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.”

It’s human nature to want to get even, to pay others back for what they’ve done to us, to even take the law into our own hands…but all it shows is our loss of control and self-restraint. The Greek word in this verse for God’s wrath – Orge – it’s an angry state of mind, but completely in control with rational and calculated desired results. Both Proverbs 20:22 and Proverbs 24:29 say the same thing…don’t repay evil with evil, but rather wait patiently for the Lord to take vengeance on your behalf.
