The Righteous Shall Live by Faith
For v I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for w it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, x for the Jew first and also for the Greek.
For y in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, z "The just shall live by faith."

I have proclaimed the good news of righteousness In the great assembly; Indeed, I do not restrain my lips, O LORD, You Yourself know.
I have not hidden Your righteousness within my heart; I have declared Your faithfulness and Your salvation; I have not concealed Your lovingkindness and Your truth From the great assembly.
1 Corinthians 1:18
For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
1 Corinthians 1:24
But to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
For my eyes have seen Your salvation
"To you first, God, having raised up His Servant Jesus, sent Him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from your iniquities."
Tribulation and anguish, on every soul of man who does evil, of the Jew first and also of the Greek.
But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets.
What shall we say then? That Gentiles, who did not pursue righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness of faith.
And be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith.
Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith.
But that no one is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, for "the just shall live by faith.
Now the just shall live by faith; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him.
