Pr 21:15

21:15 Maintaining true order (justice) establishes the well-being of those who live according to it. Those who transgress it will be undone. The wise discern this divine, providential order which, though marred by sin, is to some degree maintained in the world. God preserves such an order, and it is our task to perceive His order and live in harmony with it. At its center are God’s Word and our faithful obedience to it. Such obedience is what is meant by “the fear of the Lord.”
