In Deuteronomy 32:35 Romans 12:19 Hebrews 10:30 Jude 1:7 , means retributive justice- a prerogative of God with which those interfere who seek to avenge themselves. So also in Acts 28:4 ; though many suppose that the islanders meant the goddess of justice, Dike, whom the Greeks and Romans regarded as a daughter of Jupiter, and feared as an independent, just, and unappeasable deity.
