Genesis 45:5-8

And now, be not grieved, and be not angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither, for God sent me before you to preserve life. For the famine has been these two years in the land; and yet there are five years in which there will be neither ploughing nor harvest. So God sent me before you to preserve you a remnant in the earth, and to save you alive by a great more.
And now it was not you that sent me here, but God; and he has made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and governor over all the land of Egypt.

Psalm 145:17

Jehovah is righteous in all his ways, and kind in all his works.

Job 11:7-9

Canst thou by searching find out +God? canst thou find out the Almighty to perfection? It is as the heights of heaven; what wilt thou do? deeper than Sheol; what canst thou know? The measure thereof is longer than the earth, and broader than the sea.

Daniel 4:35

And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing; and he doeth according to his will in the army of the heavens, and among the inhabitants of the earth; and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?

Wherefore did I come, and there was no man? I called, and there was none to answer? Is my hand at all shortened that I cannot redeem, or have I no power to deliver? behold, at my rebuke I dry up the sea, I make rivers a wilderness; their fish stink because there is no water, and die for thirst.

Psalm 119:75

I know, Jehovah, that thy Judgments are righteousness, and that in faithfulness thou hast afflicted me.

Psalm 37:1-40

{A Psalm of David.} Fret not thyself because of evil-doers, and be not envious of them that work unrighteousness; for they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and fade as the green herb. Confide in Jehovah, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on faithfulness;read more.
and delight thyself in Jehovah, and he will give thee the desires of thy heart. Commit thy way unto Jehovah, and rely upon him: he will bring it to pass; and he will bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. Rest in Jehovah, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him that prospereth in his way, because of the man that bringeth mischievous devices to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; fret not thyself: it would be only to do evil. For evil-doers shall be cut off; but those that wait on Jehovah, they shall possess the land. For yet a little while, and the wicked is not; and thou considerest his place, but he is not. But the meek shall possess the land, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of prosperity. The wicked plotteth against the righteous, and gnasheth his teeth against him. The Lord laugheth at him; for he seeth that his day is coming. The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the afflicted and needy, to slay those that are upright in the way: their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken. The little that the righteous hath is better than the abundance of many wicked; for the arms of the wicked shall be broken, but Jehovah upholdeth the righteous. Jehovah knoweth the days of the perfect; and their inheritance shall be for ever: they shall not be ashamed in the time of evil, and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied. For the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of Jehovah shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume, like smoke shall they consume away. The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again; but the righteous is gracious and giveth: for those blessed of him shall possess the land, and they that are cursed of him shall be cut off. The steps of a man are established by Jehovah, and he delighteth in his way: though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down, for Jehovah upholdeth his hand. I have been young, and now am old, and I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed seeking bread: all the day he is gracious and lendeth, and his seed shall be a blessing. Depart from evil, and do good, and dwell for evermore; for Jehovah loveth judgment, and will not forsake his saints: They are preserved for ever; but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off. The righteous shall possess the land, and dwell therein for ever. The mouth of the righteous proffereth wisdom, and his tongue speaketh judgment; the law of his God is in his heart; his goings shall not slide. The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him: Jehovah will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged. Wait for Jehovah, and keep his way, and he will exalt thee to possess the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it. I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading like a green tree in its native soil: but he passed away, and behold, he was not; and I sought him, but he was not found. Mark the perfect, and behold the upright, for the end of that man is peace; but the transgressors shall be destroyed together; the future of the wicked shall be cut off. But the salvation of the righteous is of Jehovah: he is their strength in the time of trouble. And Jehovah will help them and deliver them: he will deliver them from the wicked, and save them; for they trust in him.

Psalm 139:10

Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.

Psalm 145:15-16

The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their food in its season. Thou openest thy hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.

Habakkuk 1:12

Art thou not from everlasting, Jehovah my God, my Holy One? We shall not die. Jehovah, thou hast ordained him for judgment; and thou, O Rock, hast appointed him for correction.
