Job held onto Jesus.  He, Christ, was Job’s righteousness as Job put on the “new self”.  Footnotes in Job 29:14 point to Ephesians 4:24.  Footnotes in Job 27:5 point to Ephesians 6:14 and the breastplate of righteousness believers own as part of their armor.  This is the righteousness Job refused to deny.
