Galatians 2:16

16yet we know that a  a person is not justified
Or counted righteous (three times in verse 16); also verse 17
by works of the law c  but 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, d  because by works of the law no one will be justified.
