105 Bible Verses about Righteousness (2/5)

English Standard Version (ESV)
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they shall be satisfied.
Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him, and he will act.
He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
and your justice as the noonday.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
but the Lord delivers him out of them all.
No weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed,
and you shall refute every tongue that rises against you in judgment.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord
and their vindication from me, declares the Lord.
Open your mouth, judge righteously,
defend the rights of the poor and needy.
Therefore you have no excuse, O man, every one of you who judges. For in passing judgment on another you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, practice the very same things.
Learn to do good;
seek justice,
correct oppression;
bring justice to the fatherless,
plead the widow's cause.
Train up a child in the way he should go;
even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Cast your burden on the Lord,
and he will sustain you;
he will never permit
the righteous to be moved.
Search me, O God, and know my heart!
Try me and know my thoughts!
And see if there be any grievous way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting!
But let justice roll down like waters,
and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.
I will greatly rejoice in the Lord;
my soul shall exult in my God,
for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation;
he has covered me with the robe of righteousness,
as a bridegroom decks himself like a priest with a beautiful headdress,
and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.”
Go and learn what this means, ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’ For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
With his mouth the godless man would destroy his neighbor,
but by knowledge the righteous are delivered.
Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?
Righteousness exalts a nation,
but sin is a reproach to any people.
The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable,
but the mouth of the wicked, what is perverse.
He has told you, O man, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?
But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it— the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction.
Better is the little that the righteous has
than the abundance of many wicked.
For the arms of the wicked shall be broken,
but the Lord upholds the righteous.
For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for his name in serving the saints, as you still do.
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.
