For one man is not different from another before God.
(For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.
No flesh will be justified before God by works of the law. Knowledge of sin comes from the law.
But now, without the law, righteousness before God is manifested, being attested by the law and the prophets;
The righteousness, no doubt, which is good before God cometh by the faith of Jesus Christ: unto all, and upon all them that believe.
There is no difference: For all have sinned, and lack the praise that is of valour before God:
For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God.
(just as it is written, "I have made you the father of many nations") before God, in whom he believed, the one who makes the dead alive and who calls the things that are not as [though] they are,
Who was betrayed and put to death because of our misdeeds and was raised to secure our justification (our acquittal), [making our account balance and absolving us from all guilt before God].
And He Who searches the hearts of men knows what is in the mind of the [Holy] Spirit [what His intent is], because the Spirit intercedes and pleads [before God] in behalf of the saints according to and in harmony with God's will.
For they are ignorant of the righteousness which is allowed before God, and go about to establish their own righteousness: and therefore, are not obedient unto the righteousness which is of value before God.
But you, why do you find fault with your brother? Or you, why do you look down upon your brother? We shall all stand before God to be judged;
Hast thou faith? have it to thyself before God. Happy is he that condemneth not himself in that thing which he alloweth.
But the man who has doubts (misgivings, an uneasy conscience) about eating, and then eats [perhaps because of you], stands condemned [before God], because he is not true to his convictions and he does not act from faith. For whatever does not originate and proceed from faith is sin [whatever is done without a conviction of its approval by God is sinful].
