To take satisfaction for an injury by inflicting suffering on the injuring party; to vindicate the just or a just cause by the defeat of the adversary; a term now restricted to the taking of just punishment, while revenge, originally synonymous, is the inflicting of pain or evil, maliciously, in an illegal manner. In the passive, to have or receive just satisfaction, by the punishment of the offender.
