A collection of biblical encouragement
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.”
The Lord raises up the poor from the dust; he lifts the needy from the ash heap to make them sit with princes and inherit a seat of honor.
You shall not pervert the justice due to your poor in his lawsuit... And you shall take no bribe, for a bribe blinds the clear-sighted and subverts the cause of those who are in the right.
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God, who is not partial and takes no bribe. He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the sojourner, giving him food and clothing. Love the sojourner, therefore, for you were sojourners in the land of Egypt.
Listen to me, my people; hear me, my nation: Instruction will go out from me; my justice will become a light to the nations. My righteousness draws near speedily, my salvation is on the way, and my arm will bring justice to the nations. The islands will look to me and wait in hope for my arm.
The LORD loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of his unfailing love.
Do not pervert justice; do not show partiality to the poor or favoritism to the great, but judge your neighbor fairly.
The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern.
Follow justice and justice alone, so that you may live and possess the land the LORD your God is giving you.
This is what the LORD Almighty said: ‘Administer true justice; show mercy and compassion to one another.
Blessed are those who act justly, who always do what is right.
When justice is done, it is a joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers.
Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the LORD understand it completely.
But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!
Turn from evil and do good; then you will dwell in the land forever. For the LORD loves the just and will not forsake his faithful ones. Wrongdoers will be completely destroyed; the offspring of the wicked will perish. The righteous will inherit the land and dwell in it forever.
Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!
He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
For I, the LORD, love justice; I hate robbery and wrongdoing. In my faithfulness I will reward my people and make an everlasting covenant with them. Their descendants will be known among the nations and their offspring among the peoples. All who see them will acknowledge that they are a people the LORD has blessed.
Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.
