When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth; and when the wicked perish, there is shouting.
Righteousness exalteth a nation; but sin is a reproach to peoples.
It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness; for the throne is established by righteousness.
Treasures of wickedness profit nothing; but righteousness delivereth from death.
Wealth profiteth not in the day of wrath; but righteousness delivereth from death.
And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance for ever.
In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression, for thou shalt not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near thee.
The righteousness of the perfect maketh plain his way; but the wicked falleth by his own wickedness.
The righteousness of the upright delivereth them; but the treacherous are taken in their own craving.
Is it any pleasure to the Almighty if thou art righteous? And is it gain to him that thou makest thy ways perfect?
and wisdom has been justified of all her children.
