But now apart from the law the righteousness of
God (although it is attested by the law and the prophets) has been disclosed
the righteousness of God through the faithfulness of Jesus Christ for all who be

could be joined to another, to the one who was raised from the dead, to bear fruit to
God. For when we were in the flesh, the sinful desires, aroused by the law, were
death. For God achieved what the law could not do because it was weakened through
the flesh. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful fesh and concerning sin, he
condemned sin in the flesh, so that the righteous requirement of the law may be
on behalf of the saints according to Gods will.
