And even when you saw this happening , you refused {NEQ} to believe him and repent of your sins .
Luke.1:75 75ἐν ὁσιότητι καὶ δικαιοσύνῃ ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ πάσαις ταῖς ἡμέραις ἡμῶν. 75 in holiness and righteousness {NEQ} {RPT} for as long as we live .

This is accomplished from start to finish by faith {RPT} . As the Scriptures say , {NEQ} It is through faith that a righteous person has life .  * 
Rom.3:5 5εἰ δέ, ἀδικία ἡμῶν θεοῦ δικαιοσύνην συνίστησιν, τί ἐροῦμεν; μὴ ἄδικος θεὸς ἐπιφέρων τὴν ὀργήν; (κατὰ ἄνθρωπον λέγω.) 5 But {NEQ} , some might say , our {NEQ} sinfulness serves a good purpose , for it helps people see how righteous God is . Isn’t it unfair , then , for him {RPT} to punish us ? ( This is merely a human point of view . )
Rom.3:21 21νυνὶ δὲ χωρὶς νόμου δικαιοσύνη θεοῦ πεφανέρωται, μαρτυρουμένη ὑπὸ τοῦ νόμου καὶ τῶν προφητῶν· 21 But now God has shown us a way to be made right with him without keeping the requirements of the law , as was promised in the writings of Moses  *  and the prophets long ago .
Rom.3:22 22δικαιοσύνη δὲ θεοῦ διὰ πίστεως Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ· εἰς πάντας τοὺς πιστεύοντας, οὐ γάρ ἐστιν διαστολή. 22 {NEQ} We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ . And this is true for everyone who believes , {NEQ} no matter who we are .
Rom.3:25 25ὃν προέθετο θεὸς ἱλαστήριον· διὰ τῆς πίστεως, ἐν τῷ αὐτοῦ αἵματι· εἰς ἔνδειξιν τῆς δικαιοσύνης αὐτοῦ διὰ τὴν πάρεσιν τῶν προγεγονότων ἁμαρτημάτων, 25 For {NEQ} God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin . People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life , shedding his {NEQ} blood . This sacrifice shows that God {NEQ} was being fair when he held back and did not punish those who sinned in times past ,
Rom.3:26 26ἐν τῇ ἀνοχῇ τοῦ θεοῦ, πρὸς τὴν ἔνδειξιν τῆς δικαιοσύνης αὐτοῦ, ἐν τῷ νῦν καιρῷ· εἰς τὸ εἶναι αὐτὸν δίκαιον, καὶ δικαιοῦντα τὸν ἐκ πίστεως Ἰησοῦ. 26 for he was looking ahead and including them in what he would do in this present time . God did this to {NEQ} demonstrate his {NEQ} righteousness , for he himself is fair and just , and he declares sinners to be right in his sight when they believe in Jesus .
Rom.4:3 3τί γὰρ γραφὴ λέγει; ἐπίστευσεν δὲ Ἀβραὰμ τῷ θεῷ, καὶ ἐλογίσθη αὐτῷ εἰς δικαιοσύνην. 3 {NEQ} For the Scriptures tell us , {NEQ} Abraham believed {NEQ} God , and God counted him as righteous because of his faith .  * 
Rom.4:5 5τῷ δὲ μὴ ἐργαζομένῳ, πιστεύοντι δὲ ἐπὶ τὸν δικαιοῦντα τὸν ἀσεβῆ λογίζεται πίστις αὐτοῦ εἰς δικαιοσύνην· 5 But people {RPT} {RPT} are counted as righteous , not because of their work , but because of their faith in God who forgives sinners .
Rom.4:6 6καθάπερ καὶ Δαυεὶδ λέγει τὸν μακαρισμὸν τοῦ ἀνθρώπου θεὸς λογίζεται δικαιοσύνην χωρὶς ἔργων· 6 David also spoke of this when he described the happiness of those who {RPT} {RPT} are declared righteous without working for it :
Rom.4:9 9 μακαρισμὸς οὖν οὗτος ἐπὶ τὴν περιτομήν, καὶ ἐπὶ τὴν ἀκροβυστίαν; λέγομεν γάρ, ἐλογίσθη τῷ Ἀβραὰμ πίστις εἰς δικαιοσύνην. 9 Now , is this {NEQ} blessing only for the Jews , or is it also for {NEQ} uncircumcised Gentiles ?  *  Well , we have been saying that {NEQ} Abraham was counted as righteous by God because of his faith .
Rom.4:11 11καὶ σημεῖον ἔλαβεν περιτομῆς, σφραγῖδα τῆς δικαιοσύνης τῆς πίστεως— τῆς ἐν τῇ ἀκροβυστίᾳ· εἰς τὸ εἶναι αὐτὸν πατέρα πάντων τῶν πιστευόντων δι᾽ ἀκροβυστίας· εἰς τὸ λογισθῆναι αὐτοῖς τὴν δικαιοσύνην· 11 Circumcision was {NEQ} a sign that Abraham already had {RPT} faith and that God had already accepted him and declared him to be {RPT} righteous {RPT} even before {NEQ} he was circumcised . So Abraham is the spiritual father of those who have faith but have not been circumcised . They {NEQ} {NEQ} are counted as {NEQ} righteous because of their faith .
Rom.4:13 13οὐ γὰρ διὰ νόμου ἐπαγγελία τῷ Ἀβραὰμ τῷ σπέρματι αὐτοῦ τὸ κληρονόμον αὐτὸν εἶναι κόσμου, ἀλλὰ διὰ δικαιοσύνης πίστεως. 13 Clearly , God’s promise {RPT} to give the whole earth to {NEQ} Abraham and his {NEQ} descendants was based not on his obedience to God’s law , but on a right relationship with God that comes by faith .
Rom.4:22 22διὸ καί, ἐλογίσθη αὐτῷ εἰς δικαιοσύνην. 22 And because of Abraham’s faith , God counted him as righteous .
Rom.5:17 17εἰ γὰρ τῷ τοῦ ἑνὸς παραπτώματι, θάνατος ἐβασίλευσεν διὰ τοῦ ἑνός· πολλῷ μᾶλλον οἱ τὴν περισσείαν τῆς χάριτος καὶ τῆς δωρεᾶς τῆς δικαιοσύνης, λαμβάνοντες ἐν ζωῇ βασιλεύσουσιν διὰ τοῦ ἑνός, Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ. 17 For {NEQ} the sin of this one man , Adam , caused {NEQ} death to rule over many {RPT} {RPT} {RPT} . But even greater is God’s wonderful grace and his gift of {NEQ} righteousness , for all who receive it will live in triumph over sin and death through this one man , Jesus Christ .
Rom.5:21 21ἵνα ὥσπερ ἐβασίλευσεν ἁμαρτία ἐν τῷ θανάτῳ, οὕτως καὶ χάρις βασιλεύσῃ, διὰ δικαιοσύνης εἰς ζωὴν αἰώνιον διὰ Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν. 21 So just as {NEQ} sin ruled over all people and brought them to {NEQ} death , now God’s wonderful grace rules instead , giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our {NEQ} Lord .
Rom.6:13 13μηδὲ παριστάνετε τὰ μέλη ὑμῶν ὅπλα ἀδικίας τῇ ἁμαρτίᾳ· ἀλλά, παραστήσατε ἑαυτοὺς τῷ θεῷ, ὡσεὶ ἐκ νεκρῶν, ζῶντας· καὶ τὰ μέλη ὑμῶν ὅπλα δικαιοσύνης τῷ θεῷ. 13 Do not let any part of your body become an instrument of evil to serve {NEQ} sin . Instead , give yourselves completely to {NEQ} God , for you were dead , but now you have new life . So use your whole body as an instrument to do what is right for the glory of {NEQ} God .
Rom.6:16 16οὐκ οἴδατε ὅτι παριστάνετε ἑαυτοὺς δούλους εἰς ὑπακοήν, δοῦλοί ἐστε ὑπακούετε, ἤτοι ἁμαρτίας εἰς θάνατον, ὑπακοῆς εἰς δικαιοσύνην; 16 Don’t you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey ? {RPT} You {RPT} can be a slave {RPT} {RPT} to sin , which leads to death , or you can choose to obey God , which leads to righteous living .
Rom.6:18 18ἐλευθερωθέντες δὲ ἀπὸ τῆς ἁμαρτίας, ἐδουλώθητε τῇ δικαιοσύνῃ. 18 Now you are free from your slavery to sin , and you have become slaves {NEQ} to righteous living .
Rom.6:19 19ἀνθρώπινον λέγω διὰ τὴν ἀσθένειαν τῆς σαρκὸς ὑμῶν· ὥσπερ γάρ, παρεστήσατε τὰ μέλη ὑμῶν δοῦλα τῇ ἀκαθαρσίᾳ καὶ τῇ ἀνομίᾳ, εἰς τὴν ἀνομίαν· οὕτω νῦν παραστήσατε τὰ μέλη ὑμῶν δοῦλα τῇ δικαιοσύνῃ εἰς ἁγιασμόν. 19 Because of the weakness of your {NEQ} human nature , I am using the illustration of slavery to help you understand all this . Previously {NEQ} , you let yourselves be slaves to {NEQ} impurity and {NEQ} lawlessness , which led ever deeper into {NEQ} sin . Now you must give yourselves to be slaves {NEQ} to righteous living so that you will become holy .
Rom.6:20 20ὅτε γὰρ δοῦλοι ἦτε τῆς ἁμαρτίας, ἐλεύθεροι ἦτε τῇ δικαιοσύνῃ. 20 {NEQ} When you were slaves to {NEQ} sin , you were free from the obligation to {NEQ} do right .
Rom.8:10 10εἰ δὲ Χριστὸς ἐν ὑμῖν, τὸ μὲν σῶμα νεκρὸν διὰ ἁμαρτίαν, τὸ δὲ πνεῦμα ζωὴ διὰ δικαιοσύνην. 10 And {NEQ} Christ lives within you , so even though your body will die because of sin , {NEQ} the Spirit gives you life  *  because you have been made right with God .
Rom.9:30 30τί οὖν ἐροῦμεν; ὅτι ἔθνη τὰ μὴ διώκοντα δικαιοσύνην κατέλαβεν δικαιοσύνην· δικαιοσύνην δὲ τὴν ἐκ πίστεως· 30 What {NEQ} does all this mean ? {NEQ} Even though the Gentiles {NEQ} were not trying to follow God’s standards , they were made right with God . And it was by {NEQ} faith that this took place .
Rom.9:31 31Ἰσραὴλ δέ, διώκων νόμον δικαιοσύνης, εἰς νόμον οὐκ ἔφθασεν. 31 But the people of Israel , who tried so hard to get right with God by keeping the law , never {NEQ} {RPT} succeeded .
Rom.10:3 3ἀγνοοῦντες γὰρ τὴν τοῦ θεοῦ δικαιοσύνην· καὶ τὴν ἰδίαν δικαιοσύνην ζητοῦντες στῆσαι, τῇ δικαιοσύνῃ τοῦ θεοῦ οὐχ ὑπετάγησαν· 3 For they don’t understand {NEQ} God’s {NEQ} way of making people right with himself . {NEQ} Refusing to accept {NEQ} God’s way , they cling to their own way of getting right with God by trying to keep the law .
Rom.10:4 4τέλος γὰρ νόμου Χριστὸς εἰς δικαιοσύνην· παντὶ τῷ πιστεύοντι. 4 For Christ has already accomplished the purpose for which the law was given .  *  As a result , all who believe in him are made right with God .
Rom.10:5 5Μωυσῆς γὰρ γράφει ὅτι τὴν δικαιοσύνην τὴν ἐκ τοῦ νόμου ποιήσας ἄνθρωπος ζήσεται ἐν αὐτοῖς. 5 For Moses writes that {NEQ} the law’s {RPT} way of making a person right with God {RPT} requires obedience to all of its commands .  * 
Rom.10:6 6 δὲ ἐκ πίστεως δικαιοσύνη οὕτως λέγει, Μὴ εἴπῃς ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ σου, Τίς ἀναβήσεται εἰς τὸν οὐρανόν; (τοῦτ᾽ ἔστιν Χριστὸν καταγαγεῖν.) 6 But {NEQ} {NEQ} faith’s way of getting right with God {NEQ} says , Don’t say in your {NEQ} heart , Who will go up to {NEQ} heaven ? ( {NEQ} {NEQ} to bring Christ down to earth ) .
Rom.10:10 10καρδίᾳ γὰρ πιστεύεται εἰς δικαιοσύνην, στόματι δὲ ὁμολογεῖται εἰς σωτηρίαν. 10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God , and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved .
Rom.14:17 17οὐ γάρ ἐστιν βασιλεία τοῦ θεοῦ βρῶσις καὶ πόσις, ἀλλὰ δικαιοσύνη καὶ εἰρήνη καὶ χαρὰ ἐν πνεύματι ἁγίῳ. 17 For the Kingdom of {NEQ} God is not a matter of what we eat or drink , but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit .
1Cor.1:30 30ἐξ αὐτοῦ δὲ ὑμεῖς ἐστὲ ἐν Χριστῷ Ἰησοῦ· ὃς ἐγενήθη σοφία ἡμῖν ἀπὸ θεοῦ· δικαιοσύνη τε, καὶ ἁγιασμός, καὶ ἀπολύτρωσις. 30 {NEQ} God has united you with Christ Jesus . For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself . {NEQ} Christ made us right with God ; {NEQ} he made us pure and holy , and he freed us from sin .
2Cor.3:9 9εἰ γὰρ τῇ διακονίᾳ τῆς κατακρίσεως δόξα, πολλῷ μᾶλλον περισσεύει διακονία τῆς δικαιοσύνης δόξῃ. 9 If {NEQ} the old way , which brings condemnation , was glorious , how much more glorious is the new way , which makes us right with God !
2Cor.5:21 21τὸν μὴ γνόντα ἁμαρτίαν, ὑπὲρ ἡμῶν ἁμαρτίαν ἐποίησεν, ἵνα ἡμεῖς γενώμεθα δικαιοσύνη θεοῦ ἐν αὐτῷ. 21 For God made Christ , who never sinned , to be the offering for our sin ,  *  so that we could be made right with God through Christ .
2Cor.6:7 7ἐν λόγῳ ἀληθείας· ἐν δυνάμει θεοῦ· διὰ τῶν ὅπλων τῆς δικαιοσύνης— τῶν δεξιῶν καὶ ἀριστερῶν· 7 We faithfully preach the truth . God’s power is working in us . We use the weapons of {NEQ} righteousness in the right hand for attack and the left hand for defense .
2Cor.6:14 14μὴ γίνεσθε ἑτεροζυγοῦντες ἀπίστοις. τίς γὰρ μετοχὴ δικαιοσύνῃ καὶ ἀνομίᾳ; τίς κοινωνία φωτὶ πρὸς σκότος; 14 Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers . {NEQ} How can righteousness be a partner {NEQ} with wickedness ? {NEQ} How can light live with darkness ?
2Cor.9:9 9καθὼς γέγραπται, Ἐσκόρπισεν, ἔδωκεν τοῖς πένησιν· δικαιοσύνη αὐτοῦ μένει εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα· 9 As the Scriptures say , They share freely and give generously to the poor . Their {NEQ} good deeds will be remembered forever .  * 
2Cor.9:10 10 δὲ ἐπιχορηγῶν σπόρον τῷ σπείροντι καὶ ἄρτον εἰς βρῶσιν, χορηγήσει καὶ πληθυνεῖ τὸν σπόρον ὑμῶν καὶ αὐξήσει τὰ γενήματα τῆς δικαιοσύνης ὑμῶν. 10 For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat . In the same way , he will provide and increase your {NEQ} resources and then produce a great harvest of {NEQ} generosity  *  in you .
2Cor.11:15 15οὐ μέγα οὖν εἰ καὶ οἱ διάκονοι αὐτοῦ μετασχηματίζονται ὡς διάκονοι δικαιοσύνης· ὧν τὸ τέλος ἔσται κατὰ τὰ ἔργα αὐτῶν. 15 So it is no wonder that his {NEQ} servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness . In the end they will get the punishment their {NEQ} wicked deeds deserve .
Gal.2:21 21οὐκ ἀθετῶ τὴν χάριν τοῦ θεοῦ· εἰ γὰρ διὰ νόμου δικαιοσύνη, ἄρα Χριστὸς δωρεὰν ἀπέθανεν. 21 I do not treat the grace of {NEQ} God as meaningless . For if keeping the law could make us right with God , then there was no need for Christ to die .
Gal.3:6 6καθώς, Ἀβραὰμ ἐπίστευσεν τῷ θεῷ, καὶ ἐλογίσθη αὐτῷ εἰς δικαιοσύνην. 6 In the same way , Abraham believed {NEQ} God , and God counted him as righteous because of his faith .  * 
Gal.3:21 21 οὖν, νόμος κατὰ τῶν ἐπαγγελιῶν τοῦ θεοῦ; μὴ γένοιτο· εἰ γὰρ ἐδόθη νόμος δυνάμενος ζωοποιῆσαι, ὄντως ἐν νόμῳ ἂν ἦν δικαιοσύνη. 21 Is there a conflict , then , between God’s {NEQ} law and {NEQ} God’s {NEQ} promises ?  *  Absolutely not ! {NEQ} If the law {NEQ} could give us new life , we could be {NEQ} made right with God by obeying it .
Gal.5:5 5ἡμεῖς γὰρ πνεύματι ἐκ πίστεως ἐλπίδα δικαιοσύνης ἀπεκδεχόμεθα. 5 But we who live by the Spirit eagerly wait to receive by faith the righteousness God has promised to us .
Eph.4:24 24καὶ ἐνδύσασθαι τὸν καινὸν ἄνθρωπον, τὸν κατὰ θεὸν κτισθέντα— ἐν δικαιοσύνῃ, καὶ ὁσιότητι, τῆς ἀληθείας. 24 {NEQ} Put on your new nature , {NEQ} created to be like God truly righteous and holy .

Phil.3:6 6κατὰ ζῆλος διώκων τὴν ἐκκλησίαν· κατὰ δικαιοσύνην, τὴν ἐν νόμῳ γενόμενος ἄμεμπτος. 6 I was so zealous that I harshly persecuted the church . And as for righteousness , {RPT} I obeyed the law without fault .
Phil.3:9 9καὶ εὑρεθῶ ἐν αὐτῷ· μὴ ἔχων ἐμὴν δικαιοσύνην τὴν ἐκ νόμου· ἀλλά, τὴν διὰ πίστεως Χριστοῦ· τὴν ἐκ θεοῦ δικαιοσύνην ἐπὶ τῇ πίστει· 9 and become one with him . I no longer count on my own righteousness {RPT} through obeying the law ; rather , I become {RPT} righteous through faith in Christ .  *  For God’s way of making us right with himself depends on {NEQ} faith .
1Tim.6:11 11σὺ δέ, ἄνθρωπε θεοῦ· ταῦτα φεῦγε. δίωκε δὲ δικαιοσύνην εὐσέβειαν, πίστιν, ἀγάπην, ὑπομονήν, πραϋπαθίαν. 11 But you , Timothy , are a man of God ; so run from all these evil things . {NEQ} Pursue righteousness and a godly life , along with faith , love , perseverance , and gentleness .

2Tim.4:8 8λοιπὸν ἀπόκειταί μοι— τῆς δικαιοσύνης στέφανος ὃν ἀποδώσει μοι κύριος, ἐν ἐκείνῃ τῇ ἡμέρᾳ, δίκαιος κριτής· οὐ μόνον δὲ ἐμοὶ ἀλλὰ καὶ πᾶσιν τοῖς ἠγαπηκόσι τὴν ἐπιφάνειαν αὐτοῦ. 8 And now the prize awaits me the crown of {NEQ} righteousness , which the Lord , the righteous Judge , will give me on the day of his return .

Heb.1:9 9ἠγάπησας δικαιοσύνην καὶ ἐμίσησας ἀνομίαν· διὰ τοῦτο, ἔχρισέν σε θεός, θεός σου, ἔλαιον ἀγαλλιάσεως παρὰ τοὺς μετόχους σου· 9 You love justice and hate evil . Therefore , O {NEQ} God , your {NEQ} God has anointed you , pouring out the oil of joy on you more than on anyone else .  *
