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.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

23:6 GOD. Not only is this an appropriate name (Jehovah Tsidkenu) for the Lord in that day when Judah and Israel will be saved and reunited, but also a beautiful name for Christ in relation to His redeemed Bride. This beautiful name assigned to God’s only begotten Son stresses that the righteousness, which entitles us to enter the presence of God, is entirely from Him. Our own “righteousnesses are as filthy rags” in God’s sight (Isaiah 64:6), but Christ “is made unto us …righteousness” (I Corinthians 1:30). He was made “to be sin for us,…that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him” (II Corinthians 5:21).
