But now apart from the Law the righteousness of God has been manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets, (Romans 3:21)

even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe; for there is no distinction; (Romans 3:22)

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, (Romans 3:23)

being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; (Romans 3:24)

whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness, because in the forbearance of God He passed over the sins previously committed; (Romans 3:25)

for the demonstration, I say, of His righteousness at the present time, so that He would be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus. (Romans 3:26)
