2 Their descendants shall be mighty in the land, generation upright and blessed.
3 Wealth and riches shall be in their homes; their prosperity shall endure forever.
4 They shine through the darkness, a light for the upright; they are gracious, merciful, and just.
5 All goes well for those gracious in lending, who conduct their affairs with justice.
6 They shall never be shaken; the just shall be remembered forever.
2 “There was a judge in a certain town who neither feared God nor respected any human being.
3 And a widow in that town used to come to him and say, ‘Render a just decision for me against my adversary.’
4 For a long time the judge was unwilling, but eventually he thought, ‘While it is true that I neither fear God nor respect any human being,
5 because this widow keeps bothering me I shall deliver a just decision for her lest she finally come and strike me.'”
6 The Lord said, “Pay attention to what the dishonest judge says.
7 Will not God then secure the rights of his chosen ones who call out to him day and night? Will he be slow to answer them?
8 I tell you, he will see to it that justice is done for them speedily. But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?”
