Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is revealed at his coming.
Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; therefore he will rise up to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!
When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers.
For we know him who said, “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” and again, “The Lord will judge his people.”
But let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!
