“Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in Yahweh, your God; for he gives you the former rain (margin=a teacher of Righteousness) in just measure (margin=according to Righteousness), and he causes the rain to come down for you, the former rain and the latter rain, as before.   Joel 2:23

Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap according to kindness. Break up your fallow ground; for it is time to seek Yahweh, until he comes and rains righteousness on you.  Hosea 10:12

Rain, you heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness. Let the earth open, that it may produce salvation, and let it cause righteousness to spring up with it. I, Yahweh, have created it.   Isaiah 45:8

Until the Spirit is poured on us from on high, and the wilderness becomes a fruitful field, and the fruitful field is considered a forest.  Then justice will dwell in the wilderness; and righteousness will remain in the fruitful field. The work of righteousness will be peace; and the effect of righteousness, quietness and confidence forever. My people will live in a peaceful habitation, in safe dwellings, and in quiet resting places.  Isaiah 32:15-17

“Come! Let’s return to Yahweh; for he has torn us to pieces, and he will heal us; he has injured us, and he will bind up our wounds.  After two days he will revive us. On the third day he will raise us up, and we will live before him. Let’s acknowledge Yahweh. Let’s press on to know Yahweh. As surely as the sun rises, Yahweh will appear. He will come to us like the rain, like the spring rain that waters the earth.”  Hosea 6:1-3

“Now, brothers, I know that you did this in ignorance, as did also your rulers. But the things which God announced by the mouth of all his prophets, that Christ should suffer, he thus fulfilled. “Repent therefore, and turn again, that your sins may be blotted out, so that there may come times of refreshing from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send Christ Jesus, who was ordained for you before, whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God spoke long ago by the mouth of his holy prophets. Acts 3:17-21

Ask of Yahweh rain in the spring time, Yahweh who makes storm clouds, and he gives rain showers to everyone for the plants in the field.  Zechariah 10:1

The remnant of Jacob will be among many peoples, like dew from Yahweh, like showers on the grass, that don’t wait for man, nor wait for the sons of men. Micah 5:7

I will make them and the places around my hill a blessing. I will cause the shower to come down in its season. There will be showers of blessing.  The tree of the field will yield its fruit, and the earth will yield its increase, and they will be secure in their land. Then they will know that I am Yahweh, when I have broken the bars of their yoke, and have delivered them out of the hand of those who made slaves of them.   Ezekiel 34:26,27

Give ear, you heavens, and I will speak. Let the earth hear the words of my mouth.  My doctrine will drop as the rain. My speech will condense as the dew, as the misty rain on the tender grass, as the showers on the herb.  For I will proclaim Yahweh’s name. Ascribe greatness to our God!  The ROCK, his work is perfect, for all his ways are just. A God of faithfulness who does no wrong, just and right is He.  Deuteronomy 32:1-4

Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;  And then the LORD’S wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and lest ye perish quickly from off the good land which the LORD giveth you.  Deuteronomy 11:16,17
