    This is grammatically correct, but seems meaningless to me.
    Is it some kind of metaphor?

    I'd suggest deletion of these two. (After TRANG's suggested 2 week wait to see if there are any objections.)

    Blood will have blood.
    血で血を洗う。

    Perhaps the other linked languages also need to be checked.

    Krew krwią się zmywa.
    Кровь смывается кровью.

    Maybe in some languages this is a call for revenge. But in languages where these words doesn't make sense, they should be deleted indeed.

    In "Wash blood with blood", I can sense a metaphor. Something similar to "An eye for an eye", but "Blood will have blood" I don't understand.
