Righteousness:

Posted in Uncategorized by Stephen Stonestreet on September 30, 2008

The Hebrew word for righteousness is tseh’-dek, tzedek—righteous, integrity, equity, justice, straightness. The root of tseh’-dek is tsaw-dak’—upright, just, straight, innocent, true, sincere. It is best understood as the product of upright, moral action in accordance with some form of divine plan.

In one instance the word means being right; in another it is used to mean doing right; in still another case it means putting right.
