7 Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is My law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings.
8 For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool: but My righteousness shall be for ever, and My salvation from generation to generation.
Those who know righteousness not only have knowledge of it, but they understand it, and hold God’s Word in their hearts. They do not have to fear when absurd accusations are made against them, or when they are reviled by men who do not know righteousness.
Those who mock at God, and persecute the righteous, are weak compared to God’s righteousness. They are like clothing that the moth chews up, and the worm that destroys the wool. His righteousness is eternal, and will far outlast the scorn of evil men. When the unrighteous have fallen, God’s righteousness will still be there. It is impossible to overthrow His righteousness.
