Justice must be the equivalent of righteousness.  

I was reading Proverbs 10 which makes the following comparisons.
  1. Ill Gotten Treasure v. Righteousness Which Delivers From Death (vrs 2)
  2. Violence v. Blessings Upon The Righteous (vrs 6)
  3. The name of the righteous is used in blessing, but the name of the wicked will rot.  (vrs 7)
  4. Concealed Violence v. Righteousness Is A Fountain of Life (vrs. 11)
  5. Earnings of the Wicked v. Righteousness Is Life (vrs. 16)
  6. Wicked Hearts v. Righteous Tongues (vrs. 20)
  7. Overtaken By Wicked Desires v. Granted Righteous Desires (vrs. 24)
  8. Storms Sweep Wicked v. Righteous Standing Firm (vrs. 25)
  9. No Hope v. Joyous Prospects For Righteous (vrs.28)
  10. Wicked Deported v. Righteous Stands (vrs. 30)
  11. Silence Perversion v. Wisdom of Righteousness (vrs. 31)
I don't know about you, but righteousness is looking an awful lot like justice to me.
