97 Bible Verses about Righteousness - Page 2

for they will be filled.
Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him and he will do this:

your vindication like the noonday sun.
The righteous person may have many troubles,

Speak up and judge fairly;
defend the rights of the poor and needy.

Defend the oppressed.

plead the case of the widow.
Cast your cares on the Lord
and he will sustain you;
he will never let
the righteous be shaken.

and even when they are old they will not turn from it.

See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
I delight greatly in the Lord;
my soul rejoices in my God.

and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,
as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest,

righteousness like a never-failing stream!

and to walk humbly with your God.
God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.
