Genesis 45:5-8

So now, do not be distressed and do not be angry {with yourselves} that you sold me here, for God sent me as deliverance before you. For these two years the famine [has been] in the midst of the land, but [there will be] five more years where there is no plowing or harvest. And God sent me before you [all] to preserve for you a remnant in the land and to keep alive among you many more.
So now, you yourselves did not send me here, but God put me here as father to Pharaoh and as master of all his household, and a ruler over all the land of Egypt.

Yahweh [is] righteous in all his ways, and loyal in all his works.

Job 11:7-9

"Can you find [out] the essence of God, or can you find [out] {the ultimate limits} of Shaddai? {It is higher than the heaven}; what can you do? [It is] deeper than Sheol; what can you know? Its measure [is] longer than [the] earth and broader than [the] sea.

Daniel 4:35

And all the dwellers of the earth are regarded as nothing, and he does {according to} his desire in the host of heaven and [among] the dwellers of earth, and there is not [one] who can hold back his hand, or {ask him}, 'What are you doing?'

Isaiah 50:2

Why was there no man when I came, no one who answered when I called? {Do I lack the strength to save}? Or [is there] no power in me to deliver? Look! by my rebuke I dry up [the] sea; I {make} [the] rivers a desert; their fish stink because there is no water, and they die because of thirst.

Psalm 75:6

For [it is] not from [the] east or [the] west and not from [the] south [that] lifting up [comes],

1 Chronicles 29:11

To you, O Yahweh, [is] the greatness and the power and the splendor and the glory and the strength, for everything in the heavens and in the earth. Yours, O Yahweh, [is] the kingdom and exaltation over all as head!

Psalm 119:75

I know, O Yahweh, that your judgments [are] right, and [that] in faithfulness you afflicted me.

Psalm 37:1-40

Do not fret because of evildoers; do not be envious of doers of wickedness. For like the grass they will dry up quickly, and like green vegetation they will wither. Trust Yahweh and do good. Abide [in the] land and feed on more.
Take pleasure in Yahweh as well, and he will give to you the requests of your heart. {Commit to} Yahweh your way; Trust also on him and he will act. Then he will bring forth your righteousness like the light, and your justice like the noonday. Be quiet before Yahweh and wait for him. Do not fret about one who succeeds [in] his way, about a man making plots. Refrain from anger and forsake wrath. Do not fret; [it] only brings evil. For evildoers will be cut off, but those who wait for Yahweh-- they will possess [the] land. And yet a little [while] and the wicked will not be, and you will look carefully upon his place, but he will not be. But [the] afflicted will possess [the] land, and they will take pleasure in an abundance of peace. [The] wicked plans [evil] against the righteous, and gnashes at him [with] his teeth. [The] Lord laughs at him, for he sees that his day is coming. [The] wicked have drawn [the] sword and have bent their bow to throw down [the] poor and [the] needy, to kill [those] upright in [their] way. Their sword will enter into their [own] heart, and their bows shall be broken. [The] little belonging to the righteous [is] better than [the] wealth of many wicked. For [the] arms of [the] wicked shall be broken, but Yahweh supports [the] righteous. Yahweh knows [the] days of [the] blameless, and their inheritance will be forever. They will not be put to shame in distressing times, and in [the] days of famine they will be satisfied. But [the] wicked will perish, and the enemies of Yahweh [will be] like [the] splendor of [the] pastures. They vanish; in smoke they vanish. [The] wicked borrows and does not repay, but [the] righteous [is] gracious and gives. For those blessed [by] him shall possess [the] land, but those cursed [by] him shall be cut off. [The] steps of a man are established by Yahweh, and he takes pleasure in his way. Though he fall, he will not be cast headlong, for Yahweh supports [him with] his hand. I was a youth, but I am [now] old; yet I have not seen [the] righteous forsaken or his children {begging for} bread. All the day he [is] gracious and lends, and his children [are] a blessing. Turn aside from evil and do good and [so] abide forever. For Yahweh loves justice and will not forsake his faithful ones. They are protected forever. But [the] children of [the] wicked will be cut off. [The] righteous will possess [the] land and abide in it forever. [The] mouth of [the] righteous utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks justice. The law of his God [is] in his heart. His steps will not slip. [The] wicked watches for the righteous and seeks to kill him. Yahweh will not abandon him into his hand, and he will not let him be condemned when he is judged. Wait for Yahweh and keep his way, and he will exalt you to possess [the] land. When [the] wicked are cut off, you will see [it]. I have seen [the] wicked acting violently and spreading himself out like a luxuriant native tree. Then he passed on and behold, he was not. And I sought him, but he could not be found. Observe [the] blameless and look at [the] upright, for [there is] a future for a man of peace. But transgressors shall be destroyed altogether. [The] future of [the] wicked shall be cut off. And [the] salvation of [the] righteous [is] from Yahweh, their refuge in [the] time of trouble. And Yahweh helps them and he rescues them. He rescues them from [the] wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in him.

Psalm 139:10

even there your hand would lead me, and your right hand would hold me fast.

Psalm 145:15-16

[The] eyes of all look hopefully to you, and you give them their food in due time, opening your hand, and satisfying [the] desire [of] every living creature.

Habakkuk 1:12

Are you not from of old, O Yahweh my God, my Holy One? You shall not die. O Yahweh, you have marked them for judgment; O Rock, you have established them for reproof.

Romans 11:36

For from him and through him and to him [are] all [things]. To him [be] glory for eternity! Amen.
