Therefore now no condemnation to them in Christ Jesus, walking not according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus freed me from the law of sin and death.

For Christ the end of the law for justice to every one believing. For Moses writes the justice of the law, That the man having done these things shall live in them. And the justice of faith says thus, Thou shouldest not say in thy heart, Who shall go up to heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down:) Or, Who shall go down to the abyss? (that is, to bring up Christ from the dead.) But what does it say? The word is near thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we proclaim; For if thou confess in thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in thy heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart is believed for justice: and with the mouth is confessed for salvation. For the writing says, Every one believing upon him shall not be ashamed. For no distinction is of the Jew and also of the Greek: for the same Lord of all being rich to all calling upon him. For every one whoever should call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

For he having said, Thou shouldest not commit adultery, said also, Thou shouldest not kill: and if thou commit not adultery, and dost kill, thou hast become a transgressor of the law. So speak ye, and so do, as about to be judged by the law of liberty. For unpropitiated judgment to him not doing mercy; and mercy boasteth against judgment. And what profit, my brethren, if any say he has faith, and should not have works? can faith save him? And if a brother or sister be naked, and be failing of daily food, And any of you say to them, Retire in peace, be ye warmed and be ye fed; and ye give them not things fitting the body; what profit? So also faith, if it have not works, is dead by itself. But certain will say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: show me thy faith without thy works, and I will show thee my faith from my works. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: and the evil spirits believe, and shudder. And wilt thou know, O empty man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, having brought up Isaac his son upon the altar Thou seest that faith cooperated with his works, and from works was faith perfected. And the writing was completed, saying, And Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him for justice: and he was called the Friend of God. Therefore ye see that man is justified from works, and not from faith alone. And likewise also was not Rehab the harlot justified by works, having received the messengers, and cast out by another way? For as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.

And to the messenger of the church of the Smyrnians write; Thus says the first and the last, who was dead and he lived; I know thy works, and pressure, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and the blasphemy of them saying themselves to be Jews, and are not, but the synagogue of the adversary.

And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given them: and the souls of them beheaded with an axe for the testimony of Jesus, and for the word of God, and who worshipped not the wild beast, nor his image, and took not the stamp upon their foreheads, and upon their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years. And the rest of the dead returned not again to life even till the thousand years be finished. This the first rising up.

For the eyes of the Lord upon the just, and his ears to their prayer: and the face of the Lord against them doing evil. And who going to injure you, if ye be imitators of good? But if ye also suffer for justice, happy are ye: be not afraid of their fear, neither be troubled; read more.
