He said unto him, What is written in the law? How readest thou?
To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.
Now we know that all that the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may submit themselves unto God.
For if those who are of the law are the heirs, faith is in vain, and the promise annulled,
For Moses describes the righteousness which is by the law, That the man who does those things shall live by them.
And the law is not of faith, but The man that does the commandments shall live by them.
Is the law then against the promises of God? No, in no wise, for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.
