1 Corinthians 6:9-10 "Know ye not that the unrighteous [dikov, unjust] shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10. Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers [abusive language], nor extortioners [taking from others by coercion/intimidation], shall inherit the kingdom of God."
1 Timothy 1:9-10 "Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous [dikiaov, just] man, but for the lawless [anomia] and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers . . ., 10. For whoremongers, . . . for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;"
1 John 3:7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth [present active, practices] righteousness is righteous [dikiaov, just], even as he is righteous [just].

1 Timothy 6:12, 14 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses. . . . 14 That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:
1 John 2:3-4 "And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him."

Romans 6:14-15 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under (dominion) grace. 15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under (dominion) grace? God forbid.
Romans 5:21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness (being just) unto [leading to] eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

Matthew 13:41-43 "The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do [present active, practice] iniquity; [anomia, lawlessness (the unjust)] 2. And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43. Then shall the righteous [dikaiov, just] shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear."
Hebrews12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have [present subjunctive, may we have] grace (by faith), whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear (just):

Matthew 25:24-26 "Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strowed: 25. And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine. 26. His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant (he did his duty), thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strowed:"

2 Corinthians 5:10-11 "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. 11. Knowing therefore the terror [fear] of the Lord, we persuade men;. . . "
Hebrews 10:38-39 "Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. 39. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe [of faith] to the saving of the soul."
