Begin study:


Righteousness is the sinless perfection of God, of which only God possesses. And as to those who are called the righteous, it is His righteousness that is imputed into the believer that, in part, sets them apart from all who reject God.

Righteousness is the perfect decency and honesty and integrity and morality and virtue and so forth, all absent of tarnish or taint or filth of sin and evil.

Righteousness is the attribute (one of several) that sets God apart from all living beings.

Gods righteousness is the one attribute that man cannot possess, because man is incapable of maintaining it in a perfect status.

With the sin nature, man (and angel) will find a way to compromise the standards of righteousness, and allow less than perfection (sin) to become a part of its essence. And that diminishes that which is perfect into that which is imperfect. Once imperfections enter into a thing, then it declines until it is thoroughly destroyed.

When man invents religion (Christianity is not a religion), then man tries to bring into the spiritual realm that which he lusts after. And the lusts of the heart are all tainted and bent on destruction sooner or later.

Only a perfect standard, immovable and immutable, can be applied legitimately and fairly against the behaviors of creatures. God is that one and only perfect being that possesses righteousness, and only God can apply justice fairly as called for by His righteousness.

And that is the focus of this psalm.

God judges fairly and correctly those who comply with His truth, versus those who disregard the principles of His truth.

And because of this, then God is called by His personal name, Jehovah, namely the second person of the Trinity, and praise is declared to Him, who is perfect and immutable and eternal.

Most high, means the highest possible, and above Him there is none higher.

The Savior saves, and to Him belongs judgment, and beyond His judgment there is no further appeal. Jesus Christ is the last stop.



End of study





Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
