Galatians 2:16

16yet we know that aa person is not justified
Or counted righteous (three times in verse 16); also verse 17
by works of the law cbut through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, dbecause by works of the law no one will be justified.

Galatians 3:22-23

22But the Scripture eimprisoned everything under sin, so that fthe promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given gto those who believe.

23Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, himprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed.
