GEN 39:21 the LORD was with him; he showed him kindness and granted him favor in the eyes of the prison warden. 22 So the warden put Joseph in charge of all those held in the prison, and he was made responsible for all that was done there. 23 The warden paid no attention to anything under Joseph's care, because the LORD was with Joseph and gave him success in whatever he did. JOS 6:25 But Joshua spared Rahab the prostitute, with her family and all who belonged to her, because she hid the men Joshua had sent as spies to Jericho--and she lives among the Israelites to this day.

24 the spies saw a man coming out of the city and they said to him, "Show us how to get into the city and we will see that you are treated well." 25 So he showed them, and they put the city to the sword but spared the man and his whole family. 26 He then went to the land of the Hittites, where he built a city and called it Luz, which is its name to this day. 1SA 24:10 This day you have seen with your own eyes how the LORD delivered you into my hands in the cave. Some urged me to kill you, but I spared you; I said, 'I will not lift my hand against my master, because he is the LORD'S anointed.' 11 See, my father, look at this piece of your robe in my hand! I cut off the corner of your robe but did not kill you. Now understand and recognize that I am not guilty of wrongdoing or rebellion. I have not wronged you, but you are hunting me down to take my life. 12 May the LORD judge between you and me. And may the LORD avenge the wrongs you have done to me, but my hand will not touch you. 13 As the old saying goes, 'From evildoers come evil deeds,' so my hand will not touch you. 17 "You are more righteous than I," he said. "You have treated me well, but I have treated you badly. 2SA 22:26 "To the faithful you show yourself faithful, to the blameless you show yourself blameless, PSA 18:25 To the faithful you show yourself faithful, to the blameless you show yourself blameless, 37:25 I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous

4 Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. because the LORD has a charge to bring against you who live in the land: "There is no faithfulness. but a cruel man brings trouble on himself. 23:23 "Woe to you. 21:21 He who pursues righteousness and love finds life.
