The work of righteousness will be peace,
and the effect of righteousness
will be quietness and confidence forever. Bible

“the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence forever.” In this context, “righteousness” is doing what is right toward God and people, and in effect is “justice.” There is no justice on earth now, but there will be in Christ’s Millennial Kingdom on earth. Christ will reign in righteousness, doing the right and just thing, and the effect of that will be peace, quietness, and confidence. [For more on “righteousness” having the meaning of doing what is right or just (“justice”), see commentary on Matt. 5:6].
