But now a righteousness coming from God has been brought to light apart from any Law, both Law and Prophets bearing witness to it--
a righteousness coming from God, which depends on faith in Jesus Christ and extends to all who believe. No distinction is made;
for all alike have sinned, and all consciously come short of the glory of God,
gaining acquittal from guilt by His free unpurchased grace through the deliverance which is found in Christ Jesus.
He it is whom God put forward as a Mercy-seat, rendered efficacious through faith in His blood, in order to demonstrate His righteousness-- because of the passing over, in God's forbearance, of the sins previously committed--
with a view to demonstrating, at the present time, His righteousness, that He may be shown to be righteous Himself, and the giver of righteousness to those who believe in Jesus.
