When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices. When the wicked perish, there is shouting.
Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.
It is an abomination for kings to do wrong, for the throne is established by righteousness.
Treasures of wickedness profit nothing, but righteousness delivers from death.
Riches don't profit in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death.
The work of righteousness will be peace; and the effect of righteousness, quietness and confidence forever.
In righteousness you shall be established: you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not be afraid; and from terror, for it shall not come near you.
The righteousness of the blameless will direct his way, but the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.
The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them, but the unfaithful will be trapped by evil desires.
Is it any pleasure to the Almighty, that you are righteous? Or does it benefit him, that you make your ways perfect?
Wisdom is justified by all her children."
