What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?
Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of Elohim.
For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of Elohim without effect?
Elohim forbid: yea, let Elohim be true, but every man a
liar; as it is written,
That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and
mightest overcome when thou art judged.
But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of Elohim, what shall we say? Is Elohim unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man)
Elohim forbid: for then how shall Elohim judge the world?
For if the truth of Elohim hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner?
And not rather, (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) Let us do evil, that good may come? whose damnation is just.
What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;
Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before Elohim.
Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
But now the righteousness of Elohim without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
Even the righteousness of Elohim which is by faith of Yahshua Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of Elohim;
Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Yahshua:
Whom Elohim hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of Elohim;
To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Yahshua.
Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.
Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
Is he the Elohim of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also:
Seeing it is one Elohim, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.
Do we then make void the law through faith? Elohim forbid: yea, we establish the law.
