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 YAH.
For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of ELOHIYM without effect?
Forbid: yea, let ELOHIYM 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 ELOHIYM, what shall we say? Is EL unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man)
Forbid: for then how shall ELOHIYM judge the world?
For if the truth of ELOHIYM 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;
As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after ELOHIYM.
They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:
Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:
Their feet are swift to shed blood:
Destruction and misery are in their ways:
And the way of peace have they not known:
There is no fear of YHVH before their eyes.
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 ELOHIYM.
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 ELOHIYM without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
Even the righteousness of ELOHIYM which is by faith of YAHSHUA MASHIYACH unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of ELOHIYM;
Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in MASHIYACH YAHSHUA:
Whom ELOHIYM 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 EL;
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 EL of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also:
Seeing it is one EL, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.
Do we then make void the law through faith? Forbid: yea, we establish the law.
