For surely, O LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart and has no slander on his tongue, who does his neighbor no wrong and casts no slur on his fellowman, who despises a vile man but honors those who fear the LORD, who keeps his oath even when it hurts, who lends his money without usury and does not accept a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things will never be shaken.
The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry.
The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles.
A righteous man may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all.
The power of the wicked will be broken, but the LORD upholds the righteous.
I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread.
The LORD gives sight to the blind, the LORD lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves the righteous.
The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon.
Blessings crown the head of the righteous, but violence overwhelms the mouth of the wicked.
For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: "The righteous will live by faith."
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.
1 Peter 3:12
For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!
Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place.
2 Timothy 2:22
Flee the evil desires of youth, and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
True Righteousness Comes Only Through Jesus Christ
1 Corinthians 1:30-31
30 It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God -- that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 31 Therefore, as it is written: "Let him who boasts boast in the Lord."
2 Corinthians 5:20-21
20 We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God. 21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 21 I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!"
