The Righteousness Of God Through Faith In Christ

3 because being ignorant of the justice which is of God, and going about to establish a justification of their own, they have not submitted themselves to that which is of God. 4 for the end of the law was to bring men to Christ, that every one who believeth, might be justified. 5 For Moses describes the justice that was to be had by the law, thus : "the man who performeth the things here required, shall have life thereby."
