Doing the Right Thing

Psalms 11:7
For the LORD is righteous, he loves justice; upright men will see his face.

Psalm 5:12 (New International Version)
Surely, Lord, you bless the righteous;  you surround them with your favor as with a shield.     

Isaiah 32:8 (New International Version, ©2011).
8 But the noble make noble plans,
   and by noble deeds they stand.

Genesis 18:26
New International Version (NIV)
26 The Lord said, “If I find fifty righteous people in the city of Sodom, I will spare the whole place for their sake. 

Job 1:1(NIV)
In the land of Uz there lived a man whose name was Job.This man was blameless and upright; he feared God and shunned evil.

Ecclesiastes 2:26(NIV)
To the person who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness, but to the sinner he gives the task of gathering and storing up wealth to hand it over to the one who pleases God. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind.

Proverbs 1:15
 15. My son, do not go along with them,
    do not set foot on their paths; 

Ecclessiastes 3:17

17 I said to myself,

“God will bring into judgment both the righteous and the wicked,for there will be a time for every activity, a time to judge every deed.”

Amos 5:15
Hate evil, love goodmaintain justice in the courts. Perhaps the Lord God Almighty will have mercy on the remnant of Joseph.

Job 33:23-30
Yet if there is an angel at their side,
    a messenger, one out of a thousand,
    sent to tell them how to be upright,
24 and he is gracious to that person and says to God,
    ‘Spare them from going down to the pit;
    I have found a ransom for them
25 let their flesh be renewed like a child’s;
    let them be restored as in the days of their youth’
26 then that person can pray to God and find favor with him,
    they will see God’s face and shout for joy;
    he will restore them to full well-being.
27 And they will go to others and say,
    ‘I have sinned, I have perverted what is right,
    but I did not get what I deserved.
28 God has delivered me from going down to the pit,
    and I shall live to enjoy the light of life.’

29 “God does all these things to a person
    twice, even three times
30 to turn them back from the pit,
    that the light of life may shine on them.
2 Samuel 22:31
31 “As for God, his way is perfect:     The Lord’s word is flawless;
    he shields all who take refuge in him. 

Matthew 5:48
"Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
