The Just shall live by his faith
The Jerk lives by his folly
The Just shall live by his faith goes back 2700 years ago to Habakkuk 2:4, then repeated twice by St. Paul: Romans 1:17 & Galatians 3:11.
The Just man is a “righteousness” man, (tzedekah) and “justice” (mishpat). He is attuned to the right thing and actually does it. “Tzedaka” is charity. Hence the Just man is a righteous charitable man.
Who is the Jerk? In America it is an annoying, stupid or foolish person.
A person can only be a Just or a Jerk.
