"The Lord is righteous in all His ways..."
"...while following the way of Thy judgments, O Lord,
We have waited for Thee eagerly;
Thy name, even Thy memory, is the desire of our souls.
At night with my soul I long for Thee,
Indeed, with my spirit I seek Thee diligently;
For when the earth has Thy judgments
The inhabitants of the earth learn righteousness."
Isaiah 26:8, 9
"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness for they shall be satisfied."
Paul had this hunger.
"...I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish in order that I may gain Christ and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own... but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith that I might know Him, and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death; in order that I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.
Not that I have already obtained it, or have already become perfect, but I press on..."
"...He loves him who pursues righteousness."
"Open to me the gates of righteousness,
I shall enter through them,
I shall give thanks to the Lord.
This is the gate of the Lord,
The righteous will enter through it.
I shall give thanks to Thee,
For Thou hast become my salvation."
"I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith; in the future there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing."
2 Timothy 4:7, 8
"Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord?
And who may stand in His holy place?
He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
Who has not lifted up his soul to falsehood,
And has not sworn deceitfully.
He shall receive a blessing from the Lord
And righteousness from the God of his salvation.
This is the generation of those who seek Him,
Who seek Thy face..."
"...I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life..."
