We all have been through time where we have been encountered by someone who had offended us, and then we find something that would get them back good. The problem with that is, all it does is provoke more hate upon each other.

In 1 John 4:19-21 it says, We love because God first loved us. Whoever says, “I love God,” but hates his brother is a liar. The one who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love the God whom he has not seen.​

Which is a reasonable “comeback” for the situation. However, by saying that, you will be pressing hatred against the enemy.

This is why in Romans 12:18-20 It says: If it is possible on your part, live at peace with everyone. Do not avenge yourselves, beloved, but leave the room for God’s wrath. For it is written: “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the LORD On the contrary, “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him a drink. For in so doing, you will heap burning coals on his head.”

And in Leviticus 19:18: ‘You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the sons of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself; I am the LORD.​

So I think that is quite a bit of proof of why not to take revenge over the enemy. Don’t hate, and always remember to forgive. It is best to know what is right, and knowing that you did what was right.
