They confronted me in the day of my calamity, but the LORD was my support. He brought me out into a broad place; He rescued me, because He delighted in me. The LORD dealt with me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands He rewarded me. For I have kept the ways of the LORD, and have not wickedly departed from my God. For all His rules were before me, and His statutes I did not put away from me. I was blameless before Him, and I kept myself from my guilt.
So the LORD has rewarded me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in His sight.
Yes, LORD, You have brought me into a broad and pleasant place, for You love me, but not because of my righteousness or the cleanness of my hands. The righteousness is the righteousness of the Lamb of God, the One chosen before the creation; the cleanness of His hands provides my entry into that broad and pleasant place. His obedience and blamelessness brought me into the family of the most High.
