“Righteousness” is obedience to the Laws of Yahuah. In fact, the formal definition of “righteousness” is this:
RIGHTEOUSNESS, n. ri’chusness.
1. Purity of heart and rectitude of life; conformity of heart and life to the divine law. Righteousness, as used in Scripture and theology, in which it is chiefly used, is nearly equivalent to holiness, comprehending holy principles and affections of heart, and conformity of life to the divine law. It includes all we call justice, honesty and virtue, with holy affections; in short, it is true religion.
