When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices, and when the wicked perish, there are feasts.
Righteousness exalts a people, but sin is a reproach to the nations.
It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness, for the throne is to be established with righteousness.
Treasures of wickedness profit nothing, but righteousness delivers from death.
Riches shall not profit in the day of wrath, but righteousness shall deliver from death.
And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness rest and security for ever.
With righteousness shalt thou be adorned: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear it; and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.
The righteousness of the perfect shall straighten his way, but the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.
The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them, but transgressors shall be imprisoned in their own sin.
Is it any pleasure to the Almighty that thou art justified? Or is it gain to him that thou makest thy ways perfect?
But wisdom is justified of all her children.
