Genesis 45:5-8

And now don’t be worried or angry with yourselves for selling me here, because God sent me ahead of you to preserve life. For the famine has been in the land these two years, and there will be five more years without plowing or harvesting. God sent me ahead of you to establish you as a remnant within the land and to keep you alive by a great more.
Therefore it was not you who sent me here, but God. He has made me a father to Pharaoh, lord of his entire household, and ruler over all the land of Egypt.

Psalm 145:17

The Lord is righteous in all His ways
and gracious in all His acts.

Job 11:7-9

Can you fathom the depths of God
or discover the limits of the Almighty? They are higher than the heavens—what can you do?
They are deeper than Sheol—what can you know? Their measure is longer than the earth
and wider than the sea.

Daniel 4:35

All the inhabitants of the earth are counted as nothing,
and He does what He wants with the army of heaven
and the inhabitants of the earth.
There is no one who can hold back His hand
or say to Him, “What have You done?”

Isaiah 50:2

Why was no one there when I came?
Why was there no one to answer when I called?
Is My hand too short to redeem?
Or do I have no power to deliver?
Look, I dry up the sea by My rebuke;
I turn the rivers into a wilderness;
their fish rot because of lack of water
and die of thirst.

1 Chronicles 29:11

Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the splendor and the majesty, for everything in the heavens and on earth belongs to You. Yours, Lord, is the kingdom, and You are exalted as head over all.

Psalm 37:1-40

Davidic.Do not be agitated by evildoers;
do not envy those who do wrong. For they wither quickly like grass
and wilt like tender green plants. Trust in the Lord and do what is good;
dwell in the land and live more.
Take delight in the Lord,
and He will give you your heart’s desires. Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in Him, and He will act, making your righteousness shine like the dawn,
your justice like the noonday. Be silent before the Lord and wait expectantly for Him;
do not be agitated by one who prospers in his way,
by the man who carries out evil plans. Refrain from anger and give up your rage;
do not be agitated—it can only bring harm. For evildoers will be destroyed,
but those who put their hope in the Lord
will inherit the land. A little while, and the wicked person will be no more;
though you look for him, he will not be there. But the humble will inherit the land
and will enjoy abundant prosperity. The wicked person schemes against the righteous
and gnashes his teeth at him. The Lord laughs at him
because He sees that his day is coming. The wicked have drawn the sword and strung the bow
to bring down the afflicted and needy
and to slaughter those whose way is upright. Their swords will enter their own hearts,
and their bows will be broken. The little that the righteous man has is better
than the abundance of many wicked people. For the arms of the wicked will be broken,
but the Lord supports the righteous. The Lord watches over the blameless all their days,
and their inheritance will last forever. They will not be disgraced in times of adversity;
they will be satisfied in days of hunger. But the wicked will perish;
the Lord’s enemies, like the glory of the pastures,
will fade away—
they will fade away like smoke. The wicked man borrows and does not repay,
but the righteous one is gracious and giving. Those who are blessed by Him will inherit the land,
but those cursed by Him will be destroyed. A man’s steps are established by the Lord,
and He takes pleasure in his way. Though he falls, he will not be overwhelmed,
because the Lord holds his hand. I have been young and now I am old,
yet I have not seen the righteous abandoned
or his children begging for bread. He is always generous, always lending,
and his children are a blessing. Turn away from evil and do what is good,
and dwell there forever. For the Lord loves justice
and will not abandon His faithful ones.
They are kept safe forever,
but the children of the wicked will be destroyed. The righteous will inherit the land
and dwell in it permanently. The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom;
his tongue speaks what is just. The instruction of his God is in his heart;
his steps do not falter. The wicked one lies in wait for the righteous
and seeks to kill him; the Lord will not leave him
in the power of the wicked one
or allow him to be condemned when he is judged. Wait for the Lord and keep His way,
and He will exalt you to inherit the land.
You will watch when the wicked are destroyed. I have seen a wicked, violent man
well-rooted like a flourishing native tree. Then I passed by and noticed he was gone;
I searched for him, but he could not be found. Watch the blameless and observe the upright,
for the man of peace will have a future. But transgressors will all be eliminated;
the future of the wicked will be destroyed. The salvation of the righteous is from the Lord,
their refuge in a time of distress. The Lord helps and delivers them;
He will deliver them from the wicked and will save them
because they take refuge in Him.

Psalm 139:10

even there Your hand will lead me;
Your right hand will hold on to me.

Psalm 145:15-16

All eyes look to You,
and You give them their food at the proper time. You open Your hand
and satisfy the desire of every living thing.

Habakkuk 1:12

Are You not from eternity, Yahweh my God?
My Holy One, You will not die.
Lord, You appointed them to execute judgment;
my Rock, You destined them to punish us.
