1 For the end, A Psalm of David. The fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They have corrupted themselves, and have become abominable in their devices; there is none that does good, there is not so much as one.
7 He stretches out the north wind upon nothing, and He hangs the earth upon nothing;
10 declaring beforehand the latter events before they come to pass, and they are accomplished together; and I said, all My counsel shall stand, and I will do all things that I have planned;
1 What then is the superiority of the Jew, or what is the profit of circumcision? 2 Much in every way! First of all, that they were entrusted with the oracles of God. 3 For what if some did not believe? Surely their unbelief will not nullify the faithfulness of God? 4 Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar, just as it is written: "That You may be justified in Your words, and You may overcome when You are judged." 5 But if our unrighteousness demonstrates the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Surely God, the One inflicting wrath is not unrighteous, is He? (I speak as a man.) 6 Certainly not! For otherwise how shall God judge the world? 7 For if by my lie the truth of God has abounded to His glory, why am I also still judged as a sinner? 8 And why not say, "Let us do evil so that good may come"?--just as we are slandered, and just as some affirm that we say. The judgment of whom is just. 9 What then? Are we any better? Not at all. For we previously charged both Jews and Greeks that they are all under sin. 10 Just as it is written: "There is none righteous, no not one, 11 There is none who understands; there is none who seeks God. 12 All have turned aside; together they became unprofitable; there is not one doing kindness, there is not so much as one." 13 "Their throat is an opened grave; with their tongues they deceived"; " the poison of asps is under their lips"; 14 "Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness. 15 Their feet are swift to shed blood; 16 Ruin and misery are in their ways; 17 And the way of peace they did not know. 18 There is no fear of God before their eyes." 19 Now we know that as many things as the law says, it speaks to those under the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. 20 Therefore by works of the law no flesh shall be justified in His sight, for through the law comes the knowledge of sin. 21 But now the righteousness of God apart from the law has been revealed, being witnessed to by the Law and the Prophets, 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; 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption in Christ Jesus, 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 occurred, in the forbearance of God, 26 for a demonstration of His righteousness in the present time, that He might be just and the justifier of he who is of the faith of Jesus. 27 Where then is the boasting? It is excluded. Through what law? Of works? No, but through the law of faith. 28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from 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, also of Gentiles, 30 since there is one God who will justify the circumcision by faith, and the uncircumcised through faith. 31 Therefore do we nullify the law through faith? Certainly not! On the contrary, we establish the law.
1 What then shall we say that Abraham our father has found according to the flesh? 2 For if Abraham was justified by works, he has grounds for boasting, but not before God. 3 For what does the Scripture say? "Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness." 4 Now to him who works, the reward is not accounted according to grace but according to debt. 5 But to him who does not work but believes on Him that justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness, 6 just as David also speaks of the blessing of the man to whom God accounts righteousness apart from works: 7 "Blessed are they whose lawless deeds have been forgiven, and whose sins were covered over; 8 Blessed is the man to whom the LORD shall by no means impute sin." 9 Does this blessing then come upon the circumcision, or also upon the uncircumcised? For we say that faith was accounted to Abraham for righteousness. 10 How then was it accounted? While he was circumcised, or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision. 11 And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had while in uncircumcision, so that he should be the father of all those that believe, although uncircumcised, so that righteousness should also be imputed to them, 12 and the father of circumcision to those not only of circumcision, but also to those following in the steps of the faith which our father Abraham had while in uncircumcision. 13 For the promise that he should be heir of the world was not to Abraham or to his seed through the law, but through the righteousness of faith. 14 For if those who are of the law are heirs, faith is made void and the promise has been nullified, 15 because the law produces wrath; for where there is no law neither is there transgression. 16 Therefore it is of faith that it may be according to grace, so that the promise might be sure to all the seed, not only to those of the law, but also to those of the faith of Abraham, who is the father of us all, 17 (just as it is written, "I have appointed you a father of many nations") before God, whom he believed, the One who gives life to the dead and calls those things which are not as though they were; 18 who, contrary to hope, on hope believed, so that he should become a father of many nations, according to what was spoken, "So shall your descendants be." 19 And not weakening in faith, he did not consider his own body, already having been worn out (being about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah's womb, 20 he did not waver at the promise of God in unbelief, but was empowered by faith, giving glory to God, 21 and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to do. 22 And therefore "it was accounted to him for righteousness." 23 Now it was not written for his sake alone that it was accounted to him, 24 but for us also, to whom it was going to be imputed, those believing on Him who raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead, 25 who was delivered up for our transgressions, and was raised for our justification.
1 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom also we have had access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only that, but we also rejoice in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces endurance; 4 and endurance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put to shame, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us. 6 For when we were weak, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. 7 For scarcely on behalf of a righteous man will anyone die; yet on behalf of the good, perhaps someone might even dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, having been justified now by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. 10 For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. 11 And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom now we received the reconciliation. 12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death passed to all men, because all sinned-- 13 (For until the law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who did not sin according to the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come. 15 But the free gift is not like the offense. For if by the offense of one man many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to the many. 16 And the gift is not as by one having sinned. For the judgment which came from one offense resulted in condemnation, but the free gift from many offenses resulted in justification. 17 For if by the offense of the one man death reigned through the one man, much more those receiving the abundance of the grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.) 18 Therefore, as through one man's offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man's righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life. 19 For through the disobedience of the one man the many were constituted sinners, so also through the obedience of the One many shall be constituted righteous. 20 But the law came in alongside, so that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace superabounded, 21 so that just as sin reigned in death, so also grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? 2 Certainly not! We died to sin--How shall we live any longer in it? 3 Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? 4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, so that just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we also should walk in newness of life. 5 For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall be in the likeness of His resurrection; 6 knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, so that the body of sin may be done away with, that we should no longer serve sin. 7 For he who has died has been justified from sin. 8 But if we died with Christ, we believe that also we should live together with Him, 9 knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, no longer dies. Death is no longer master over Him. 10 For what death He died, He died to sin once for all; but what life He lives, He lives to God. 11 Likewise you also, consider yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. 12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts, 13 nor present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. 14 For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace. 15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not! 16 Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves as obedient slaves, you are slaves to whom you obey, whether of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness? 17 But thanks be to God, that though you used to be slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from your heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. 18 And having been freed from sin, you became enslaved to righteousness. 19 I speak in human terms on account of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves to uncleanness, and to lawlessness resulting in more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness resulting in sanctification. 20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. 21 So what fruit did you have then of which things you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. 22 But now having been freed from sin, and having become enslaved to God, you have your fruit resulting in sanctification, and the end, eternal life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
1 Or do you not know, brothers (for I speak to those knowing the law), that the law rules over a man as long as he lives? 2 For the woman who is under a man has been bound by law to the living husband. But if the husband should die, she is released from the law of the husband. 3 So then, while the husband is living, she will be called an adulteress if she becomes married to a different husband; but if her husband should die, she is free from the law, so that she is not an adulteress, having become married to a different husband. 4 Therefore, my brothers, you also were put to death to the law through the body of Christ, that you may be married to another--to Him who was raised from the dead, so that we might bear fruit to God. 5 For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions aroused through the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death. 6 But now we were released from the law, having died in that to which we were held fast, so that we should serve as slaves in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter. 7 What shall we say then? Is the law sin? Certainly not! On the contrary, I would not have known sin except through the law. For I would not have known lust unless the law had said, "You shall not covet." 8 But sin, taking opportunity through the commandment, produced in me every kind of lust. For apart from the law sin was dead. 9 For I was alive apart from the law once, but when the commandment came, sin revived, but I died. 10 And the commandment, which was to bring life, I found to bring death. 11 For sin, taking opportunity by the commandment, deceived me, and by it, killed me. 12 Therefore the law indeed is holy, and the commandment holy and righteous and good. 13 Then has that which is good become death to me? Certainly not! But sin, that it might appear sin, was producing death in me through that which is good, so that sin through the commandment might become exceedingly sinful. 14 For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal, having been sold under sin. 15 For what I am doing, I do not know. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, this I do. 16 But if I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good. 17 But now it is no longer I who am doing it, but the sin dwelling in me. 18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to do the good, I do not find. 19 For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, this I practice. 20 But if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who am doing it, but the sin dwelling in me. 21 Therefore I find this law, that when I wish to do the right thing, that evil is present with me. 22 For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. 23 But I see a different law in my members, waging war with the law of my mind, and capturing me by the law of sin which is in my members. 24 O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from this body of death? 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself with the mind serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin.
1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and of death. 3 For what was impossible for the law to do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and concerning sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, 4 so that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. 5 For those who are fleshly set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. 6 For the mind of the flesh is death, but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace. 7 Therefore the mind of the flesh is enmity against God; for it does not submit to the law of God, nor indeed can it. 8 And those that are in the flesh cannot please God. 9 But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. 10 But if Christ is in you, the body indeed is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit indwelling in you. 12 Therefore, brothers, we are debtors--not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. 13 For if you live according to the flesh you shall die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the practices of the body, you will live. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. 15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again unto fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba, Father." 16 The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God. 17 And if children, then heirs--heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer together, so that we may also be glorified together. 18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the coming glory to be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly awaits the unveiling of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but on account of Him who subjected it in hope; 21 because even the creation itself shall be freed from the slavery of corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that all the creation groans together and labors in birth together until now. 23 And not only that, but also we ourselves having the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting adoption, the redemption of our body. 24 For by this hope we were saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly await it with endurance. 26 Likewise the Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with inexpressible groanings. 27 But He that searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes on behalf of the saints according to the will of God. 28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. 29 Because whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brothers. 30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; and whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified. 31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but gave Him up on behalf of us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall bring an accusation against God's elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he that condemns? Christ is the One having died, but rather also having been raised, who is even at the right hand of God, who also intercedes on our behalf. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 36 Just as it is written: "For Your sake we are put to death the whole day long; we are accounted as sheep for slaughter." 37 But in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
1 I am speaking truth in Christ, I am not lying, my conscience witnessing with me in the Holy Spirit, 2 that I have great sorrow and unceasing pain in my heart. 3 For I could wish that I myself to be accursed from Christ on behalf of my brothers, my countrymen according to the flesh, 4 who are Israelites, of whom are the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the law-giving, and the worship, and the promises; 5 of whom are the fathers and from whom Christ came, according to the flesh, He who is God over all, blessed forever. Amen. 6 But it is not as though the word of God has failed. For not all those of Israel are of Israel, 7 nor are they all children because they are the seed of Abraham; but, "In Isaac your seed shall be called." 8 That is, those who are the children of the flesh, are not the children of God; but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. 9 For this is the word of promise: "At this time I will come and Sarah shall have a son." 10 And not only this, but also Rebecca having conception from one man, our father Isaac; 11 for the children not yet being born, nor having done anything good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might abide, not of works but of Him who calls, 12 it was said to her, "The older shall serve the younger." 13 As it is written, "Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated." 14 What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? Absolutely not! 15 For He says to Moses, "I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion." 16 So then it is not of him that wills, nor of him that runs, but of God who shows mercy. 17 For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, "For this very thing I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be proclaimed in all the earth." 18 So then He has mercy on whom He wills, and whom He wills He hardens. 19 You will say to me then, "Why does He still find fault? For who has ever resisted His will?" 20 But indeed, O man, who are you to be answering back against God? Surely the thing formed will not say to him who formed it, "Why did you made me like this?" 21 Or does not the potter have authority over the clay, from the same lump to make one vessel for honor and the other for dishonor? 22 But what if God, wanting to show His wrath and to make known His power, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath having been prepared for destruction, 23 and so that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which He had prepared beforehand for glory, 24 even us whom He called, not only of the Jews, but also of the Gentiles? 25 As also in Hosea He says: "I will call those My people who were not My people, and her beloved, who was not beloved." 26 "And it shall be in the place where it was said to them, 'You are not My people,' there they shall be called sons of the living God." 27 Isaiah also cries out concerning Israel: "If the number of the sons of Israel were as the sand of the sea, the remnant shall be saved; 28 For He is finishing and cutting short an account in righteousness, because the LORD will make a short account upon the earth." 29 And just as Isaiah predicted: "Unless the LORD of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we would have become like Sodom, and like Gomorrah we would have been compared." 30 What shall we say then? That Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness of faith; 31 but Israel, pursuing a law of righteousness, did not attain to the law of righteousness. 32 Why? Because they did not seek it by faith, but as it were, by the works of the law. For they stumbled the stone of stumbling. 33 Just as it is written: "Behold, I lay in Zion a stone of stumbling and rock of offense, and everyone believing on Him will not be put to shame."
10 But the day of the Lord shall come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens shall pass away with a rushing noise, and the elements, burning with heat, shall be dissolved, both the earth and the works that are in it shall be burned up.
4 (6:5) Now the giants were upon the earth in those days; and after that when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, they bore children to them, those were the giants of old, the men of renown.
4 For a thousand years in Your sight are like the yesterday which is past, and as a watch in the night.
14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, to divide between day and night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and for years.
5 And He shall come, and it shall be with regard to every place in Mount Zion, yea, all the region round about it shall a cloud overshadow by day, and there shall be as it were the smoke and light of fire burning by night; and upon all the glory shall be a defense.
26 And God said, Let Us make man according to Our image and likeness, and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the flying creatures of heaven, and over the cattle and all the earth, and over all the reptiles that creep on the earth.
2 But the earth was unsightly and unfurnished, and darkness was over the deep, and the Spirit of God moved over the water.
22 It is He that comprehends the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants in it are as grasshoppers; He that set up the heaven as a chamber, and stretched it out as a tent to dwell in;
1 In the beginning God made the heaven and the earth. 2 But the earth was unsightly and unfurnished, and darkness was over the deep, and the Spirit of God moved over the water. 3 And God said, Let there be light, and there was light. 4 And God saw the light that it was good, and God divided between the light and the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night, and there was evening and there was morning, the first day. 6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the water, and let it be a division between water and water, and it was so. 7 And God made the firmament, and God divided between the water which was under the firmament and the water which was above the firmament. 8 And God called the firmament Heaven, and God saw that it was good, and there was evening and there was morning, the second day. 9 And God said, Let the water which is under the heaven be collected into one place, and let the dry land appear, and it was so. And the water which was under the heaven was collected into its places, and the dry land appeared. 10 And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering of the waters He called Seas; and God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the herb of grass bearing seed according to its kind and according to its likeness, and the fruit tree bearing fruit whose seed is in it, according to its kind on the earth, and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth the herb of grass-bearing seed according to its kind and according to its likeness, and the fruit tree bearing fruit whose seed is in it, according to its kind on the earth; and God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening and there was morning, the third day. 14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, to divide between day and night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and for years. 15 And let them be for light in the firmament of the heaven, so as to shine upon the earth, and it was so. 16 And God made two great lights, the greater light for regulating the day, and the lesser light for regulating the night; the stars also. 17 And God placed them in the firmament of the heaven, so as to shine upon the earth, 18 and to regulate day and night, and to divide between the light and the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening and there was morning, the fourth day. 20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth reptiles having life, and winged creatures flying above the earth in the firmament of heaven, and it was so. 21 And God made great whales, and every living reptile, which the waters brought forth according to their kinds, and every creature that flies with wings according to its kind; and God saw that they were good. 22 And God blessed them saying, Increase and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let the creatures that fly be multiplied on the earth. 23 And there was evening and there was morning, the fifth day. 24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind, cattle and reptiles and wild beasts of the earth according to their kind, and it was so. 25 And God made the wild beasts of the earth according to their kind, and cattle according to their kind, and all the reptiles of the earth according to their kind, and God saw that they were good. 26 And God said, Let Us make man according to Our image and likeness, and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the flying creatures of heaven, and over the cattle and all the earth, and over all the reptiles that creep on the earth. 27 And God made man, according to the image of God He made him, male and female He made them. 28 And God blessed them, saying, Increase and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the seas and flying creatures of heaven, and all the cattle and all the earth, and all the reptiles that creep on the earth. 29 And God said, Behold, I have given to you every seed-bearing herb sowing seed which is upon all the earth, and every tree which has in itself the fruit of seed that is sown, to you it shall be for food. 30 And to all the wild beasts of the earth, and to all the flying creatures of heaven, and to every reptile creeping on the earth, which has in itself the breath of life, even every green plant for food; and it was so. 31 And God saw all the things that He had made, and behold, they were very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day
1 For the end, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims the work of His hands.
