and Rachel saith, 'God hath decided for me, and also hath hearkened to my voice, and giveth to me a son;' therefore hath she called his name Dan.
Jehovah doth judge the peoples; Judge me, O Jehovah, According to my righteousness, And according to mine integrity on me,
By David. Judge me, O Jehovah, for I in mine integrity have walked, And in Jehovah I have trusted, I slide not.
Judge me, O God, And plead my cause against a nation not pious, From a man of deceit and perverseness Thou dost deliver me,
To the Overseer with stringed instruments. -- An instruction, by David, in the coming in of the Ziphim, and they say to Saul, 'Is not David hiding himself with us?' O God, by Thy name save me, and by Thy might judge me.
Near is He who is justifying me, Who doth contend with me? We stand together, who is mine opponent? Let him come nigh unto me.
That -- I have known my Redeemer, The Living and the Last, For the dust he doth rise.
Lo, I pray you, I have set in order the cause, I have known that I am righteous.
Who shall lay a charge against the choice ones of God? God is He that is declaring righteous,
For Jehovah doth judge His people, And for His servants doth repent Himself. For He seeth -- the going away of power, And none is restrained and left.
For Jehovah doth judge His people, And for His servants comforteth Himself.
and shall not God execute the justice to His choice ones, who are crying unto Him day and night -- bearing long in regard to them?
No weapon formed against thee prospereth, And every tongue rising against thee, In judgment thou condemnest. This is the inheritance of the servants of Jehovah, And their righteousness from me, an affirmation of Jehovah!
Jehovah hath brought forth our righteousnesses, Come, and we recount in Zion the work of Jehovah our God.
Thou hast pleaded, O Lord, the pleadings of my soul, Thou hast redeemed my life.
And hath brought out as light thy righteousness, And thy judgment as noon-day.
He beareth away a blessing from Jehovah, Righteousness from the God of his salvation.
1 Timothy 3:16
and, confessedly, great is the secret of piety -- God was manifested in flesh, declared righteous in spirit, seen by messengers, preached among nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory!
1 Samuel 25:39
and David heareth that Nabal is dead, and saith, 'Blessed is Jehovah who hath pleaded the cause of my reproach from the hand of Nabal, and His servant hath kept back from evil, and the wickedness of Nabal hath Jehovah turned back on his own head;' and David sendeth and speaketh with Abigail, to take her to him for a wife.
For Thou hast done my judgment and my right. Thou hast sat on a throne, A judge of righteousness.
They sing and rejoice, who are desiring my righteousness, And they say continually, 'Jehovah is magnified, Who is desiring the peace of His servant.'
