1 Samuel 2:10
"Those who contend with the LORD will be shattered; Against them He will thunder in the heavens, The LORD will judge the ends of the earth; And He will give strength to His king, And will exalt the horn of His anointed."
The LORD judges the peoples; Vindicate me, O LORD, according to my righteousness and my integrity that is in me.
And He will judge the world in righteousness; He will execute judgment for the peoples with equity.
Let my judgment come forth from Your presence; Let Your eyes look with equity.
Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
Let the nations be glad and sing for joy; For You will judge the peoples with uprightness And guide the nations on the earth. Selah.
