2 Chronicles 12:6; Psalm 129:4; Psalm 145:17; Lamentations 1:18; Daniel 9:14

Then the princes of iIsrael and the king humbled themselves and said, jThe Lord is righteous.

The Lord is righteous;

he has cut vthe cords of the wicked.

17  The Lord is frighteous in all his ways

and gkind in all his works.

18  wThe Lord is in the right,

xfor I have rebelled against his word;

but hear, all you peoples,

and see my suffering;

ymy young women and my young men

have gone into captivity.

14 dTherefore the Lord has kept ready the calamity and has brought it upon us, efor the Lord our God is righteous in all the works that he has done, and fwe have not obeyed his voice.
