Spanish has so many persons, tenses, and moods there are not enough verb conjugations to go around. Some conjugations have to do double duty.
Many conjugations are also words in other parts of speech, such as vino, which is a verb conjugation and also "wine." The conjugation meaning is never shown in a Spanish-English dictionary.

Venir and vengar
Venir means "to come" and vengar means "to avenge." The word vengamos is a conjugation of both verbs, and in vengar it is a present-tense conjugation and a past-tense one, so ¡Vengamos! ¡Vengamos! ¡Vengamos! means "We avenge! Let us come! We avenged!"
