1Then what becomes of our boasting? It is excluded. By what kind of law? By a law of works? No, but by the law of faith.
For we hold that one is justified by faith 2apart from works of the law.
Or 3is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles also? Yes, of Gentiles also,
since 4God is one--who will justify the circumcised by faith and 5the uncircumcised through faith.
Do we then overthrow the law by this faith? By no means! On the contrary, we uphold the law.
