And men will say, “Surely there is a reward for the righteous; Surely there is a God who judges on earth!”
Let the nations be glad and sing for joy; For You will judge the peoples with uprightness And guide the nations on the earth. Selah.
Say to the righteous that it will go well with them, For they will eat the fruit of their actions.
And He will judge the world in righteousness; He will execute judgment for the peoples with equity.
The Lord has made Himself known; He has executed judgment. In the work of his own hands the wicked is snared. Higgaion Selah.
The Lord has rewarded me according to my righteousness; According to the cleanness of my hands He has recompensed me.
Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, On those who hope for His lovingkindness,
Then all men will fear, And they will declare the work of God, And will consider what He has done.
Surely in vain I have kept my heart pure And washed my hands in innocence;
To declare that the Lord is upright; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.
Rise up, O Judge of the earth, Render recompense to the proud.
Before the Lord, for He is coming, For He is coming to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness And the peoples in His faithfulness.
Before the Lord, for He is coming to judge the earth; He will judge the world with righteousness And the peoples with equity.
You have wearied the Lord with your words. Yet you say, “How have we wearied Him?” In that you say, “ Everyone who does evil is good in the sight of the Lord, and He delights in them,” or, “ Where is the God of justice?”
You have said, ‘It is vain to serve God; and what profit is it that we have kept His charge, and that we have walked in mourning before the Lord of hosts?
But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath for yourself in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God,
Therefore what benefit were you then deriving from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the outcome of those things is death.
and saying, “ Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.”
