Vengeance belongs to the Lord

Scripture reference

Romans 12:19 (ASV 1901)

19Avenge not yourselves, beloved, but give place unto the wrath of God: for it is written, Vengeance belongeth unto me; I will recompense, saith the Lord.


Akom was renowned for her zealousness in upholding the superstitious practices of her people. But after Akom is herself accused of witchcraft and exiled, she became a Christian and opened herself to the transforming power of the gospel. So great was Akom's transformation that she forgave her accuser despite temptations to seek revenge.
