to the Explanation of Dö6irine, 2'ßc. 31 could not be juflifréd by the Law of Mofes, Aas 13. 38, 39. That they may receive forgivenef'of fins and inheritance among them that are fanCti lied by Faith that is in me, chap. 26. 18. Bein uflitìed freely by his Grace, through the Redemption that is infiis Chrifl, whom God kath fit forth to be a propitiation through Faith in kis Blood, to declare his Righteoufref for the Remiffon of fins that are pall, through the forbearance of God. To declare at this time his Righteoufnefs, that he might be jujl, and theju,flifier of him that believeth in jefss. Where then is Boafling ? it is excluded, by what Law ? of Works 5 nay but by the Law of Faith. Therefore we conclude that a man is ju- flifiéd by Faith without the deeds of the Law, Rom, 3. 24,. 2 5, 26, 27, 28. For if Abraham were juflified by works, he bath whereof to Glory, but not before God ; For what faith the Scripture, Abraham believed God and it was counted unto him for Righteou(nef; now to him that worketh is the Reward, not reckoned of Grace but of Debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that juflifiéth the ungodly, his Faith is counted for Righteoufnef: Even as David alp deferileth the Bleffldnefs of the man unto whom God imputeth Righteou fnefs' without works, flaying, Bleffed are thofe whcfe Iniquities are for- given, and whofe fins are covered; Bled is the man unto whom the Lord will not impute fin, Rom. 4. 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. But not as the off ence, fo alfo zs the fee Gift; for if through the of- fence of one many be dead, much more the,Grace of God, and the Gift by Grace, which is by 'one man jefur Chrifl, bath aboun- ded'unto many. And not as it was one that finned, fo is the Gift; .for the judgment was by one to Condemnation :: but the free G f t is of many o jénces unto yufli facation.For if by one mans offence Death reigned by one, much in-re they which receive akin.; dance of Grace, and of the Gi ;-t of Righteoufnef, fhall reign in life by one; jefus Chrifi. Therefore as by the offence of one judge- ment came upon all men unto condemnation, even fo by the Righ- teoufnef of one, the fee Gift came upon all men unto juflifica -. tion
