"Suppose there is a righteous man who does what is just and right.
He does not eat at the mountain1 shrines or look to the idols2 of the house of Israel. He does not defile his neighbor's wife or lie with a woman during her period.37
He does not oppress4 anyone, but returns what he took in pledge5 for a loan. He does not commit robbery6 but gives his food to the hungry7 and provides clothing for the naked.88
He does not lend at usury or take excessive interest.a9 He withholds his hand from doing wrong and judges fairly10 between man and man.
He follows my decrees11 and faithfully keeps my laws. That man is righteous;12 he will surely live,13 declares the Sovereign LORD.
