35  zVengeance is mine, and recompense,1

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 sword1

and my hand takes hold on judgment,

I will take vengeance on my adversaries

and will repay those who hate me.


43  oRejoice with him, O heavens;1

bow down to him, all gods,2

for he pavenges the blood of his children3

and takes vengeance on his adversaries.

He repays those who hate him4

and cleanses5 his people's land.6


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,

upon Babylon;

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

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 it1 to the wrath of God, for it is written, nVengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.
