God is Equitable.

"Life isn't fair." I've heard this saying all my life. But guess what? God is fair. He judges justly. He discerns right and wrong objectively. He's also gracious and merciful. We don't always get what we deserve. These attributes of God are somewhat contradictory, to be sure, but also part of God's infinite character that is beyond our understanding.

God is Equitable.

"Characterized by equity or fairness; just and right; fair; reasonable" (, n. d.)

Psalm 9:8
He rules the world in righteousness and judges the peoples with equity.

Psalm 67:4
May the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you rule the peoples with equity and guide the nations of the earth.

Psalm 75:2
You say, “I choose the appointed time; it is I who judge with equity."

Psalm 96:10
Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns.” The world is firmly established, it cannot be moved; he will judge the peoples with equity.

Psalm 98:9

Let them sing before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples with equity.

Psalm 99:4
The King is mighty, he loves justice— you have established equity; in Jacob you have done what is just and right.
