The Sepher Sephiroth lists The Lord of War = איש מל חמה adding to a value of 434. Which is equivalent to דלת with the known attributions.

Love under Will again.
But on the other hand also: If you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him.

The idea of karma for Vengeance is pretty much in line with what wikipedia has to say about Nemesis, the goddess of revenge:

The name Nemesis is related to the Greek word νέμειν [némein], meaning "to give what is due".
and later:

O. Gruppe (1906) and others connect the name with "to feel just resentment".
From the 4th century onwards, Nemesis, as the just balancer of Fortune's chance, could be associated with Tyche.

In the Greek tragedies Nemesis appears chiefly as the avenger of crime and the punisher of hubris, and as such is akin to Atë and the Erinyes.
She was sometimes called Adrasteia, probably meaning "one from whom there is no escape";
her epithet Erinys ("implacable") is specially applied to Demeter and the Phrygian mother goddess, Cybele.
But if you're in love, and you just got "killed" by your opponent, you know what revenge means.
