being one and not two; it will be turned upon the Scots with a vengeance; and their 45 Scots Members may dance round to all Eternity, in thisTrap of their own making.Andrew Fletcher (of Saltoun)
