Seventy weeks have been decreed
on your people and on your holy city,
to finish disobedience
and to make an end of sins,
and to make reconciliation for iniquity,
and to bring in everlasting righteousness,
and to seal up vision and prophecy,
and to anoint the most holy. Bible see other translations

“everlasting righteousness.” In this context, “righteousness” is doing what is right toward God and people. There are many people today who are not treating God or other people very well, but that will change when Christ is king. [For more on “righteousness” having the meaning of doing what is right or just (“justice”), see commentary on Matt. 5:6. For more on Christ’s future Millennial Kingdom on earth, see Appendix 3, “Christ’s Future Kingdom on Earth”].
