Vengeance is Mine


A brother who was hurt by another brother went to the Theban Sisois and said, “I want to get back at a brother who has hurt me.”

Sisois begged him, “Don’t do that, my son, leave vengeance in the hands of God.”

But he said, “I can’t rest until I get my own back.”

Sisois said, “My brother, let us pray.” Then standing, he prayed, “O God, we have no further need of you, for we can take vengeance by ourselves.”

The brother heard it and fell at the hermit’s feet, saying, “I won’t quarrel with my brother any longer; I beg you to forgive me.”
