“The path of the righteous is straight; you pave an undeviating course for the upright. In the very passage of your ordinances we anticipate you, O Jehovah; the soul’s desire is to contemplate your name.

“Then shall it happen in the earth among the nations as when an olive tree is beaten, or as grapes are gleaned when the vintage is ended. Then will these lift up their voice and shout for joy, and [those] from across the sea exult at Jehovah’s ingenuity. Because of it they will give glory to Jehovah in the regions of sunrise, and in the isles of the sea to the name of Jehovah, the God of Israel. From a sector of the earth we hear singing: Glorious are the righteous!” (Isaiah 24:13–16)

“Then shall a Spirit from on high be poured out on us; the desert shall become productive land and lands now productive be reckoned as brushwood. So shall justice inhabit the desert, and righteousness abide in the farmland. And the effect of justice shall be peace, and the result of righteousness an assured calm forever. My people shall dwell in peaceful settlements, in safe neighborhoods, in comfortable dwellings. Blessed are you, who shall then sow by all waters, letting oxen and asses range free.” (Isaiah 32:15–20)

“Our city is strong; salvation he has set up as walls and barricades! Open the gates to let in the nation righteous because it keeps faith. Those whose minds are steadfast, [O Jehovah,] you preserve in perfect peace, for in you they are secure.” (Isaiah 26:1–3)

“All your children shall be taught by Jehovah, and great shall be the peace of your posterity. You shall be firmly established through righteousness; you will be far from oppression and have no cause to fear, far from ruin, for it shall not approach you.” (Isaiah 54:13–14)

“I rejoice exceedingly in Jehovah; my soul delights in my God. For he clothes me in garments of salvation, he arrays me in a robe of righteousness—like a bridegroom dressed in priestly attire, or a bride adorned with her jewels.” (Isaiah 61:10)

“The nations shall behold your righteousness and all their rulers your glory; you shall be called by a new name conferred by the mouth of Jehovah. Then shall you be a crown of glory in the hand of Jehovah, a royal diadem in the palm of your God.” (Isaiah 62:2–3)
