Psalm 1: 1- 6, Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly,1 nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2, But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3, And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither;2 and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
4, ¶ The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
5, Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6, For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

And Psalm 5:1-12, 1, To the chief Musician upon Nehiloth, A Psalm of David. Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.
2, Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.
3, My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
4, For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.
5, The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
6, Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
7, ¶ But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.
8, Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.
9, For there is no faithfulness in their mouth;6 their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.
10, Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee.
11, But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
12, For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass1 him as with a shield.


Galatians 4: 16, Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?

That was perfect.

What facets of "righteous" do you require to accommodate your wonder?

There are no facets, variables to righteousness because it is a gift of God.
Rom.5:17; For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.
No one in Christ has more righteousness than any other in Christ.
We cannot grow in righteousness because it is a gift.

2 Cor. 5:17-21;
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a NEW creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new.

For He has made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Christ.

OK then.
The righteous are in Christ.
The unrighteous are not in Christ.
Not one single sinner is in Christ.

I know of a preacher who was banned from entering a country to preach because of his stand against homosexuality. A drought started in that country almost immediately afterwards and continues to this day.

Righteousness and righteous means, right standing with God.
It is not some special attainment for some Holy person to achieve.
Every single child of God is as righteous as the Lord Jesus Christ.

I agree, and will add that both came from the same seed.

And he (Abraham) believed the LORD, and he counted it to him as righteousness.

that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.
