Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
27 What reason, then, is there for pride? It is shut out. By what sort of law? of works? No, but by a law of faith. 27 Where, then, is boasting? It is excluded. On what principle? On that of observing the law? No, but on that of faith.
28 For this reason, then, a man may get righteousness by faith without the works of the law. 28 For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from observing the law.
29 Or is God the God of Jews only? is he not in the same way the God of Gentiles? Yes, of Gentiles: 29 Is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles too? Yes, of Gentiles too,
30 If God is one; and he will give righteousness because of faith to those who have circumcision, and through faith to those who have not circumcision. 30 since there is only one God, who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through that same faith.
31 Do we, then, through faith make the law of no effect? in no way: but we make it clear that the law is important. 31 Do we, then, nullify the law by this faith? Not at all! Rather, we uphold the law.
