NAME 14 of 16: YEHOVAH-TSIDQENUW
Who is Yehovah-Tsidqenuw and what does this name mean to us?
“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.” Jeremiah 23:6 (KJV)
“In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The LORD our righteousness.” Jeremiah 33:16 (KJV)
Yĕhovah tsidqenuw, pronounced ye•hō•vä' tsid•kā'•nü, is much more than just THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS. Let us examine the name to find out more.
This name is mentioned in only two places in the Hebrew concordance of the KJV of the Holy Bible. It is a sacred name. It is a combination of the name YEHOVAH and the Hebrew word TSIDQENUW, which is derived from the Hebrew word TSEDEQ. TSEDEQ has its roots in the Hebrew word TSADAQ and literally refers to justice, straightness, rightness, rectitude and righteousness. TSADAQ, TSEDEQ and TSIDQENUW refer to various aspects of righteousness that become absolute when YEHOVAH and TSIDQENUW are combined.
As children of God He is our righteousness because He vindicates us, justifies us and saves us. He gave us His righteousness because the righteousness that we possessed naturally was filthy. In fact, we are compared to an unclean thing and our righteousness is compared to a filthy rag.
“But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.” Isaiah 64:6 (KJV)
God is just in that He gives us straight Justice as opposed to crooked justice. He is righteous in His governance of His people; He delivers Justice in each of our individual lives; He is the epitome of rightness in speech; He is supreme in ethical righteousness, and in righteousness associated with vindication and justification in every controversy.
Yĕhovah tsidqenuw: God literally acquits and absolves us of every sin and makes us thoroughly innocent, as if sin never existed to us. All of this is by God’s grace through Christ Jesus.
