Our Lord: the PERFECT Judge

This is a beautiful selection of Scriptures, carefully chosen to minimize your reading. I urge you to read them all.

Psalm 9:4, 8-10, 12, 16 For you [LORD] have maintained my just cause. You sit on the throne judging righteously. . . . He will judge the world in righteousness. He will administer judgment to the peoples in uprightness. The Lord will also be a high tower for the oppressed; a high tower in times of trouble. Those who know your name will put their trust in you, for you, the Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you. . . . The Lord has made himself known. He has executed judgment. The wicked is snared by the work of his own hands. . . .

Psalm 33:4-5 For the Lord’s word is right. All his work is done in faithfulness. He loves righteousness and justice. The earth is full of the loving kindness of the Lord.

Then all the trees of the woods shall sing for joy before the Lord; for he comes, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness, the peoples with his truth.

Psalm 103:6, 8-14 The Lord executes righteous acts, and justice for all who are oppressed. . . . The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness. He will not always accuse; neither will he stay angry forever. He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor repaid us for our iniquities. For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his loving kindness toward those who fear him. As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. Like a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him. For he knows how we are made. He remembers that we are dust.

Your dominion endures throughout all generations. The Lord is faithful in all his words, and loving in all his deeds. The Lord upholds all who fall, and raises up all those who are bowed down. The eyes of all wait for you. You give them their food in due season. You open your hand, and satisfy the desire of every living thing. The Lord is righteous in all his ways, and gracious in all his works.
