19 Beloved, (A)never avenge yourselves, but leave it[a] to the wrath of God, for it is written, (B)“Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”
19 Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say,
“I will take revenge; I will pay them back,”[a] says the Lord.
