For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “But the righteous man shall live by faith.”
“Behold, as for the proud one,
His soul is not right within him;
But the righteous will live by his faith.
Now that no one is justified by the Law before God is evident; for, “The righteous man shall live by faith.”
But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets,
But My righteous one shall live by faith;
And if he shrinks back, My soul has no pleasure in him.
and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith,
He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”
What then? If some did not believe, their unbelief will not nullify the faithfulness of God, will it?
What shall we say then? That Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, attained righteousness, even the righteousness which is by faith;
And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.
