In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace
that He lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.
so that we who had already put our hope in the Messiah might bring praise to His glory.
He is the down payment of our inheritance, for the redemption of the possession, to the praise of His glory.
[I pray] that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened so you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the glorious riches of His inheritance among the saints,
so that in the coming ages He might display the immeasurable riches of His grace in [His] kindness to us in Christ Jesus.
This is so that God's multi-faceted wisdom may now be made known through the church to the rulers and authorities in the heavens.
This is according to the purpose of the ages, which He made in the Messiah, Jesus our Lord,
The LORD has prepared everything for His purpose-- even the wicked for the day of disaster.
The people I formed for Myself will declare My praise.
to provide for those who mourn in Zion; to give them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, festive oil instead of mourning, and splendid clothes instead of despair. And they will be called righteous trees, planted by the LORD, to glorify Him.
For as the earth brings forth its growth, and as a garden enables what is sown to spring up, so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring up before all the nations.
This city will bear on My behalf a name of joy, praise, and glory before all the nations of the earth, who will hear of all the good I will do for them. They will tremble with awe because of all the good and all the peace I will bring about for them.
Glory to God in the highest heaven, and peace on earth to people He favors!
And [what if] He did this to make known the riches of His glory on objects of mercy that He prepared beforehand for glory--
on us whom He also called, not only from the Jews but also from the Gentiles?
For all this is because of you, so that grace, extended through more and more people, may cause thanksgiving to overflow to God's glory.
filled with the fruit of righteousness that [comes] through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.
And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
taking vengeance with flaming fire on those who don't know God and on those who don't obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.
These will pay the penalty of everlasting destruction, away from the Lord's presence and from His glorious strength,
in that day when He comes to be glorified by His saints and to be admired by all those who have believed, because our testimony among you was believed.
and the grace of our Lord overflowed, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.
This saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance: "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners"-- and I am the worst of them.
But I received mercy because of this, so that in me, the worst [of them], Christ Jesus might demonstrate the utmost patience as an example to those who would believe in Him for eternal life.
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for His possession, so that you may proclaim the praises of the One who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
If anyone speaks, [his speech should be] like the oracles of God; if anyone serves, [his service should be] from the strength God provides, so that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To Him belong the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen.
It will be said to Me: Only in the LORD is righteousness and strength." All who are incensed against Him will come to Him and be put to shame.
All the descendants of Israel will be justified and find glory through the LORD.
In His days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely. This is what He will be named: The LORD Is Our Righteousness.
-- that is, God's righteousness through faith in Jesus Christ, to all who believe, since there is no distinction.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
They are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.
God presented Him as a propitiation through faith in His blood, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His restraint God passed over the sins previously committed.
He presented Him to demonstrate His righteousness at the present time, so that He would be righteous and declare righteous the one who has faith in Jesus.
But the gift is not like the trespass. For if by the one man's trespass the many died, how much more have the grace of God and the gift overflowed to the many by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ.
And the gift is not like the one man's sin, because from one sin came the judgment, resulting in condemnation, but from many trespasses came the gift, resulting in justification.
Since by the one man's trespass, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive the overflow of grace and the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ.
So then, as through one trespass there is condemnation for everyone, so also through one righteous act there is life-giving justification for everyone.
For just as through one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, so also through the one man's obedience the many will be made righteous.
Therefore, no condemnation now exists for those in Christ Jesus,
He made the One who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
and be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own from the law, but one that is through faith in Christ-- the righteousness from God based on faith.
you yourselves, as living stones, are being built into a spiritual house for a holy priesthood to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
Deliver my life from the sword, my very life from the power of the dog.
Save with Your right hand, and answer me, so that those You love may be rescued.
I was a skilled craftsman beside Him. I was His delight every day, always rejoicing before Him.
I was rejoicing in His inhabited world, delighting in the human race.
"This is My Servant; I strengthen Him, [this is] My Chosen One; I delight in Him. I have put My Spirit on Him; He will bring justice to the nations.
Coastlands, listen to me; distant peoples, pay attention. The LORD called me before I was born. He named me while I was in my mother's womb.
He made my words like a sharp sword; He hid me in the shadow of His hand. He made me like a sharpened arrow; He hid me in His quiver.
He said to me, "You are My servant, Israel; I will be glorified in him."
Sword, awake against My shepherd, against the man who is My associate-- the declaration of the LORD of Hosts. Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered; I will also turn My hand against the little ones.
And there came a voice from heaven: This is My beloved Son. I take delight in Him!
While he was still speaking, suddenly a bright cloud covered them, and a voice from the cloud said: This is My beloved Son. I take delight in Him. Listen to Him!
The Father loves the Son and has given all things into His hands.
This is why the Father loves Me, because I am laying down My life so I may take it up again.
He has rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son He loves,
