“For I, the Lord, love justice;(A)
    I hate robbery and wrongdoing.
In my faithfulness I will reward my people
    and make an everlasting covenant(B) with them.
Their descendants(C) will be known among the nations
    and their offspring among the peoples.
All who see them will acknowledge
    that they are a people the Lord has blessed.”(D)

10 I delight greatly in the Lord;
    my soul rejoices(E) in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation
    and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,(F)
as a bridegroom adorns his head(G) like a priest,
    and as a bride(H) adorns herself with her jewels.
11 For as the soil makes the sprout come up
    and a garden(I) causes seeds to grow,
so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness(J)
    and praise spring up before all nations.
