'Rightfully' in the Bible
He's treating us like foreigners. He sold us and spent all of the money that rightfully belonged to us.
Praise is rightfully Yours, God, in Zion; vows to You will be fulfilled.
I know, LORD, that your decrees are just, and that you have rightfully humbled me.
To respect the person of the wicked so that the righteous loses that which is rightfully his is not good.
Shall the prey be taken from the mighty? and shall he that is rightfully captive be delivered?
"Then there will arise in his place a despicable person to whom the royal honor has not been rightfully conferred. He will come on the scene in a time of prosperity and will seize the kingdom through deceit.
We are not commending ourselves to you again, but we are providing you with an occasion and incentive to be [rightfully] proud of us, so that you may have a reply for those who pride themselves on surface appearances [ on the virtues they only appear to have], although their heart is devoid of them.
