21  But now the righteousness of God apart from the law has been revealed, being witnessed to by the Law and the Prophets,

21  But now apart from the law a righteousness of God hath been manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;

21  But now, without the law, the justice of God, to which the law and the prophets have testified, has been made manifest.

22  even the righteousness of God, through [the] faithfulness of Jesus Christ, to all and upon all those that believe. For there is no distinction;

22  And the justice of God, though the faith of Jesus Christ, is in all those and over all those who believe in him. For there is no distinction.

22  But the righteousness of God is by the faith of Jesus Christ to every one, also to every man who believes in him, for there is no discrimination

23  for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

24  being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,

24  For they are freely bestowed righteousness by the grace of God through the salvation which is in Jesus Christ,

25  whom God set forth as a propitiation through faith in His blood, for a demonstration of His righteousness through the passing over of the sins having previously committed, in the forbearance of God,

25  whom God has offered as a propitiation, through faith in his blood, to reveal his justice for the remission of the former offenses,

25  Whom God 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 God;

Byz Nes V TR

26  for a demonstration of His righteousness in the present time, that He might be just and the justifier of he who has [the] faith of Jesus.

26  By the opportunity which God has given us through his forbearance, for the manifestation of his righteousness at the present time, that he might be declared righteous; and for the justification of righteousness to him who is in the faith of our LORD Jesus Christ.

27  Where then is the boasting? It is excluded. Through what law? Of works? No, but through the law of faith.

27  So then, where is your self-exaltation? It is excluded. Through what law? That of works? No, but rather through the law of faith.

27  Where is boasting then? It is worthless. By what law? of works? No: but by the law of faith.

Byz Nes S TR

28  Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the law.

28  For we judge a man to be justified by faith, without the works of the law.

29  Or is He the God of the Jews only? But is He not also the God of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also,

29  Is God of the Jews only and not also of the Gentiles? On the contrary, of the Gentiles also.

30  since there is one God who will justify [the ]circumcision by faith, and the uncircumcised through faith.

30  For One is the God who justifies circumcision by faith and uncircumcision through faith.

30  Because it is one God, who justifies the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision by the same faith.

31  Therefore do we nullify the law through faith? By no means! On the contrary, we uphold [the] law.

31  Do we then make the law of none effect through faith? God forbid: nay, we establish the law.

31  Are we then destroying the law through faith? Let it not be so! Instead, we are making the law stand.
