'Uprightness' in the Bible
Not for thy righteousness, or for the uprightness of thine heart, dost thou go to possess their land: but for the wickedness of these nations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee, and that he may perform the word which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness;
He that walketh in his uprightness feareth the LORD: but he that is perverse in his ways despiseth him.
