English Standard Version
23 for (A)all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 (B)and are justified (C)by his grace as a gift, (D)through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God (E)put forward as (F)a propitiation (G)by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God's righteousness, because in (H)his divine forbearance he had passed over (I)former sins. 26 It was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
27 (J)Then what becomes of our boasting? It is excluded. By what kind of law? By a law of works? No, but by the law of faith. 28 For we hold that one is justified by faith (K)apart from works of the law.Read full chapter
