HELPS word-Studies

Cognate: 1345 dikaíōma (a neuter noun, literally, "a judicially-approved act") – properly, an act God approves, focusing on its "result" (Zodhiates, Dict, note the -ma ending); justification (righteousness), with its results. See 1343 (dikaiosynē).

1345 /dikaíōma ("an act which is right according to the Lord") is "an act of righteousness, a concrete expression of righteousness" (Vine, Unger, White, NT, 11) which correlates to its profound (eternal) effect. For the believer, this particularly relates to their unique glorification awarded at Christ's return (cf. Rev 19:8).

[1345 (dikaíōma) is "not merely divine decisions, but righteous acts generally" (WS). The emphasis here is on the results that go with having God's approval (righteousness).]
