Galatians 2:15-21

CEB 15 We are born Jews—we're not Gentile sinners. NRS 15 We ourselves are Jews by birth and not Gentile sinners; CEB 16 However, we know that a person isn't made righteous by the works of the Law but rather through the faithfulness of Jesus Christ. We ourselves believed in Christ Jesus so that we could be made righteous by the faithfulness of Christ and not by the works of the Law—because no one will be made righteous by the works of the Law. NRS 16 yet we know that a person is justified not by the works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ. And we have come to believe in Christ Jesus, so that we might be justified by faith in Christ, and not by doing the works of the law, because no one will be justified by the works of the law. CEB 17 But if it is discovered that we ourselves are sinners while we are trying to be made righteous in Christ, then is Christ a servant of sin? Absolutely not! NRS 17 But if, in our effort to be justified in Christ, we ourselves have been found to be sinners, is Christ then a servant of sin? Certainly not! CEB 18 If I rebuild the very things that I tore down, I show that I myself am breaking the Law. NRS 18 But if I build up again the very things that I once tore down, then I demonstrate that I am a transgressor. CEB 19 I died to the Law through the Law, so that I could live for God. NRS 19 For through the law I died to the law, so that I might live to God. I have been crucified with Christ; CEB 20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. And the life that I now live in my body, I live by faith, indeed, by the faithfulness of God's Son, who loved me and gave himself for me. NRS 20 and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. CEB 21 I don't ignore the grace of God, because if we become righteous through the Law, then Christ died for no purpose. NRS 21 I do not nullify the grace of God; for if justification comes through the law, then Christ died for nothing.
