The Vindication of the Righteous

Consistent in Proverbs is this continuous theme of the vindication of the righteous in God’s eschatological promise. Proverbs 11:23 says that the “desire of the righteous ends only in good.” Our desires need to comport with God’s desires. His hesed needs to be reflected in our actions toward others. In this sense our desires are shaped by God himself and its ultimate triumph is its vindication. Creation repeats itself. Our vindication is in God calling our desires good at the end of history.
