“Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;”
King James Version (KJV)

Ultimately, you certainly did the right thing by leaving off the debt & committing him to the Lord. But was it really a debt that he owed you, or did you gift him the money because of love & concern for his life? Usually, a debt to be paid needs a written declaration, or else it can be construed as a gift with no compulsion to repay. Whatever, I'm sure you have received the greater blessing for your kindness.

Someone was really sick. And had no money or insurance. I thought it was pneumonia. So I sold my diving tanks along with all the equipment to dive , everything. I sold it really cheep to obtain money quickly. Well , the person never paid me and after repeated times knocking on his door with no answer I gave up. The person who needed medical help pulled through with God's help. But I wonder how the dive trip ended out for him. I wanted revenge at first but backed away and moved on. That happened 40 years ago while traveling in San Bernardino California.
I had some idea about our God and Jesus Christ but didn't really understand much of the Bible until lately and the Commentary on 1 Thessalonians 1-6 brought this all back to mind. So now instead of revenge I prayed for him not knowing if he was alive or dead.

2 Thessalonians 1.6
Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you .
I do pray for all of these that they learn their lesson and find mercy in the end .
God is merciful and will forgive sins , but woe to them that offend one of these little ones ! ....

I think it is best to hand over every problem to God and allow him to handle it. He knows best how and when to do it. Because we are humans, we often judge in error but God who sees in secrets knows all. He said, vengeance is mine, i will recompense and because by two immutable in which God cannot lie, he will definitely pay back those who afflict us.

I think it is just as it is written.Its not what we think,its what is said.Someone was constantly hurting my husband so I took his name and picture and put it into the Bible on this verse.The person that made my husbands life miserable got cancer and died.I only asked God to take care of this matter and he did.I had no control over it.I did not ask for anyone to die!We cannot hurt others and expect to get by with it.We will pay for what we do.We are given permission to ask God to make them pay.If we try to pay them back on our own,its wrong because this is Gods business.Its only righteous if God is in it.
