Holy and Righteous One

Holy and Righteous One is one way to translate this Greek phrase. The Greek word dikaios can also be translated as “Just One,” the idea underlying the KJV. The phrase is one of the names of Jesus (Yeshua‘) in the New Testament. Jesus was both righteous and holy, so the title describes Him well.
