He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken,
nor his seed begging bread.
For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory:
no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life:
but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him:
but the desire of the righteous shall be granted.
Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground:
for it is time to seek the Lord, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness;
and all these things shall be added unto you.
Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all
and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.) Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life. For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous. Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound: That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness;
and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink;
but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
1 Cor. 1:30
But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom,
and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.
Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham.
And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
