Interseting how words have been changed around a lot these days. There seem to be many who seek revenge as getting your bck in retribution for something that has been done to them.
Looking at the old use actually seems to highlight that showing us where we have gone wrong will be incorporated in the judgement process, so that that is a time of learning and correction.
