But because of the false brothers brought in quietly, who sneaked in to spy upon our freedom which we have in union with Christ, that they might completely enslave us. Galatians 2:4 1
Look! My servant whom I chose, my beloved, whom my soul approved! I will put my spirit upon her, and what justice is, she will make clear to the nations. No bruised reed will she crush, and no smouldering flaxen wick will she extinguish, until she sends out justice with success.”
Really, will you invalidate my justice? Will you pronounce me wicked in order that you may be in the right? Job 40:8
And, on the other hand, I myself have become full of power, with the spirit of God, and of justice and mightiness, in order to tell to Jacob his revolt and to Israel his sin. Hear, please, this, you head ones of the house of Jacob and you commanders of the house of Israel, the ones detesting justice and the ones who make even everything that is straight crooked; building Zion with acts of bloodshed and Jerusalem with unrighteousness.
Her own head ones judge merely for a bribe, and her own priests instruct just for a price, and her own prophets practice divination simply for money; yet upon God they keep supporting themselves, saying: “Is not God in the midst of us? There will come upon us no calamity.” Micah 3:6
And the truth proves to be missing, and anyone turning away from badness is being despoiled. And God got to see, and it was bad in his eyes that there was no justice. Isaiah 59:15
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because you give the tenth of the mint and the dill and the cumin, but you have disregarded the weightier matters of the Law, namely, justice and mercy and faithfulness. These things it was binding to do, yet not to disregard the other things.
Hear the word of God, O sons of Israel, for Jehovah has a legal case with the inhabitants of the land, for there is no truth nor loving-kindness nor knowledge of God in the land. Hosea 4:1
Set me free and deliver me from the hand of the foreigners, whose mouth has spoken what is untrue And whose right hand is a right hand of falsehood—Psalms 144:11
And God must become judge, and he must judge between me and you, and he will see and he will conduct the legal case for me and judge me to free me from your hand—1 Samuel 24:15
And you yourself are to speak to all the ones wise with a heart that I have filled with the Spirit of Wisdom, and they must make Aaron’s garments for sanctifying him, that he may act as priest to me. Exodus 28:3
Daniel was answering and saying: “Let the name of God become blessed from time indefinite even to time indefinite, for wisdom and mightiness – for they belong to him. And he is changing times and seasons, removing kings and setting up kings, giving wisdom to the wise ones and knowledge to those knowing discernment.
Now we speak wisdom among those who are mature, but not the wisdom of this system of things nor that of the rulers of this system of things, who are to come to nothing. But we speak God’s wisdom in a sacred secret, the hidden wisdom, which God foreordained before the systems of things for our glory.
