This question already has an answer here:

I see a beautiful post about initials צו"צ and I am wondering: in Sfard nussach and in Ashkenaz, the verses are in different orders (but in Chassidic minhagim (perhaps d/t difference between Polish minhag and Hungarian), Gur Chassidim recite as in Ashkenaz sidur). Here is an extract of the sidur Zecher Menachem. The first order appears in the majority of sidurim Nussach Sfard, the last in all the sidurim Nussach Ashkenaz; Nussach Sepharadi is the same as nussach sfard (more exactly the contrary is right)

    1. צִדְקָתְךָ כְּהַרְרֵי אֵל, מִשְׁפָּטֶיךָ תְּהוֹם רַבָּה אָדָם וּבְהֵמָה תוֹשִׁיעַ יְהֹוָה
    2. וְצִדְקָתְךָ אֱלֹהִים עַד מָרוֹם, אֲשֶׁר עָשִׂיתָ גְדֹלוֹת. אֱלֹהִים, מִי כָמוֹךָ
    3. צִדְקָתְךָ צֶדֶק לְעוֹלָם, וְתוֹרָתךָ אֱמֶת

    1. צִדְקָתְךָ צֶדֶק לְעוֹלָם, וְתוֹרָתךָ אֱמֶת
    2. וְצִדְקָתְךָ אֱלֹהִים עַד מָרוֹם אֲשֶׁר עָשִׂיתָ גְדֹלוֹת. אֱלֹהִים, מִי כָמוֹךָ
    3. צִדְקָתְךָ כְּהַרְרֵי אֵל, מִשְׁפָּטֶיךָ תְּהוֹם רַבָּה. אָדָם וּבְהֵמָה תוֹשִׁיעַ יְהֹוָה
The above-cited post enlightened me to the fact that the order is 'צו״צ' in the both. Is there an explanation for these orders?

This question was merged with Why is “Tzidkas'cha” ordered as it is? because it is an exact duplicate of that question.
