Did not arrive at that law
(ei nomon ouk epqasen
). First aorist active indicative of pqanw
, old verb to anticipate ( 1 Thessalonians 4:15
), now just to arrive as here and 2 Corinthians 10:14
. The word "that" is not in the Greek. Legal righteousness Israel failed to reach, because to do that one had to keep perfectly all the law.
