What does "Hashem yikom damam" mean? Does it imply Hashem will take revenge on the murderer?
Being that we believe every soul taken was a decision made by Hashem, even if it's impossible to understand. What is the role of Hashem avenging the blood?

    I think this question is "if all death comes about by Hashem's decree, i.e He is to blame, then why does He take revenge on the fulfillers of His decree?"
