1 To the chief musician. A Psalm of David. The fool has said in his heart, There is no God! They acted corruptly; they did hatefully in deeds; there is none doing good.
7 He stretched out the north over the empty place; and He hung the earth on nothing.
10 declaring the end from the beginning, and from the past those things which were not done, saying, My purpose shall rise; and, I will do all My desire;
1 What then is the superiority of the Jew? Or what the profit of circumcision? 2 Much every way. For first, indeed, that they were entrusted with the oracles of God. 3 For what if some did not believe? Will their unbelief destroy the faith of God? 4 Let it not be! But let God be true, and every man a liar; even as it has been written, "That You should be justified in Your words, and will overcome in Your being judged." LXX-Psa. 50:6; MT-Psa. 51:4 5 But if our unrighteousness commends the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who lays on wrath? I speak according to man. 6 Let it not be! Otherwise, how will God judge the world? 7 For if in my lie the truth of God abounded to His glory, why am I yet judged as a sinner? 8 And not (as we are wrongly accused, and as some report us to say), Let us do bad things so that good things may come, the judgment of whom is just. 9 What then? Do we excel? Not at all! For we have charged both Jews and Greeks before, all with being under sin; 10 according as it has been written, "There is none righteous, not one!" 11 There is none that understands, there is "not one that seeks after God. 12 All turned away, they became worthless together, not one is doing goodness, not so much as one!" LXX-Psa. 13:1 -3 13 "Their throat is an opened grave;" "they used deceit with their tongues; 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 way; 17 and they did not know a way of peace; 18 there is no fear of God before their eyes." LXX-Psa. 5:10; 139:4; 9:28; Isa. 59:7, 8; Psa. 35:2; MT-Psa. 14:1 -3; 5:9; 140:3; 10:7; Isa. 59:7, 8; Psa. 36:1 19 But we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those within the Law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world be under judgment to God. 20 Because by works of law not one of all flesh will be justified before Him, for through law is full knowledge of sin. Psa. 143:2 21 But now a righteousness of God has been revealed apart from Law, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, 22 even the righteousness of God through faith of Jesus Christ toward all and upon all those believing; for there is no difference, 23 for all 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 showing forth of His righteousness through the passing by of the sins that had taken place before, in the forbearance of God, 26 for the showing forth of His righteousness in the present time, for His being just and justifying the one that is of the faith of Jesus. 27 Then where is the boasting? It was excluded. Through what law? Of works? No, but through a law of faith. 28 Then we conclude a man to be justified by faith without works of law. 29 Or is He the God of Jews only, and not also of the nations? Yes, of the nations also, 30 since it is one God who will justify circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith. 31 Then do we make law of no effect through faith? Let it not be! But we establish law.
1 What then shall we say our father Abraham to have found according to flesh? 2 For if Abraham was justified by works, he has a boast, but not with God. 3 For what does the Scripture say? "And Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him for righteousness." Gen. 15:6 4 Now to one working, the reward is not counted according to grace, but according to debt. 5 But to the one not working, but believing on Him justifying the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. 6 Even as also David says of the blessedness of the man to whom God counts righteousness apart from works: 7 "Blessed are those whose lawlessnesses are forgiven, and whose sins are covered; 8 blessed the man to whom the Lord will in no way charge sin." LXX-Psa. 31:1, 2; MT-Psa. 32:1, 2 9 Is this blessedness then on the circumcision, or also on the uncircumcision? For we say the faith "was counted to Abraham for righteousness." Gen. 15:6 10 How then was it counted? Being in circumcision, or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision! 11 And he received a sign of circumcision as a seal of the righteousness of faith while in uncircumcision, for him to be a father of those believing through uncircumcision, for righteousness to be counted to them also, 12 and a father of circumcision to those not of circumcision only, but also to those walking in the steps of the faith of our father Abraham during uncircumcision. 13 For the promise was not through law to Abraham, or to his seed, for him to be the heir of the world, but through a righteousness of faith. 14 For if those of Law are heirs, faith has been made of no effect, and the promise has been destroyed. 15 For the law works out wrath; for where no law is, neither is transgression. 16 On account of this, it is of faith, that it be according to grace, for the promise to be made sure to all the seed, not to that of the Law only, but also to that of the faith of Abraham, who is father of us all, 17 according as it has been written, "I have appointed you a father of many nations;" before God, whom he believed, the One making the dead live, and calling the things that are not as if they were. Gen. 17:5 18 He against hope believed in hope, for him to become a father of many nations, according to what has been said, "So shall your seed be." Gen. 15:5 19 And being about a hundred years old, not weakening in faith, he did not consider his body to have died already, nor yet the death of Sarah's womb, 20 and did not stagger by unbelief at the promise of God, but was empowered by faith, giving glory to God, 21 and being fully persuaded that what He has promised, He is also able to do. 22 Because of this, "it was also counted to him for righteousness." Gen. 15:6 23 But it was not written for him only, that it was counted to him, 24 but also on account of us, to whom it is about to be counted, to the ones believing on Him who has raised our Lord Jesus from the dead, 25 who was delivered because our offenses and was raised because of our justification.
1 Then being 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 we glory on the hope of the glory of God. 3 And not only so, but we glory also in afflictions, knowing that affliction works out patience, 4 and patience works out proven character; and proven character, hope. 5 And the hope does not put us to shame, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit given to us; 6 for we yet being without strength, in due time Christ died for ungodly ones. 7 For with difficulty one will die for a just one, (for perhaps one even dares to die for the sake of the good one), 8 but God commends His love to us in this, that we being yet sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, being justified now by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. 10 For if while being enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life; 11 and not only so, but also glorying in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we now received the reconciliation. 12 Because of this, even as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, so also death passed to all men, inasmuch as all sinned. 13 For sin was in the world until Law, but sin is not charged where there is no law; 14 but death reigned from Adam until Moses, even on those who had not sinned in the likeness of Adam's transgression, who is a type of the coming One . 15 But the free gift shall not be also like the offense. For if by the offense of the one the many died, much more the grace of God, and the gift in grace, which is of the one Man, Jesus Christ, did abound to the many. 16 And the gift shall not be as by one having sinned; for indeed the judgment was of one to condemnation, but the free gift is of many offenses to justification. 17 For if by the offense of the one death reigned through the one, much more those who are receiving the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness shall rule in life by the One, Jesus Christ. 18 So then, as through one offense it was toward all men to condemnation, so also by one accomplished righteousness toward all men to justification of life. 19 For as through the one man's disobedience the many were constituted sinners, so also through the obedience of the One the many shall be constituted righteous. 20 But Law came in beside, that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace much more abounded, 21 that as sin ruled in death, so also grace might rule through righteousness to everlasting life, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
1 What then shall we say? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? 2 Let it not be! We who died to sin, how shall we still live in it? 3 Or are you ignorant that all who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? 4 Therefore, we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, so also we should walk in newness of life. 5 For if we have been joined together in the likeness of His death, so also shall we be in the resurrection, 6 knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be nullified, so that we no longer serve sin. 7 For the one that died has been justified from sin. 8 But if we died with Christ, we believe that also we shall live with Him, 9 knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dies no more; death no longer lords it over Him. 10 For in that He died, He died to sin once for all; but in that He lives, He lives to God. 11 So also you count yourselves to be truly dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. 12 Then do not let sin rule in your mortal body, to obey it in its lusts. 13 Neither present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as one living from the dead, and your members instruments of righteousness to God. 14 For your sin shall not lord it 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? Let it not be! 16 Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves as slaves for obedience, you are slaves to whom you obey, whether of sin to death, or obedience to righteousness? 17 But thanks be to God that you were slaves of sin, but you obeyed from the heart the form of doctrine to which you were delivered. 18 And having been set free from sin, you were enslaved to righteousness. 19 I speak as a man on account of the weakness of your flesh. For as you presented your members as slaves to uncleanness and to lawless act unto lawless act, so now yield your members as slaves to righteousness unto sanctification. 20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free as to righteousness. 21 Therefore what fruit did you have then in the things over which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. 22 But now being set free from sin, and being enslaved to God, you have your fruit unto sanctification, and the end everlasting life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is everlasting life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
1 Or are you ignorant, brothers, (for I speak to those knowing law), that the law lords it over the man for as long a time as he lives? 2 For the married woman was bound by law to the living husband; but if the husband dies, she is set free from the law of the husband. 3 So then, if the husband is living, she will be called an adulteress if she becomes another man's. But if the husband dies, she is free from the law, so as for her not to be an adulteress by becoming another man's. 4 So that, my brothers, you also were made dead to the law through the body of Christ, for you to become Another's, to One raised from the dead, so that we may bear fruit to God. 5 For when we were in the flesh, the passions of sin were working in our members through the law for the bearing of fruit unto death. 6 But now we have been set free from the law, having died to that in which we were held, so as for us to serve in newness of spirit, and not in oldness of letter. 7 What shall we say then? Is the law sin? Let it not be! But I did not know sin except through law; for also I did not know lust except the law said, "You shall not lust." Ex. 20:17 8 But sin taking occasion through the commandment worked every lust in me; for apart from law, sin is dead. 9 And I was alive apart from law once, but the commandment came, and sin came alive, and I died. 10 And the commandment which was to life, this was found to be death to me; 11 for sin taking occasion through the commandment deceived me, and through it killed me . 12 So indeed the law is holy, and the commandment holy and just and good. 13 Then that which is good, has it become death to me? Let it not be! But sin, that it might appear to be sin, having worked out death to me through the good, in order that sin might become excessively sinful through the commandment. 14 For we know that the law is spiritual, and I am fleshly, having been sold under sin. 15 For what I work out, I do not know. For what I do not will, this I do. But what I hate, this I do. 16 But if I do what I do not will, I agree with the law, that it is good. 17 But now I no longer work it out, but the sin dwelling in me. 18 For I know that in me, that is in my flesh, dwells no good. For to will is present to me, but to work out the good I do not find. 19 For what good I desire, I do not do. But the evil I do not desire, this I do. 20 But if I do what I do not desire, it is no longer I working it out, but sin dwelling in me. 21 I find then the law, when I desire to do the right, that evil is present with me. 22 For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man; 23 but I see another law in my members having warred against the law of my mind, and taking me captive by the law of sin being in my members. 24 O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death? 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then I myself with the mind truly serve the law of God, and with the flesh the law of sin.
1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to flesh, but according to Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus set me free from the law of sin and of death. 3 For the law being powerless, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and concerning sin, condemned sin in the flesh, 4 So that the righteous demand of the law might be fulfilled in us, those not walking according to flesh, but according to Spirit. 5 For the ones that are according to flesh mind the things of the flesh. And the ones according to Spirit mind 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 because the mind of the flesh is enmity towards God; for it is not subject to the law of God, for neither can it be . 8 And those being in the flesh are not able to please God. 9 But you are not in flesh, but in Spirit, since the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if anyone has not the Spirit of Christ, this one 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 the One having raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, the One having raised the Christ from the dead will also make your mortal bodies live through the indwelling of His Spirit in you. 12 So, then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to flesh, 13 for if you live according to flesh, you are going to 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 a spirit of slavery again to fear, but you received a Spirit of adoption by which we cry, Abba! Father! 16 The Spirit Himself witnesses with our spirit that we are children of God. 17 And if children, also heirs; truly heirs of God, and joint-heirs of Christ, if indeed we suffer together, that we may also be glorified together. 18 For I calculate that the sufferings of the present time are not worthy to compare to the coming glory to be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly awaits the revelation of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was not willingly subjected to vanity, but through Him subjecting it, on hope; 21 that also the creation will be freed from the slavery of corruption to the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that all the creation groans together and travails together until now. 23 And not only so, but also we ourselves having the firstfruit of the Spirit, also we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly expecting adoption, the redemption of our body; 24 for we were saved by hope, but hope being seen is not hope; for what anyone sees, why does he also hope? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, through patience we wait eagerly. 26 And likewise the Spirit also joins in to help our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray as we ought, but the Spirit Himself pleads our case for us with groanings that cannot be uttered. 27 But the One searching the hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because He intercedes for the saints according to God. 28 But we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to purpose; 29 because whom He foreknew, He also predestinated to be conformed to the image of His Son, for Him to be the First-born among many brothers. 30 But whom He predestinated, these He also called; and whom He called, these He also justified; but whom He justified, these He also glorified. 31 What then shall we say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 32 Truly He who did not spare His own Son, but gave Him up for us all, how will He not freely give us all things with Him? 33 Who will bring any charge against God's elect? God is the One justifying! 34 Who is he condemning? It is Christ who has died, but rather also is raised, who also is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us. 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 Even as it has been written, "For Your sake we are killed all the day; we are counted as sheep of slaughter." Psa. 44:22 37 But in all these things we more than conquer through Him loving us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus, our Lord.
1 I tell the truth in Christ, I do not lie, my conscience bearing witness with me in the Holy Spirit, 2 that my grief is great, and a never ceasing pain is in my heart, 3 for I myself was wishing to be a curse from Christ on behalf of my brothers, my kinsmen according to flesh, 4 who are Israelites, whose are the adoption and the glory, and the covenants, and the Lawgiving, and the service, and the promises; 5 whose are the fathers, and from whom is the Christ according to flesh, He being God over all, blessed forever. Amen. 6 Not, however, that God's word has failed. For not all those of Israel are Israel, 7 nor because they are Abraham's seed are all children, but "In Isaac a Seed shall be called to you." Gen. 21:12 8 That is: Not the children of flesh are children of God, but the children of the promise are counted for a seed. 9 For the word of promise is this, According to this time I will come, and a son will be to Sarah. Gen. 18:10 10 And not only so, but also Rebekah conceiving of one, our father Isaac, 11 for the children not yet being born, nor having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of the One calling, 12 it was said to her, "The greater shall serve the lesser;" Gen. 25:23 13 even as it has been written, "I loved Jacob, and I hated Esau." Mal. 1:2, 3 14 What then shall we say? Is there not unrighteousness with God? Let it not be! 15 For He said to Moses, "I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will pity whomever I will pity." Ex. 33:19 16 So, then, it is not of the one willing, nor of the one running, but of the One showing mercy, of God. 17 For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, "For this very thing I raised you up, so that I might show forth My power in you, and so that My name might be publicized in all the earth." Ex. 9:16 18 So, then, to whom He desires, He shows mercy. And to whom He desires, He hardens. 19 You will then say to me, Why does He yet find fault? For who has resisted His will? 20 Yes, rather, O man, who are you answering against God? Shall the thing formed say to the One forming it, Why did You make me like this? Isa. 29:16 21 Or does not the potter have authority over the clay, out of the one lump to make one vessel to honor, and one to dishonor? Jer. 18:6 22 But if God, desiring to show forth wrath, and to make His power known, endured in much long-suffering vessels of wrath having been fitted out for destruction, 23 and that He make known the riches of His glory on vessels of mercy which He before prepared for glory, 24 whom He also called, not only us, of Jews, but also out of nations. 25 As also He says in Hosea, I will call those not My people, My people! And those not beloved, Beloved! Hosea 2:23 26 "And it shall be, in the place where it was said to them, You are not My people, there they will be called, Sons of the living God." LXX-Hos. 2:1; MT-Hos. 2:23 27 But Isaiah cries on behalf of Israel, "If the number of the sons of Israel be as the sand of the sea, the remnant will be saved." 28 For He is bringing the matter to an end, and having been cut short "in righteousness," "because the Lord" "will do a thing cut short" "on the earth." Isa. 10:22, 23 29 And as Isaiah has said before, "Except the Lord of hosts left a seed to us, we would have become as Sodom, and we would have become as Gomorrah." Isa. 1:9 30 What then shall we say? That the nations not following after righteousness have taken on righteousness, but a righteousness of faith; 31 but Israel following after a law of righteousness did not arrive at a law of righteousness? 32 Why? Because it was not of faith, but as of works of Law. For they stumbled at the Stone-of-stumbling, 33 as it has been written, "Behold, I place in" "Zion a Stone-of-stumbling," "and a Rock-of-offense," "and everyone believing on Him will not be put to shame." LXX and MT-Isa. 28:16; MT-Isa. 8:14
10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with rushing sound, and having burned the elements will be dissolved, and earth and the works in it will be burned up.
4 The giants were in the earth in those days, and even afterwards when the sons of God came into the daughters of men, and they bore to them; they were heroes which existed from ancient time, the men of name.
4 For a thousand years in Your eyes are as yesterday when it passes, and as a watch in the night.
14 And God said, Let luminaries be in the expanse of the heavens, to divide between the day and the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years.
5 Then Jehovah will create a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night, over all the site of Mount Zion, and over her assemblies; for on all the glory will be a canopy.
26 And God said, let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creepers creeping on the earth.
2 and the earth being without form and empty, and darkness on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God moving gently on the face of the waters,
22 He who sits on the circle of the earth, even its dwellers are like grasshoppers; He who stretches the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to live in;
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth; 2 and the earth being without form and empty, and darkness on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God moving gently on the face of the waters, 3 then God said, Let light be! And there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good, and God separated between the light and darkness. 5 And God called the light, Day. And He called the darkness, Night. And there was evening, and there was morning the first day. 6 And God said, Let an expanse be in the midst of the waters, and let it divide between the waters and the waters. 7 And God made the expanse, and He separated between the waters which were under the expanse and the waters which were above the expanse. And it was so. 8 And God called the expanse, Heavens. And there was evening, and there was morning the second day. 9 And God said, Let the waters under the heavens be collected to one place, and let the dry land appear. And it was so. 10 And God called the dry land, Earth. And He called the collection of the waters, Seas. And God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, Let the earth sprout tender sprouts, the plant seeding seed, the fruit tree producing fruit according to its kind, whichever seed is in it on the earth. And it was so. 12 And the earth bore tender sprouts, the plant seeding seed according to its kind, and the fruit tree producing fruit according to its kind, whichever seed is in it. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening, and there was morning the third day. 14 And God said, Let luminaries be in the expanse of the heavens, to divide between the day and the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years. 15 And let them be for luminaries in the expanse of the heavens, to give light on the earth. And it was so. 16 And God made the two great luminaries: the great luminary to rule the day, and the small luminary and the stars to rule the night. 17 And God set them in the expanse of the heavens, to give light on the earth, 18 and to rule over the day and over the 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 swarm with swarmers having a soul of life; and let the birds fly over the earth, on the face of the expanse of the heavens. 21 And God created the great sea animals, and all that creeps, having a living soul, which swarmed the waters, according to its kind; and every bird with wing according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas; and let the birds multiply in the earth. 23 And there was evening, and there was morning the fifth day. 24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the soul of life according to its kind: cattle, and creepers, and its beasts of the earth, according to its kind. And it was so. 25 And God made the beasts of the earth according to its kind, and cattle according to its kind, and all creepers of the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. 26 And God said, let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creepers creeping on the earth. 27 And God created the man in His own image; in the image of God He created him. He created them male and female. 28 And God blessed them; and God said to them, Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over the fish of the sea, and over birds of the heavens, and over all beasts creeping on the earth. 29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every plant seeding seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree in which is the fruit of a tree seeding seed; it shall be food for you. 30 And to every beast of the earth, and to all birds of the heavens, and to every creeper on the earth which has in it a living soul, every green plant is for food. And it was so. 31 And God saw everything that He had made and behold, it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning the sixth day.
1 To the chief musician. A Psalm of David. The heavens are recording the glory of God, and the expanse proclaim His handiwork.
