Jer 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 L-RD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

Jer 51:10 - The L-RD hath brought forth our righteousness: come, and let us declare in Zion the work of the L-RD our G-d.

Ps 145:7 - They shall abundantly utter the memory of thy great goodness, and shall sing of thy righteousness.

Ps 98:2 - The L-RD hath made known his salvation: His righteousness hath he openly showed in the sight of the heathen.

But now apart from the Law G-d's Righteousness is revealed, as is witnessed to by the Law and the Prophets, namely, G-d's righteousness.

Who revealed G-d's righteousness? And how can it be ours?

Ps 4:1 - Hear me when I call, O G-d of MY righteousness: thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear my prayer.]

Ps 71:1-3 - In thee, O L-RD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion. Deliver me in THY righteousness, and cause me to escape: incline thine ear unto me, and save me. Be thou my strong habitation, whereunto I may continually resort: thou hast given commandment to save me; for thou art my rock and my fortress.

Psalms 18:2 - The L-RD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my G-d, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

Psalms 18:31-32 - For who is G-d save the L-RD? or who is a rock save our G-d? It is G-d that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.

Ps 89:15-16 - Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O L-RD, in the light of thy countenance.

That Rock is Yeshua

Rom 3:25-26 - Whom G-d hath set forth to be a propitiation (satisfaction) through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of G-d; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus (Yeshua').

Ps 85:13 - Righteousness shall go before him; and shall set us in the way of his steps.

Ps 86:1 Bow down thine ear, O L-RD, hear me: for I am poor and needy.

His righteousness is ours for the taking. His righteousness is accredited to us when we trust in His blood for our sin.

For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul. (Lev 17:11)

Moses wrote about Him.

Deut 18:17-18 - And the L-RD said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken. I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.

And the word a short time later states what seems to be a contradiction.

Deut 34:10 - And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the L-RD knew face to face,

Why? How can this be?

The prophet that Moses was speaking of one like unto him was G-d himself -in the flesh -Yeshua. He could not know himself face to face.

Acts 3:22-26 - For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the L-rd your G-d raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people. Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days. Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant, which G-d made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed. Unto you first G-d, having raised up his Son Jesus (Yeshua), sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.

Moses also states:

Deut 32:1-4 - Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass: Because I will publish the name of the L-RD: ascribe ye greatness unto our G-d. He is the Rock, His work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a G-d of truth and without iniquity, just and right is He.

Deut 32:18 - Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten G-d that formed thee.

The Song of Moses can be found in Deuteronomy chapter 32

Deut 32:44 - And Moses came and spake all the words of this song in the ears of the people, he, and Hoshea the son of Nun. And Moses made an end of speaking all these words to all Israel:

Deut 32:46 - And (Moses) he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day,

Deut 30:6 - And the L-RD thy G-d will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the L-RD thy G-d with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.

Deut 31:21 - And it shall come to pass, when many evils and troubles are befallen them, that this song shall testify against them as a witness; for it shall not be forgotten out of the mouths of their seed:

Acts 13:38-39 - Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins: And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.

Rom 10:19 - But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith, I will provoke you to jealousy by them that are no people, and by a foolish nation I will anger you.

Rom 11:2-6 - G-d hath not cast away his people, which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to G-d against Israel, saying, L-rd, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life. But what saith the answer of G-d unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal. Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.

Heb 3:2-9 - Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house. For this man(Yeshua) was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house. For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is G-d. And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after; But Yeshua as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end. Wherefore (as the Holy Spirit says, Today if ye will hear his voice, Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:

Moses said,

Deut 30:6 - And the L-RD thy G-d will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the L-RD thy G-d with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.


Rom 10:8-13 - But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the L-rd Jesus (Yeshua), and shalt believe in thine heart that G-d hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, whosoever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed.

The Tenach talks of righteousness not of our own but of G-d's righteousness or Yeshua's righteousness that is accredited to us. So Yeshua is our rock and corner stone, of our salvation, because it is His righteousness that save us, not ours, nor the law.

Jeremiah also spoke of this:

Jer 32:38-40 - And they shall be my people, and I will be their G-d: And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear me for ever, for the good of them, and of their children after them: And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me.

Abraham knew this and his faith is an example in the Tenach

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report. Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of G-d, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

Heb 11:6 - But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to G-d must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son,

Heb. 11:17 - Jesus (Yeshua) is the focus of the whole Bible and his life is portrayed in the lives of many of the people in the Bible. All the account of the lives of different people can point us to Yeshua our righteousness.

Moses was like Yeshua,

Deut 18:15 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto

(See Menorah,"Moses",etc.) Even the law points to Yeshua because Yeshua is the living Torah and is the only one whom fulfilled the law.

See category "The law" on our Menorah.

Rom 4:1-5:2 - What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found? For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before G-d. For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed G-d, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the unG-dly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom G-d imputeth righteousness without works, Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the L-rd will not impute sin. Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness. How was it then reckoned? when he was in circumcision, or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision. And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also: And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which he had being yet uncircumcised. For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect: Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression. Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all, (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even G-d, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were. Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations; according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be. And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara's womb: He staggered not at the promise of G-d through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to G-d; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness. Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him; But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus (Yeshua) our L-rd from the dead; Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification. Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with G-d through our L-rd Jesus Christ. (Yeshua the Mashiach) By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of G-d.

Ephesians 2:8-9 - For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of G-d: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Romans 3:28-31 - Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. Is he the G-d of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also: Seeing it is one G-d, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith. Do we then make void the law through faith? G-d forbid: yea, we establish the law.

Matt 21:42 - Jesus (Yeshua) saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the L-rd's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes?

1 Peter 2:6-8 - Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Zion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed. So we declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. (Yeshua)

Psalm 89:16 - In thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in thy righteousness shall they be exalted.

Isa 41:10 - 0 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy G-d: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Isa 53:11 - He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for He shall bear their iniquities.
