105 Bible Verses about Righteousness (3/5)

« 1 Peter 2:24 »
“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”
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.
Better a little with righteousness
than much gain with injustice.
In you, Lord, I have taken refuge;
let me never be put to shame;
deliver me in your righteousness.
“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything.
Christ is the culmination of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.
Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you;
therefore he will rise up to show you compassion.
For the Lord is a God of justice.
Blessed are all who wait for him!
There is a way that appears to be right,
but in the end it leads to death.
This is what the Lord Almighty said: ‘Administer true justice; show mercy and compassion to one another. Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the foreigner or the poor. Do not plot evil against each other.’
For the Lord is our judge,
the Lord is our lawgiver,
the Lord is our king;
it is he who will save us.
The Lord is righteous in all his ways
and faithful in all he does.
Lord, hear my prayer,
listen to my cry for mercy;
in your faithfulness and righteousness
come to my relief.
Then you will understand what is right and just
and fair—every good path.
Blessings crown the head of the righteous,
but violence overwhelms the mouth of the wicked.
The Lord loves righteousness and justice;
the earth is full of his unfailing love.
For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.
The wicked borrow and do not repay,
but the righteous give generously.
Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin.
Good and upright is the Lord;
therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.
He guides the humble in what is right
and teaches them his way.
The name of the righteous is used in blessings,
but the name of the wicked will rot.
Blessed are those whose ways are blameless,
who walk according to the law of the Lord.
For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous
and his ears are attentive to their prayer,
but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.
The tongue of the righteous is choice silver,
but the heart of the wicked is of little value.
But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its rays. And you will go out and frolic like well-fed calves.
Do not envy the violent
or choose any of their ways.
For the Lord detests the perverse
but takes the upright into his confidence.
