(Strong's #1349 — Noun Feminine — dike — dee'-kay )

primarily "custom, usage," came to denote "what is right;" then, "a judicial hearing;" hence, "the execution of a sentence," "punishment," 2 Thessalonians 1:9 , RV; Jude 1:7 , "punishment," RV (AV, "vengeance"). In Acts 28:4 (AV, "vengeance") it is personified and denotes the goddess Justice or Nemesis (Lat., Justitia), who the Melita folk supposed was about to inflict the punishment of death upon Paul by means of the viper. See PUNISHMENT , VENGEANCE.
