A note from a friend:

I read through Psalm 27 this morning, and one thing that kept hitting me, is that God protects the reputation of the righteous. I know there is a verse in Proverbs that speaks directly to that, but I cannot remember it right now. I did find this, however, “He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun.” Ps 37:6. Actually, that whole chapter goes right along with Ps 27.
