Psalm 125

The Lord is Just

One of God’s attributes is that He is just.  What does that even mean?

Just according to is

1.guided by truth, reason, justice, and fairness: We hope to bejust in our understanding of such difficult situations.
2. done or made according to principle; equitable; proper: a justreply.
3. based on right; rightful; lawful: a just claim.

Based on such justness God will reward those who are righteous and punish those who are evil.

3 The scepter of the wicked will not remain

over the land allotted to the righteous,
for then the righteous might use
their hands to do evil.

4 LORD, do good to those who are good,
to those who are upright in heart.
5 But those who turn to crooked ways
the LORD will banish with the evildoers.
