    ONLY Lord Jesus fits the description of v.4. Jeremiah23:6THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS."The blessing" is singular unto him who "knew no sin".Our blessing is to know Jesus as our Lord and Savior.2Cor.2:21For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.
