Do you rulers indeed speak justly? Do you judge uprightly among men?
No, in your heart you devise injustice, and your hands mete out violence on the earth. . . .
The righteous will be glad when they are avenged, when they bathe their feet in the blood of the wicked.
Then men will say, “Surely the righteous still are rewarded; surely there is a God who judges the earth.”
(Psalm 58, verses 1-2 and 10-11)
Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I shall not be shaken.
My salvation and my honour depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge.
Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.
(Psalm 62, verses 5-8)
