For the Lord is righteous, He loves righteousness;
The upright will behold His face.
As for me, I shall behold Your face in righteousness;
I will be satisfied with Your likeness when I awake.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
He loves righteousness and justice;
The earth is full of the lovingkindness of the Lord.
“He does not withdraw His eyes from the righteous;
But with kings on the throne
He has seated them forever, and they are exalted.
For it is You who blesses the righteous man, O Lord,
You surround him with favor as with a shield.
O let the evil of the wicked come to an end, but establish the righteous;
For the righteous God tries the hearts and minds.
God is a righteous judge,
And a God who has indignation every day.
For You make him most blessed forever;
You make him joyful with gladness in Your presence.
Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him,
On those who hope for His lovingkindness,
The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous
And His ears are open to their cry.
Why are you in despair, O my soul?
And why have you become disturbed within me?
Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him
For the help of His presence.
The strength of the King loves justice;
You have established equity;
You have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob.
The Lord opens the eyes of the blind;
The Lord raises up those who are bowed down;
The Lord loves the righteous;
For I, the Lord, love justice,
I hate robbery in the burnt offering;
And I will faithfully give them their recompense
And make an everlasting covenant with them.
“For the eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous,
And His ears attend to their prayer,
But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”
Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that when He appears, we will be like Him, because we will see Him just as He is.
they will see His face, and His name will be on their foreheads.
