Proverbs 11:18; Isaiah 32:17; Hosea 10:12; Amos 6:12; Philippians 1:11

18  The wicked earns deceptive wages,

but one who xsows righteousness gets a sure reward.


17  hAnd the effect of righteousness will be peace,

and the result of righteousness, quietness and trust1 forever.


12  mSow for yourselves righteousness;

reap steadfast love;

nbreak up your fallow ground,

for it is the time to seek the Lord,

that he may come and orain righteousness upon you.


12  Do horses run on rocks?

Does one plow there1 with oxen?

uBut you have turned justice into vpoison

uand the fruit of righteousness into wormwood2


11 filled uwith the fruit of righteousness that comes vthrough Jesus Christ, wto the glory and praise of God.
