What are the connotations of the words "u'Tzedakah Tih'yeh lanu"?

Ramban: It is a Chesed on the part of Hashem that, in spite of the fact that we are obligated to perform His will, He rewards us for doing so. 1

2.

Seforno and Targum Yonasan: Refer to 6:24-25:1:2. Performing the Mitzvos also provides us with merits for life in the world to come. 2

Ramban: Like a master who rewards his Eved for serving him even though the Eved is bound to do so anyway.

Targum Onkelos also translates "Tzedakah" as merits, but he does not add 'le'Olam ha'Ba'.
