“For the Lord is righteous, He loves righteousness; His countenance beholds the upright” Psalm 11:7.
In most of the passages where the word “righteousness” is used in the Old Testament, it refers to the right actions of an individual in his relationship with God. In the New Testament generally, it means the same: conformity to the Divine will but with the thought of a deepened and more spiritual relationship.
