he did it to demonstrate his justice at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.
for the demonstration, I say, of His righteousness at the present time, so that He would be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
And he is entirely fair and just in this present time when he declares sinners to be right in his sight because they believe in Jesus.
This is not only clear, but it's now--this is current history! God sets things right. He also makes it possible for us to live in his rightness.
And to make clear his righteousness now, so that he might himself be upright, and give righteousness to him who has faith in Jesus.
it was to prove at the present time that he himself is righteous and that he justifies the one who has faith in Jesus.
to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
