Today’s Daf Yomi Question:

The Gemara says that there were two ‘nekamos’ (revenges) one was good and one bad.  Rashi explains the bad nekama was Hashem’s vengeance on the nations for rejecting the Torah, and the good was Hashem’s freeing their mammon to Yisroel on account of their refusal to receive the Torah.  If it is viewed from the nations’ perspective then certainly both can be considered bad revenges, alternately if we are viewing from Yisroel’s viewpoint they are both considered good, why then do we say that one is bad and one good?
