Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
But now a righteousness coming from God has been brought to light apart from any Law, both Law and Prophets bearing witness to it--
For what if some Jews have proved unfaithful? Shall their faithlessness render God's faithfulness worthless?
He who believes in the Son has the Life of the Ages; he who disobeys the Son will not enter into Life, but God's anger remains upon him.
It is evident, too, that no one can find acceptance with God simply by obeying the Law, because "the righteous shall live by faith,"
not having a righteousness of my own, derived from the Law, but that which arises from faith in Christ--the righteousness which comes from God through faith.
But it is by faith that My righteous servant shall live; and if he shrinks back, My soul takes no pleasure in him."
But where there is no faith it is impossible truly to please Him; for the man who draws near to God must believe that there is a God and that He proves Himself a rewarder of those who earnestly try to find Him.
