23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.25 God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement,[a] through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished—26 he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.
Romans 3:25The Greek for sacrifice of atonement refers to the atonement cover on the ark of the covenant (see Lev. 16:15,16).
56 “Praise be to the Lord, who has given rest to his people Israel just as he promised. Not one word has failed of all the good promises he gave through his servant Moses.57 May the Lord our God be with us as he was with our ancestors; may he never leave us nor forsake us.58 May he turn our hearts to him, to walk in obedience to him and keep the commands, decrees and laws he gave our ancestors.59 And may these words of mine, which I have prayed before the Lord, be near to the Lord our God day and night, that he may uphold the cause of his servant and the cause of his people Israel according to each day’s need,60 so that all the peoples of the earth may know that the Lord is God and that there is no other.61 And may your hearts be fully committed to the Lord our God, to live by his decrees and obey his commands, as at this time.”
