Letter to the Romans    3: 21-30

3:21 But now, without the law, the justice of God, to which the law and the prophets have testified, has been made manifest.
3:22 And the justice of God, though the faith of Jesus Christ, is in all those and over all those who believe in him. For there is no distinction.
3:23 For all have sinned and all are in need of the glory of God.
3:24 We have been justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,
3:25 whom God has offered as a propitiation, through faith in his blood, to reveal his justice for the remission of the former offenses,
3:26 and by the forbearance of God, to reveal his justice in this time, so that he himself might be both the Just One and the Justifier of anyone who is of the faith of Jesus Christ.
3:27 So then, where is your self-exaltation? It is excluded. Through what law? That of works? No, but rather through the law of faith.
3:28 For we judge a man to be justified by faith, without the works of the law.
3:29 Is God of the Jews only and not also of the Gentiles? On the contrary, of the Gentiles also.
3:30 For One is the God who justifies circumcision by faith and uncircumcision through faith.
