Spiritual and moral

How blessed and graciously favored is he whose help is the God of Jacob (Israel),
Whose hope is in the Lord his God, 
Who made heaven and earth,
The sea, and all that is in them,
Who keeps truth and is faithful forever, 
Who executes justice for the oppressed,
Who gives food to the hungry.
The Lord sets free the prisoners. 

The Lord opens the eyes of the blind;
The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down;
The Lord loves the [a]righteous [the upright in heart]. 
The Lord protects the strangers;
He supports the fatherless and the widow;
But He makes crooked the way of the wicked. 
The Lord shall reign forever,
Your God, O Zion, to all generations.
Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!) – Psalm 146:5-10

The Lord gives sight to the blind both physically and spiritually.

“I will lead the blind by a way they do not know;
I will guide them in paths that they do not know.
I will make darkness into light before them
And rugged places into plains.
These things I will do [for them],
And I will not leave them abandoned or undone.” – Isaiah 42:16

See a connection with the Messianic text of Isaiah 61:1-3, as well as the words of Jesus in Luke 4:18-19 and 7:22-23?

Webster’s defines “righteous” as “acting in a just, upright manner, doing what is right.” The word’s drawn from “right-wise”. The root “right” is one of those words with scores of meanings, but in our context it means that which is straight from a spiritual and moral standpoint.
