In order that, the righteous requirement of the law, might be fulfilled in us - who, not according to flesh, do walk, but according to spirit; For, they who according to flesh have their being, the things of the flesh do prefer, but, they according to the spirit, the things of the spirit; For, what is preferred by the flesh, is death, whereas, what is preferred by the spirit, is life and peace; - Inasmuch as, what is preferred by the flesh, is hostile towards God, for, unto the law of God, it doth not submit itself, neither in fact can it. - They, moreover, who in flesh have their being, cannot please, God. But, ye, have not your being in flesh, but in spirit, - if at least, God's Spirit, dwelleth in you; and, if anyone hath not Christ's Spirit, the same, is not his; - But, if Christ is in you, the body, indeed, is dead by reason of sin, whereas, the spirit, is life by reason of righteousness; If, moreover, the Spirit of him that raised Jesus from among the dead dwelleth in you, he that raised from among the dead Christ Jesus, shall make alive evenyour death-doomed bodies, through means of his indwelling Spirit within you. Hence, then, brethren - debtors, we are, not unto the flesh, that, according to flesh, we should live, - For, if according to flesh ye live, ye are about to die, whereas, if in spirit, the practices of the flesh, ye are putting to death, ye shall attain unto life; For, as many as by God's Spirit are being led, the same, are God's sons, - For ye have not received a spirit of servitude, leading back into fear, but ye have received a spirit of sonship, whereby we are exclaiming - Abba! Oh Father! The Spirit itself, beareth witness together with our spirit that we are children of God; And, if children, heirs also - heirs, indeed, of God, but co-heirs with Christ, - if, at least, we are suffering together, in order that we may also be glorified together. For I reckon that unworthy are the sufferings of the present season to be compared with the glory about to be revealed towards us;

For Christ is an end of law, for righteousness, unto every one that believeth. For, Moses, writeth that - as touching the righteousness that is by law, The man that hath done it , shall live thereby; Whereas, the righteousness by faith, thus speaketh - Do not say in thy heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? That is, to bring, Christ, down, Or, Who shall descend into the abyss? That is, to bring up, Christ, from among the dead; But what saith it? Near thee, is the declaration, In thy mouth and in thy heart, - that is, the declaration of the faith, which we proclaim: - That, if thou shalt confess the declaration with thy mouth - That Jesus is, Lord, and shalt believe with thy hear - That, God, raised him from among the dead, thou shalt be saved; - For, in heart, it is to be believed unto righteousness, and, by mouth, it is to be confessed unto salvation. For the scripture saith - No one that resteth faith thereupon, shall be put to shame? For there is no distinction - of Jew or Greek, - for, the same Lord , is Lord of all, being rich unto all who call upon him; For, Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved: -

In everything, give thanks, - for, this, is a thing willed of God, in Christ Jesus, towards you: The Spirit, do not quench, Prophesyings, do not despise, But, all things, put to the proof - what is comely, hold ye fast: From every form of wickedness, abstain. But, the God of peace himself, hallow you completely, and, entire, might your spirit, and soul, and body, - so as to be unblameable in the Presence of our Lord Jesus Christ, - be preserved!

If ye are, indeed, fulfilling, a royal law, according to the scripture - Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, nobly, are ye doing; But, if ye are shewing respect of persons, sin, are ye working, being convicted by the law as transgressors!

For, he that hath said - Do not commit adultery, hath also said - Do not commit murder, - now, if thou dost not commit adultery, but dost commit murder, thou hast become a transgressor of law. So, be speaking, and, so, doing, as they who, through means of a law of freedom, are about to be judged; For, the judgment, will be without mercy, unto him that hath shewed no mercy: Mercy, boasteth, over judgment. What profit, my brethren, - if one should be saying he hath, faith, but hath not, works; can his faith save him? If, a brother or sister, should be naked, and coming short of the daily food, And one from among you should say unto them - Withdraw in peace, be getting warmed and fed, but should not give them the things needful for the body, What the profit? So, also, faith, if it have not works, is dead, by itself. But one will say, - Thou, hast faith, and, I, have works, show me thy faith apart from thy works, and, I, unto thee, will shew, by my works, my faith. Thou believest that God is, one: thou doest, well - Even the demons believe, and shudder! But art thou willing to learn, O empty man! that, faith, apart from works, is, idle? Abraham our father, was it not, by works, he was declared righteous - when he offered Isaac his son upon the altar? Thou seest that, his faith, had been working together with his works, and by his works did his faith become full-grown, - And the scripture was fulfilled which saith - And Abraham believed God, And it was reckoned to him as righteousness, and, God's friend, was he called: Ye see that - by works, a man is declared righteous, and not by faith alone. And, in like manner also, Rahab the harlot, Was it not, by works, she was declared righteous, when she gave welcome unto the messengers, and, by another way, urged them forth? Just as, the body, apart from spirit, is dead, so, our faith also, apart from works, is dead.
