Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Adjective Strong's Number: g1342 Greek: dikaios

Righteous, Righteously:

signifies "just," without prejudice or partiality, e.g., of the judgment of God, 2Th 1:5, 6; of His judgments, Rev 16:7; 19:2; of His character as Judge, 2Ti 4:8; Rev 16:5; of His ways and doings, Rev 15:3. See further under JUST, A, No. 1, RIGHT, B, No. 1.

In the following the RV substitues "righteous" for the AV "just;" Mat 1:19; 13:49; 27:19,24; Mar 6:20; Luk 2:25; 15:7; 20:20; 23:50; Jhn 5:30; Act 3:14; 7:52; 10:22; 22:14; Rom 1:17; 7:12; Gal 3:11; Hbr 10:38; Jam 5:6; 1Pe 3:18; 2Pe 2:7; 1Jo 1:9; Rev 15:3.

B-1 Adverb Strong's Number: g1342 Greek: dikaios

Righteous, Righteously:

is translated "righteously" in 1Cr 15:34, RV, "(awake up) righteously," AV, "(awake to) righteousness;" 1Th 2:10, RV (AV, "justly"); Tts 2:12; 1Pe 2:23.


(1) In Rev 22:11 the best texts have dikaiosune, "righteousness," with poieo, "to do," RV, "let him do righteousness;" the AV follows those which have the Passive Voice of dikaioo and renders it "let him be righteous," lit., "let him be made righteous."

(2) Dikaiokrisia, "righteous judgement" (dikaios, and krisis), occurs in Rom 2:5.


The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
