But if a man is just
And does what is lawful and right;
(A)If he has not eaten [a]on the mountains,
Nor lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel,
Nor (B)defiled his neighbor’s wife,
Nor approached (C)a woman during her impurity;
If he has not (D)oppressed anyone,
But has restored to the debtor his (E)pledge;
Has robbed no one by violence,
But has (F)given his bread to the hungry
And covered the naked with (G)clothing;
If he has not [b]exacted (H)usury
Nor taken any increase,
But has withdrawn his hand from iniquity
And (I)executed true [c]judgment between man and man;
If he has walked in My statutes
And kept My judgments faithfully—
He is just;
He shall surely (J)live!”
Says the Lord God.
