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:
For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness.
Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honour.
But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
The righteous is more excellent than his neighbour: but the way of the wicked seduceth them.
Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.
Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked. Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart. Rejoice in the Lord, ye righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
