That 'righteousness' was relational was being taught by J N Darby and W Kelly as far back as the 1850's. They did not mean by it simply covenant faithfulness however. Rather for sentient creatures righteousness was living consistently with the relationships of life into which God placed them. God, as utterly sovereign, is not bound by relationships unless he places himself under obligation. Righteousness in God is his consistency with all he is in himself.

Righteousness is not properly an attribute but an action; righteouness is a verdict in relation to an activity; he that does right is righteous.
