GE 7:1 Noah was righteous.
JB 1:1,8, JB 2:3 Job was righteous.
LK 1:6 Zechariah and Elizabeth were righteous.
JA 5:16 Some men are righteous, (which makes their prayers effective).
1JN 3:6-9 Christians become righteous (or else they are not really Christians).
RO 3:10, 3:23, 1JN 1:8-10 No one was or is righteous.
Let us simply add a couple more Scripture references to this:
Jesus Christ is THE righteous; meaning that He is the epitome of righteousness.
“My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.” (1Jn 2:1,2) KJV
Speaking of Christ, the apostle said:
“he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. “ (2Cor 5.21) KJV
The reality is that none of us are righteous. God however, sent His Divine Son into the world in human flesh. Jesus, the Son of God, (The Righteous) lived the perfect life required by God, died for our sins, and rose from the dead that we might be made righteous in Him. Not simply righteous, however, but the righteousness of God.
There is great consistency in the Scriptures.
