Righteousness through Faith
21 But now is the righteousness of God made manifest without the Law, having witness of the Law, and of the Prophets;22 To wit, the righteousness of God by the faith of Jesus Christ, unto all, and upon all that believe. 23 For there is no difference; for all have sinned, and are deprived of the glory of God, 24 And are justified freely by his grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 Whom God hath set forth to be a reconciliation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness, by the forgiveness of the sins that are passed, 26 Through the patience of God, to shew at this time his righteousness, that he might be just, and a justifier of him which is of the faith of Jesus. 27 Where is then the rejoicing? It is excluded. By what Law? Of works? Nay, but by the Law of faith. 28 Therefore we conclude, that a man is justified by faith, without the works of the Law. 29 God, is he the God of the Jews only, and not of the Gentiles also? Yes, even of the Gentiles also. 30 For it is one God, who shall justify circumcision of faith, and uncircumcision through faith. 31 Do we then make the Law of none effect through faith? God forbid; yea, we establish the Law.
