2 Corinthians 5:21
For he hath made him [to be] sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, [even] in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.)
But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down [from above]:)
How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?
2 Corinthians 5:19
To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
1 Corinthians 6:11
And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
1 Corinthians 1:30
But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
But to Israel he saith, All day long I have stretched forth my hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.
But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not; I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me.
But I say, Did not Israel know? First Moses saith, I will provoke you to jealousy by [them that are] no people, [and] by a foolish nation I will anger you.
But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.
So then faith [cometh] by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
For Moses describeth the righteousness which is of the law, That the man which doeth those things shall live by them.
For Christ [is] the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:
I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.
Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but [how] to perform that which is good I find not.
[There is] therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
What shall we then say to these things? If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us?
For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.
For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.
Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
Wherefore? Because [they sought it] not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone;
But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness.
What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith.
Who [is] he that condemneth? [It is] Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? [It is] God that justifieth.
Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.
For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.
Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.
So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.
Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.
But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him [that was born] after the Spirit, even so [it is] now.
Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.
Yea doubtless, and I count all things [but] loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them [but] dung, that I may win Christ,
And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.
Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?
Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?
But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.
By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.
That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
For it is written, Rejoice, [thou] barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.
But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.
Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.
I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness [come] by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
For I through the law am dead to the law, that I might live unto God.
For if I build again the things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor.
But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, [is] therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid.
Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified.
We [who are] Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles,
And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, [saying], In thee shall all nations be blessed.
So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.
But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, [it is] evident: for, The just shall live by faith.
For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.
Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.
But he [who was] of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman [was] by promise.
For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.
Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?
Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster [to bring us] unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.
[Is] the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.
But when I saw that they walked not uprightly according to the truth of the gospel, I said unto Peter before [them] all, If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of Gentiles, and not as do the Jews, why compellest thou the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?
For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, [was] not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.
Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
To declare, [I say], at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
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;
Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
Even the righteousness of God [which is] by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

Seeing [it is] one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.
For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.
Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.
And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which [he had] being [yet] uncircumcised.
And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which [he had yet] being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also:
How was it then reckoned? when he was in circumcision, or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision.
[Cometh] this blessedness then upon the circumcision [only], or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness.
Blessed [is] the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.
[Saying], Blessed [are] they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.
Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works,
But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

My righteousness [is] near; my salvation is gone forth, and mine arms shall judge the people; the isles shall wait upon me, and on mine arm shall they trust.
Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.

Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation [is] near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.

He shall see of the travail of his soul, [and] shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.
If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that [it is] good.
Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, [even] to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
So then if, while [her] husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.
For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to [her] husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of [her] husband.
Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?
But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.
Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.
But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not [in] the oldness of the letter.
What shall we say then? [Is] the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet.
For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.
For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.
Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.
Wherefore the law [is] holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.
For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew [me].
And the commandment, which [was ordained] to life, I found [to be] unto death.
For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died.
But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. For without the law sin [was] dead.
Therefore as by the offence of one [judgment came] upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one [the free gift came] upon all men unto justification of life.
For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.
And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.

Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.
(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, [even] God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
Therefore [it is] of faith, that [it might be] by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,
Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, [there is] no transgression.
Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him;
But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead;
Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.
And not as [it was] by one that sinned, [so is] the gift: for the judgment [was] by one to condemnation, but the free gift [is] of many offences unto justification.
But not as the offence, so also [is] the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, [which is] by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.
Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.
(For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
And not only [so], but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
For if they which are of the law [be] heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect:
