'''Righteousness''' (also called rectitude) is an important theological [[concept]] in [[monotheism]]. It is an [[attribute]] that implies that a [[person's]] [[actions]] are justified, and can have the connotation that the person has been "judged" or "reckoned" as leading a life that is [[Pleasure|pleasing]] to [[God]]. Righteousness is also used as an attribute for God. [http://nordan.daynal.org/wiki/index.php?title=Book_of_Psalms#Psalm_2 Psalm 2] speaks of one being shielded by God and receiving favor because of righteousness.

The [[English]] word righteous was coined by [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Tyndale William Tyndale], who remodelled the [[word]] after an earlier word rihtwis, which would have yielded [http://nordan.daynal.org/wiki/index.php?title=English#1500-present.09THE_MODERN_ENGLISH_PERIOD Modern English] rightwise or rightways. He used it to [[translate]] the Hebrew root צדקים (TzDYQ), tzedek (see [[Melchizedek|Melchi'''zedek''']]), which appears more than five hundred times in the [[Hebrew Bible]], and the [[Greek]] [[word]] δικαιος (dikaios), which appears more than two hundred times in the [[Christian Bible|New Testament]].
