A. The Definition
21 But now, 1apart from the law, the 2righteousness of God has been 3manifested, witness being borne to it by the Law and the Prophets;
22 Even the righteousness of God through the 1faith of Jesus Christ to all those who believe, for there is no distinction;
23 For aall have sinned and fall short of the 1glory of God,
24 Being 1justified 2freely by His grace through the 3redemption which is in Christ Jesus;
25 Whom God 1set forth as a 2apropitiation place through faith in His blood, for the demonstrating of His righteousness, in that in His forbearance God 3passed over the sins that had previously occurred,
26 With a view to the demonstrating of His righteousness in the present time, so that He might be righteous and the One who 1justifies him who is of the 2faith of Jesus.
27 Where then is boasting? 1It is excluded. Through what kind of law? That of works? No, but through the law of faith.
28 For we account that aa man is justified by faith apart from the works of the law.
29 Or is He the God of the Jews only? Is He not of the Gentiles also? Yes, of the Gentiles also,
30 If indeed God is one, who will justify the circumcision 1out of faith and the auncircumcision 1through faith.
31 Do we then make the law of no effect through faith? Absolutely not! Rather, we establish the law.
