|RIGHTEOUS IN THE EYES OF GOD
|And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.
|That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.
|[1:5] There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judaea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth. [1:6] And they were both righteous before God , walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.
|As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
|By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous , God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.
|II Peter 2:7-8
|[2:7] And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: [2:8] (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)
|I John 3:12
|Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous . (Abel)
