Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap according to kindness. Break up your fallow ground; for it is time to seek Yahweh, until he comes and rains righteousness on you.
“in righteousness.” In this context, “righteousness” is doing what is right to God and others (see commentary on Matt. 5:6). God is telling the people to live in a just and godly way towards God and others.
