For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.”
Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for “The righteous shall live by faith.”
“Behold, his soul is puffed up; it is not upright within him, but the righteous shall live by his faith.
But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it—
and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith—
but my righteous one shall live by faith, and if he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him.”
What shall we say, then? That Gentiles who did not pursue righteousness have attained it, that is, a righteousness that is by faith;
What if some were unfaithful? Does their faithlessness nullify the faithfulness of God?
And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. By faith Noah, being warned by God concerning events as yet unseen, in reverent fear constructed an ark for the saving of his household. By this he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him.
