What advantage then hath the Jew (Yehudi)? Or what profit is there of circumcision?
2 Much every way; chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) .
3 For what if some did not believe? Shall their unbelief make the faith of יהוה (YHWH) without effect?
4 God (Elohim) forbid; yea, let יהוה (YHWH) be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, ‘That You mightest be justified in Your sayings, and mightest overcome when You are judged.’ – Psa.51:4
5 But if our unrighteousness commends the righteousness of God (Elohim), what shall we say? Is God (Elohim) unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man)
6 God (Elohim) forbid; for then how shall יהוה (YHWH) judge the world?
7 For if the truth of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) hath more abounded through my lie unto His glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner?
8 And not rather, (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) “Let us do evil, that good may come”? Their damnation is just.
9 What then? Are we better than they? No, in no wise; for we have before proved both Jews (Yehudim) and Gentiles (Goyim), that they are all under sin;
10 As it is written: “There is none righteous, no, not one.
11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)).
12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. – Psa. 14:1–3, 53:1–3
13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips; – Psa. 5:9, Psa. 140:3
14 Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.” – Psa. 10:7
15 Their feet are swift to shed blood;
16 Destruction and misery are in their ways;
17 And the way of peace have they not known: – Isa. 59:7–8, Prov. 1:16
18 There is no fear of God (Elohim) before their eyes.” – Psa. 36:1
19 Now we know that what things soever the law (torah) saith, it saith to them who are under the law (torah); that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)),.
20 Therefore by the deeds of the law (torah); there shall no flesh be justified in His sight; for by the law (torah) is the knowledge of sin. – Psa. 143:2
21 But now the righteousness of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH)) apart from the B28alaw (torah) is manifested, being witnessed by the B28dTorah and the Prophets (Nevi’im);
22 Even the righteousness of God (Elohim) which is by faith of YHWH haMashiach unto all and upon all them that believe; for there is no difference;
23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God (Elohim, יהוה (YHWH));
24 Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in the Messiah (haMashiach) YHWH;
25 Whom יהוה (YHWH) 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 יהוה (YHWH);
26 To declare, I say, at this time His righteousness; that He might be just, and the justifier of him who believeth in YHWH.
27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what Torah? Of works? Nay; but by the Torah of faith.
28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law (torah).
29 Is He the God (Elohim) of the Jews (Yehudim) only? Is He not also of the Gentiles (Goyim)? Yes, of the Gentiles (Goyim) also;
30 Seeing it is one God (Elohim), who shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.
31 Do we then make void the law (torah) through faith? God (Elohim) forbid; yea, we establish the law (torah).
