Revenge and the Bible

Revenge should be left in God's hands. "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." Romans 12:19, NIV.
"Do not say, 'I will pay you back for this wrong!' Wait for the Lord, and He will deliver you." Proverbs 20:22, NIV.

We should resist revenge in favor of love. It's in the Bible, "The law of Moses says, 'If a man gouges out another's eye, he must pay with his own eye. If a tooth gets knocked out, knock out the tooth of the one who did it.' But I say: Don't resist violence! If you are slapped on one cheek, turn the other too." Matthew 5:38-39, TLB.

Do not be happy when your enemy stumbles. "Do not gloat when your enemy falls; when he stumbles, do not let your heart rejoice, or the Lord will see and disapprove and turn his wrath away from him." Proverbs 24:17-18, NIV.
