some affirm that we say,) Let them that believe: for there is us do evil, that good may come? whose damnation is no difference: just.

9 What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;

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:

10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: 25 Whom God hath set forth 11 There is none that under- to be a propitiation through standeth, there is none that faith in his blood, to declare seeketh after God.

16 Destruction and misery are in their ways:

17 And the way of peace have they not known:

18 There is no fear of God before their eyes.


27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay but by the law of faith.

28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.

WHAT shall we say then faith of our father Abraham,

that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found?

2 For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God. 3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.

which he had being yet uncircumcised.

13 For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, was not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.

T4 For if they which are of the law be heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect:

15 Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression. 16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all.

5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. 6 Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works. 7Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, 17 (As it is written, I have and whose sins are covered. made thee a father of many 8 Blessed is the man to whom nations,) before him whom he the Lord will not impute sin. believed, even God, who quick9 Cometh this eneth the dead, and calleth blessedness then upon the circumcision those things which be not as only, or upon the uncircum- though they were.
