The Lord executes acts of righteousness
and justice for all the oppressed.
executing justice for the exploited
and giving food to the hungry.
The Lord frees prisoners.
Spread Your faithful love over those who know You,
and Your righteousness over the upright in heart.
Will not God grant justice to His elect who cry out to Him day and night? Will He delay to help them?
For the choir director: with stringed instruments. A Davidic psalm.Answer me when I call,
God, who vindicates me.
You freed me from affliction;
be gracious to me and hear my prayer.
2 Thessalonians 1:6
since it is righteous for God to repay with affliction those who afflict you
Because of Your name, Yahweh,
let me live.
In Your righteousness deliver me from trouble,
They rejoice in Your name all day long,
and they are exalted by Your righteousness.
Lord, in keeping with all Your righteous acts, may Your anger and wrath turn away from Your city Jerusalem, Your holy mountain; for because of our sins and the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and Your people have become an object of ridicule to all those around us.
Because I have sinned against Him,
I must endure the Lord’s rage
until He argues my case
and establishes justice for me.
He will bring me into the light;
I will see His salvation.
God presented Him as a propitiation through faith in His blood, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His restraint God passed over the sins previously committed.
