Names of God – YHWH Tsidkenu


Word: YHWH Tsidkenu

Translated: the LORD our righteousness

Meaning: the God who is the one and only source of true righteousness. It is not our effort that results in our righteousness (indeed He tells us that we have none to offer – Isaiah 64:6 ‘All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags; we all shrivel up like a leaf, and like the wind our sins sweep us away’). Instead, it is His work through His Son on the cross substituting Himself in our place to bear a punishment we deserve (but cannot pay) in order to receive His declaration of righteousness that we do not deserve but receive by faith!

NAU Jeremiah 23:6 “In His days Judah will be saved, And Israel will dwell securely; And this is His name by which He will be called, ‘The LORD our righteousness.’

NIV Jeremiah 23:6 In his days Judah will be saved and Israel will live in safety. This is the name by which he will be called: The LORD Our Righteousness.

KJV Jeremiah 23:6 In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
