Comfort from the Word – Day 27

Righteousness

Bible text(s)

17If the LORD had not helped me,

I would have gone quickly to the land of silence.

18I said, “I am falling”;

but your constant love, O LORD, held me up.

19Whenever I am anxious and worried,

you comfort me and make me glad.

20You have nothing to do with corrupt judges,

who make injustice legal,

21who plot against good people

and sentence the innocent to death.

22But the LORD defends me;

my God protects me.

Psalms 94:17-22GNBOpen in Bible reader

The Justice of the Law of the LORD

137You are righteous, LORD,

and your laws are just.

138The rules that you have given

are completely fair and right.

Psalms 119:137-138GNBOpen in Bible reader

9He does not keep on rebuking;

he is not angry for ever.

10He does not punish us as we deserve

or repay us according to our sins and wrongs.

11As high as the sky is above the earth,

so great is his love for those who honour him.
