I will betroth you to me forever.
Yes, I will betroth you to me in righteousness,
in justice, in covenant faithfulness, and in compassion. Bible other translations

“righteousness.” In this context, “righteousness” is doing what is right to God and others (see commentary on Matt. 5:6). God is promising that when He brings Israel back to Himeslf, he will treat her in a just and godly way.
