Thus says the Lord: Keep justice, do and use righteousness (conformity to the will of God which brings salvation), for My salvation is soon to come and My righteousness (My rightness and justice) to be revealed.
This is what the Lord says: “·Give justice to all people [Promote justice], and ·do what is right [practice righteousness], because my salvation ·will come to you soon [draws near]. Soon ·everyone will know that I do what is right [my righteousness will be revealed].
1 An exhortation to judgment and justice. 10 Against shepherds that devour their flock. Thus saith the Lord, Keep judgment and do justice, for my salvation is at hand to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.
God’s Message: “Guard my common good: Do what’s right and do it in the right way, For salvation is just around the corner, my setting-things-right is about to go into action. How blessed are you who enter into these things, you men and women who embrace them, Who keep Sabbath and don’t defile it, who watch your step and don’t do anything evil! Make sure no outsider who now follows God ever has occasion to say, ‘God put me in second-class. I don’t really belong.’ And make sure no physically mutilated person is ever made to think, ‘I’m damaged goods. I don’t really belong.’”
The Lord saith these things, Keep ye doom, and do ye rightfulness, for why mine health is nigh, that it come, and my rightfulness, that it be showed. (The Lord saith these things, Do ye justly, and do ye righteously, for my deliverance, or my salvation, is near, so that it shall come, and my righteousness, so that it shall be shown.)
