Righteousness (3/5)

  • Better the little that the righteous have
    than the wealth of many wicked;
    for the power of the wicked will be broken,
    but the Lord upholds the righteous.
  • I delight greatly in the Lord;
    my soul rejoices in my God.
    For he has clothed me with garments of salvation
    and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,
    as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest,
    and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
  • 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.
  • But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.
  • You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.
  • “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.”
  • “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.
  • 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.’
  • The Lord is righteous in all his ways
    and faithful in all he does.
  • The Lord loves righteousness and justice;
    the earth is full of his unfailing love.
  • In you, Lord, I have taken refuge;
    let me never be put to shame;
    deliver me in your righteousness.
  • Start children off on the way they should go,
    and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
  • 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!
  • Then Peter began to speak: “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts from every nation the one who fears him and does what is right.”
  • Blessed are those whose ways are blameless,
    who walk according to the law of the Lord.
  • Do not envy the violent
    or choose any of their ways.
    For the Lord detests the perverse
    but takes the upright into his confidence.
  • 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.
  • Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Lord, hear my prayer,
    listen to my cry for mercy;
    in your faithfulness and righteousness
    come to my relief.
  • 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 name of the righteous is used in blessings,
    but the name of the wicked will rot.
  • Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness.
  • He holds success in store for the upright,
    he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless.

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
