“He will bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your justice as the noonday.” Psalm 37:6 (ESV)

“The steps of a [good] man are established [ordered] by the Lord, when he delights in his way.” Psalm 37:23 (ESV)

“Wait for the Lord and keep his way, and he will exalt you to inherit the land; you will look on when the wicked are cut off.” Psalm 37:34 (ESV)
