His justice is:
a/ undeviating— Job 8:3 Does God subvert judgment?
Or does the Almighty pervert justice?
Job 34:12 Surely God will never do wickedly,
Nor will the Almighty pervert justice.
b/ without respect of persons— Romans 2:11 For there is no partiality with God. Colossians 3:25 But he who does wrong will be repaid for what he has done, and there is no partiality. 1 Peter 1:17 And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear;
c/ not to be sinned against— Jeremiah 50:7 All who found them have devoured them;
And their adversaries said, ‘We have not offended,
Because they have sinned against the Lord, the habitation of justice,
The Lord, the hope of their fathers.’
d/ denied by the ungodly— Ezeckiel 33:17 “Yet the children of your people say, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair.’ But it is their way which is not fair! 18 When the righteous turns from his righteousness and commits iniquity, he shall die because of it.19 But when the wicked turns from his wickedness and does what is lawful and right, he shall live because of it. 20 Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair.’ O house of Israel, I will judge every one of you according to his own ways.”
