1/ What's the difference between "revengeful" and "vengeful"?

2/ What's the difference among "rebuke", "reproach" and "criticize"?

revengeful: desiring and seeking vengeance while vengeful means only desiring vengeance (that is, revengeful indicates a stronger action)

it is also the dgree of judgement: while criticize means discuss the good as the well as the bad, reproach means to blame (i.e., expressing disapproval), and rebuke means censure strongly and, probably, angrily.
