Karma In The Bible

These two Bible verses contradict each other, something is clearly off, first it says man must take the law in his own hands and then only God can in the second passage, and the same principle of Karma applies in the first passage DON'T give them too much only what they deserve, okay so we can punish people in the first passage of the OT but not in the second passage in the NT, only God can...okay that's confusing:

Psalm 28:4 Give them the punishment they so richly deserve! Measure it out in proportion to their wickedness. Pay them back for all their evil deeds! Give them a taste of what they have done to others



Romans 12:19 My friends, don’t try to punish anyone who does wrong to you. Wait for God to punish them with his anger. In the scriptures the Lord says, “I am the one who punishes; I will pay people back.”

People would read the bible as a whole... And say but because the Bible says we can punish people we are entitled to do so, and others would say based on the new testament (NT) that no it is wrong... So me thinks either the first (old) testament should fall away to prohibit other people hurting others when they have felt done wrong in some way, or the NT should go prohibiting any bad behaviour of retaliation, because what the BIBLE really is doing is giving people too much freedom of choice, which is odd, so you can do any two of them without worrying to be saved when you follow any two of these rules either harming others or not doing it.

And some would put themselves on a pedestal, praising themselves for getting back at someone who did them wrong and go to church with a happy face saying "well the Bible said so, I only followed the law"... Cool man, so much for Jesus's love All and forgive all, yet you still call yourself a "Jesus worshipper"... Okay... BTW jesus was born in the new testament, not in the old one... So if jesus did not exist during that time when the rules of the OT was layed down then you are not following jesus' law so you pretending to look all sweet and innocent in church after seriously hurting someone following the OT does not make you a follower of Jesus, but just a malignant arsehole who couldn't read the entire Bible, please stop pretending that you are true believer... Yes I would say to those who got hurt by these holier-than-thou types should rest in the NT and KARMA would get them, lest you aren't a true believer either get them back without remorse!!!!
