A throne will be established in covenant faithfulness.
And one will sit on it in faithfulness
in the tent of David;
one who judges and seeks justice,
and swift to do what is right. Bible

“one will sit on it in faithfulness.” The “one” is the Messiah, Jesus Christ.

“what is right.” The Hebrew is “righteousness,” which in this context is “what is right,” or as some English versions have, “justice.” [For more on “righteousness” referring to what is right or to “justice,” see commentary on Matthew 5:6].
