Abstract When urging God to act, the Old Testament psalms of lamenta-tion often appeal to divine qualities. Among these qualities is the righteous-ness of God. This paper will accentuate the active, salvific, theocentric char-acter of this righteousness, opposed to a reactive, distributive view, well known from several interpreters.
