Proverbs 15:9-10 The way of the wrong one is an abomination to YAHUAH, but He loves him who pursues righteousness. (10) Discipline is grievous to him who forsakes the way; he who hates reproof dies.
Proverbs 21:20-21 Desirable treasure and oil are in the dwelling of the wise, but a foolish man swallows it up. (21) He who pursues righteousness and kindness finds life, righteousness and esteem.
Yashaw’yahu 51:1-8 “Listen to Me, you who pursue righteousness, seeking YAHUAH: Look to the rock you were hewn from, and to the hole of the pit you were dug from. (2) “Look to Aburaham your father, and to Shurah who bore you. For he was alone when I called him, and I blessed him and increased him. (3) “For YAHUAH shall comfort Tsyun, He shall comfort all her waste places. For He makes her wilderness like Awdan, and her desert like the garden of YAHUAH. Joy and gladness are found in it, thanksgiving and the voice of song. (4) “Listen to Me, My people, and give ear to Me, O My nation, for the Turah goes forth from Me, and My right-ruling I set as a light to peoples. (5) “My righteousness is near, My deliverance shall go forth, and My arms judge peoples. Coastlands wait upon Me, and for My arm they wait expectantly. (6) “Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look on the earth beneath, for the heavens shall vanish like smoke, and the earth wear out like a garment, and those who dwell in it die as gnats. But My deliverance is forever, and My righteousness is not broken. (7) “Listen to Me, you who know righteousness, a people in whose heart is My Turah: do not fear the reproach of men, nor be afraid of their revilings. (8) “For a moth eats them like a garment, and a worm eats them like wool; but My righteousness is forever, and My deliverance to all generations.”
1 Timothy 6:8-11 When we have food and covering, we shall be satisfied with these. (9) But those wishing to be rich fall into trial and a snare, and into many foolish and injurious lusts which plunge men in ruin and destruction. (10) For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some, by longing for it, have strayed from the belief, and pierced themselves through with many pains. (11) But you, O man of Aluahim, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, reverence, belief, love, endurance, meekness.
2 Timothy 2:19-22 However, the solid foundation of Aluahim stands firm, having this seal, “YAHUAH knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the Name of Mashyach turn away from unrighteousness.” (20) But in a large house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some unto value and some unto no value. (21) If, then, anyone cleanses himself from these matters, he shall be a vessel unto value, having been set apart, of good use to the Master, having been prepared for every good work. (22) And flee from the lusts of youth, but pursue righteousness, belief, love, peace with those calling on the Master out of a clean heart.
