6 We heard it in Ephrathah,
we came upon it in the fields of Jaar:
7 “Let us go to his dwelling place,
let us worship at his footstool, saying,
8 ‘Arise, Lord, and come to your resting place,
you and the ark of your might.
9 May your priests be clothed with your righteousness;
may your faithful people sing for joy.’” Psalm 132:6-9
There are at least nine references to being clothed in righteousness in the Bible: in Job 29:14 we find this verse: “I put on righteousness, and it clothed me; My justice was like a robe and a turban.”
“This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile,” Romans 3:22
It’s important to remind ourselves that our own righteousness is like filthy rags. Isaiah 64:6
Apart from Christ we really are a helpless people.
In that state, we prance about thinking we’re something, but the storms of life come and we turn to mush.
I’ll let Joni Earackson Tada explain it in a four minute audio clip:
