Romans 3:20-25 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
20 For no one will be justified[a] in His sight by the works of the law, because the knowledge of sin comes through the law.
God’s Righteousness through Faith
21 But now, apart from the law, God’s righteousness has been revealed—attested by the Law and the Prophets[b] 22 —that is, God’s righteousness through faith in Jesus Christ,[c] to all who believe, since there is no distinction. 23 For all have sinned and fall short of the[d] glory of God. 24 They are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. 25 God presented Him as a propitiation[e] through faith in His blood, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His restraint God passed over the sins previously committed.
