BENEFITS for the RIGHTEOUS

The eyes of the Lord ; are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their cry. The face of the Lord ; is against those who do evil, To cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, And delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord ; is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the Lord delivers him out of them all.
{Psalms 34:15-19}

I have been young, and now am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his descendants begging bread. For the Lord loves justice, And does not forsake His saints; They are preserved forever, But the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off. The righteous shall inherit the land, And dwell in it forever. The mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom, And his tongue talks of justice. Mark the blameless man, and observe the upright; For the future of that man is peace. But the salvation of the righteous is from the Lord ; He is their strength in the time of trouble. And the Lord shall help them and deliver them; He shall deliver them from the wicked, And save them, Because they trust in Him.
[Psalms 37:25, 28-30, 37, 39-40]

The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
(Psalms 92:12)

The Lord will not allow the righteous soul to famish, But He casts away the desire of the wicked. The mouth of the righteous is a well of life, But violence covers the mouth of the wicked. The labor of the righteous leads to life, The wages of the wicked to sin. The lips of the righteous feed many, But fools die for lack of wisdom. When the whirlwind passes by, the wicked is no more, But the righteous has an everlasting foundation. The righteous will never be removed, But the wicked will not inhabit the earth. The mouth of the righteous brings forth wisdom, But the perverse tongue will be cut out. The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable, But the mouth of the wicked what is perverse.
[Proverbs 10:3, 11-11, 16, 21-21, 25, 30-32 ].

He who trusts in his riches will fall, But the righteous will flourish like foliage. The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, And he who wins souls is wise.{Proverbs 11:28,30}

The Lord is far from the wicked, But He hears the prayer of the righteous.
{Proverbs 15:29 }

For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their prayers; But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.” And who is he who will harm you if you become followers of what is good? But even if you should suffer for righteousness’ sake, you are blessed. “And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled.” But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear; having a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers, those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed. For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.{1 Peter 3:12-17}

Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.{James 5:16}
