    Notice two words conveniently found in Hebrews 10:30-35 (KJV) --

    For we know him that hath said, Vengeance [belongeth] unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
    [It is] a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
    But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;
    Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used.
    For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.
    Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.
    "Recompense" (with an s) occurs in the KJV 26 times; "recompence" (with a c) is found 20 times. Is there a difference in the meaning?
