LORD, You are my portion and my cup [of blessing]; You hold my future.
I know that the LORD upholds the just cause of the poor, justice for the needy.
Your throne, God, is forever and ever; the scepter of Your kingdom is a scepter of justice.
You love righteousness and hate wickedness; therefore God, your God, has anointed you, more than your companions, with the oil of joy.
God reigns over the nations; God is seated on His holy throne.
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; faithful love and truth go before You.
before the LORD, for He is coming-- for He is coming to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness and the peoples with His faithfulness.
before the LORD, for He is coming to judge the earth. He will judge the world righteously and the peoples fairly.
but He will judge the poor righteously and execute justice for the oppressed of the land. He will strike the land with discipline from His mouth, and He will kill the wicked with a command from His lips.
when reviled, He did not revile in return; when suffering, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to the One who judges justly.
