Thomas Boston, Works, 3:250:

God is well pleased with those who, obeying the truth, live godly and righteous lives. “He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good, and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God.” God’s word and their own conscience favour them, and the providence of God too, causing all things work together for their good. When they look without them into the word, they find God’s approbation of their way: when they look within them to their own conscience, they have its testimony in their favour; or about them in providence, they will see all for their real welfare. “Moreover by them” (God’s statutes) “is thy servant warned, and in keeping of them there is great reward.”
