hard cover page 45

The Lord is righteous. He loves righteousness.
—Psalms 11:7

Righteousness and justice are the foundations of his throne.
—Psalms 97:2

The king’s strength loveth justice . . .
—Psalms 99:4

That I am the Lord who exercises mercy, justice, and righteousness in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord.
—Jeremiah 9:23

But let justice well up as waters and righteousness as a mighty stream.
—Amos 5:24

The Eternal who is righteous, He will not do unrighteousness.
—Zephaniah 3:5

Indeed, the moral core of the Divine is not challenged by any but peripheral elements in Jewish and Christian tradition. The interrelated general philosophical question is whether the Divine morality roughly parallels mortal conceptions of morality.176
