revenge / avenge
Would you be kind enough to explain to me the difference between the meaning of the words in bold in the following sentence?
"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."
I know that "avenge" = "take revenge for" = "revenge" = "vindicate" = "get satisfaction" = "repay"
Thank you for your efforts.
