“…Quicken me according to thy word; …give me understanding according to thy word [and] …deliver me according to thy word. Your testimonies… are righteous and very faithful. My tongue shall speak of thy word; …my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness…. …All thy commandments are truth; …all thy commandments are righteousness” (Pss 119:154, 169-170, 138, NKJV, 151; Pss 35:28 & 119:172); and “…the righteous Lord [loves] righteousness… and judgment” (Pss 11:7; 51:19; 33:5). “…Who shall abide in [His] tabernacle? Who shall dwell in [His] holy hill? [S/he that] walks uprightly and works righteousness…” (Pss 15:1-2). “Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness…” (Pss 5:8); “…in the paths of righteousness” (Pss 23:3, NKJV; Prov 8:20); “and it shall be our righteousness, if we… do all these commandments….” (Deut 6:25). “[God calls] …in righteousness…” (Isa 42:6), [so] I will… ascribe righteousness to my Maker” (Job 36:3). “I put on righteousness…” (Job 29:14; Isa 11:5); and God says: “I have raised him up in righteousness, …I will direct ALL His way…” (Isa 45:13). “[And] in the way of righteousness is life…” (Prov 12:28 & 11:19). “Righteousness guards him whose way is blameless…” (Prov 13:6, NKJV). “Offer the sacrifices of righteousness…” (Pss 4:5 & Isa 33:5).
