Or “ethical” vs “moral”

    Morality is to do good and refrain from evil; to praise good and condemn evil; to seek out good and keep away from evil.

    Ethics is to figure out what makes something good or evil: understanding what we can mean by those words; and what sorts of actions, motives, or dispositions fall under those categories, and why.

    Justice is to build social systems that promote good and deter evil; including establishing the facts of what someone has done, and prescribing actions to be taken in response.
