3:19 Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under 1 the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world may be held accountable to God.
3:27 Where, then, is boasting? 2 It is excluded! By what principle? 3 Of works? No, but by the principle of faith!
1 tn Grk “in,” “in connection with.”
2 tn Although a number of interpreters understand the “boasting” here to refer to Jewish boasting, others (e.g. C. E. B. Cranfield, “‘The Works of the Law’ in the Epistle to the Romans,” JSNT 43 : 96) take the phrase to refer to all human boasting before God.
3 tn Grk “By what sort of law?”
