Jehovah is a God of justice. He is a God of love, but he is also a God of justice. And he can read hearts. And he knows everyone inside out. When he
decides to show mercy to those whom he chooses and give justice to those whom he chooses it will be the best for everyone.
Everything he hates it is because it is bad, bad for you, and bad for me.
(Exodus 34:6, 7) . . .Jehovah was passing before him and declaring: “Jehovah, Jehovah, a God merciful and compassionate, slow to anger and
abundant in loyal love and truth, 7 showing loyal love to thousands, pardoning error and transgression and sin, but he will by no means leave the
guilty unpunished, bringing punishment for the error of fathers upon sons and upon grandsons, upon the third generation and upon the fourth
(Habakkuk 1:2-4) . . .How long, O Jehovah, must I cry for help, but you do not hear? How long must I ask for help from violence, but you do not
intervene? 3 Why do you make me witness wrongdoing? And why do you tolerate oppression? Why are destruction and violence before me? And why do
quarreling and conflict abound? 4 So law is paralyzed, And justice is never carried out. For the wicked surround the righteous; That is why
justice is perverted.
(Isaiah 10:1-4) . . .Woe to those who enact harmful regulations, Who constantly draft oppressive decrees, 2 To deny the legal claim of the
poor, To deprive the lowly among my people of justice, Making widows their spoil And fatherless children their plunder! 3 What will you do on the
day of reckoning, When destruction comes from afar? To whom will you flee for assistance, And where will you leave your wealth? 4 Nothing remains
except to crouch among the prisoners Or to fall among the slain. In view of all this, his anger has not turned back, But his hand is still stretched
out to strike.
(Isaiah 30:18) But Jehovah is waiting patiently to show you favor, And he will rise up to show you mercy. For Jehovah is a God of justice. Happy
are all those keeping in expectation of him.
(Ezekiel 18:32) “‘I do not take any pleasure in the death of anyone,’ declares the Sovereign Lord Jehovah. ‘So turn back and live.’”
(Ezekiel 38:23) . . .And I will certainly magnify myself and sanctify myself and make myself known before the eyes of many nations; and they will
have to know that I am Jehovah.’
