Romans 3:21-26 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

21 But now without the law the rightwiseness of God is showed, that is witnessed of the law and the prophets.

22 And the rightwiseness of God is by the faith of Jesus Christ into all men and on all men that believe in him; for there is no parting. [Soothly the rightwiseness of God is by the faith of Jesus Christ into all and on all that believe into him; forsooth there is no distinction, or parting.]

23 For all men sinned, and have need to the glory of God;

24 and be justified freely by his grace, by the again-buying that is in Christ Jesus [by the redemption, or the again-buying, that is in Jesus Christ].

25 Whom God ordained forgiver [Whom God purposed an helper], by faith in his blood, to the showing of his rightwiseness, for [the] remission of before-going sins, in the bearing up of God,

26 to the showing of his rightwiseness in this time, that he be just, and justifying him that is of the faith of Jesus Christ.

Romans 3:21-26 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

21 But now is manifested the righteousness that comes of God without the fulfilling of the law, yet having the witness of the law, and of the prophets. 22 Without doubt, the righteousness which is good before God comes by the faith of Jesus Christ, to all and upon all who believe.

There is no difference. 23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 but are justified freely by his grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. 25 Him God has made a seat of mercy, through faith in his blood, to show the righteousness that is of value before him, in that he forgives the sins that are past. 26 These God suffered in order to show at this time the righteousness that is granted by him, so that he may be counted just, and a justifier of the person who believes on Jesus.

Romans 3:21-26 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

21 [a]But now is the righteousness of God made manifest without the Law, having witness of the Law, and of the Prophets,

22 [b]To wit, the righteousness of God by the faith of [c]Jesus Christ, unto all, and upon all that believe.

23 For there is no difference: for all have sinned, and are deprived of the [d]glory of God,

24 [e]And are justified [f]freely by his grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,

25 [g]Whom God hath set forth to be a reconciliation through faith in his [h]blood to declare his righteousness, by the forgiveness of the sins that [i]are passed,

26 Through the [j]patience of God, to show at [k]this time his righteousness, that he might be [l]just, and a [m]justifier of him which is of the [n]faith of Jesus.


  1. Romans 3:21 Therefore saith the Apostle, Lest that men should perish, God doth now exhibit that, which he promised of old, that is to say, a way whereby we may be justified and saved before him without the Law.
  2. Romans 3:22 The matter, as it were of this righteousness, is Christ Jesus apprehended by faith, and for this end offered to all people, as without him all people are shut out from the kingdom of God.
  3. Romans 3:22 Which we give to Jesus Christ, or which resteth upon him.
  4. Romans 3:23 By the Glory of God, is meant that mark which we all shoot at, that is, everlasting life, which standeth in that we are made partakers of the glory of God.
  5. Romans 3:24 Therefore this righteousness touching us, is altogether freely given, for it standeth upon those things which we have not done ourselves, but such as Christ hath suffered for our sakes, to deliver us from sin.
  6. Romans 3:24 Of his free gift, and mere liberality.
  7. Romans 3:25 God then is the author of that free justification, because it pleaseth him: and Christ is he, which suffered punishment for our sins, and in whom we have remission of them: and the means whereby we apprehend Christ, is faith. To be short, the end is the setting forth of the goodness of God, that by this means it may appear, that he is merciful indeed, and constant in his promises, as he that freely, and of mere grace justifieth the believers.
  8. Romans 3:25 This name of Blood, calleth us back to the figure of the old sacrifices, the truth and substance of which sacrifices is in Christ.
  9. Romans 3:25 Of those sins which we committed when we were his enemies.
  10. Romans 3:26 Through his patience, and suffering nature.
  11. Romans 3:26 To wit, when Paul wrote this.
  12. Romans 3:26 That he might be found exceeding true and faithful.
  13. Romans 3:26 Making him just, and without blame by imputing Christ’s righteousness unto him.
  14. Romans 3:26 Of the number of them which by faith lay hold upon Christ: contrary to whom, are they which look to be saved by circumcision, that is, by the Law.

Romans 3:21-26 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; 22 even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: 23 for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 24 being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: 25 whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 26 to declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
