Righteousness is relational

The Righteousness of God is relational based on His character as a covenantal person. The relational context provides another dimension besides the legal one to His righteousness. His name Jehovah translated as LORD in English is inherently linked to His covenantal character.

9 But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak. 10 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister. 11 And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end: 12 That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises. Hebrews 6:9-12 (King James Version)
