    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:21

    Pero ahora, sin la ley, la justicia de Dios se ha manifestado, testificada por la ley y por los profetas;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Romans 3:21

    Verse 21. But now the
    righteousness of God] God's method of saving sinners is now shown, by the Gospel, to be through his own mere mercy, by Christ Jesus; without the law-without any right or claim which might result from obedience to the law; and is evidently that which was intended by God from the beginning; for it is witnessed by the law and the prophets- the rites and ceremonies of the one, and the preachings and predictions of the others, all bearing testimony to the great design of God, and to the absolute necessity there was for the sacrifice and salvation which God has provided.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 21. But now the
    righteousness of God , etc..] The apostle having proved that all men are unrighteous, and that no man can be justified in the sight of God by his obedience, either to the law of nature or of Moses, proceeds to give an account of that righteousness, which does justify before God; and so returns to his former subject, ( Romans 1:17), concerning the righteousness of God, the revelation of which he makes to be peculiar to the Gospel, as he does here; since he says, that it without the law is manifested : meaning, either that this righteousness is without the law, and the deeds of it, as performed by sinful men; or that the manifestation of it is without the law, either of nature or of Moses; for the law discovers sin, but not a righteousness which justifies from sin; it shows what righteousness is, but does not direct the sinner where there is one to be had, that will make him righteous in the sight of God: this is made known without the law, and only in the Gospel: being witnessed by the law and the prophets ; a testimony is borne to the justifying righteousness of Christ both by the law, particularly in the five books of Moses; which testify of Christ, of his obedience, sufferings, and death, by which he brought in life and righteousness; (see Genesis 3:15), compared with ( Daniel 9:24); and ( Genesis 15:6) with ( Romans 4:9,10,22-25); and ( Genesis 22:18) with ( Galatians 3:8,9,14); and ( Deuteronomy 30:11-14) with ( Romans 10:5-10).

    And the prophets; Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel, and others; (see Isaiah 42:21) ( Isaiah 45:24,25 46:12,13 51:5,6,8 53:11 Jeremiah 23:6 Daniel 9:24).


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 21-26 - Must guilty man remain under wrath? Is the wound for ever incurable No; blessed be God, there is another way laid open for us. This is the righteousness of God; righteousness of his ordaining, and providing and accepting. It is by that faith which has Jesus Christ for it object; an anointed Saviour, so Jesus Christ signifies. Justifyin faith respects Christ as a Saviour, in all his three anointed offices as Prophet, Priest, and King; trusting in him, accepting him, an cleaving to him: in all these, Jews and Gentiles are alike welcome to God through Christ. There is no difference, his righteousness is upo all that believe; not only offered to them, but put upon them as crown, as a robe. It is free grace, mere mercy; there is nothing in u to deserve such favours. It comes freely unto us, but Christ bought it and paid the price. And faith has special regard to the blood of Christ, as that which made the atonement. God, in all this, declare his righteousness. It is plain that he hates sin, when nothing les than the blood of Christ would satisfy for it. And it would not agre with his justice to demand the debt, when the Surety has paid it, an he has accepted that payment in full satisfaction.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    21. Now (nuni) Logical, not temporal. In this
    state of the case. Expressing the contrast between two relations - dependence on the law and non-dependence on the law.

    Without the law. In a sphere different from that in which the law says "Do this and live."

    Is manifested (pefanerwtai). Rev., hath been manifested, rendering the perfect tense more strictly. Hath been manifested and now lies open to view. See on John xxi. 1, and on revelation, Apoc. i. 1 The word implies a previous hiding. See Mark iv. 22; Col. i. 26, 27.

    Being witnessed (marturoumenh). Borne witness to; attested. The present participle indicates that this testimony is now being borne by the Old Testament to the new dispensation.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    3:21 {But now apart from the law} (nuni de cwris nomou). He now (nuni emphatic logical transition) proceeds carefully in verses #21-31 the {nature} of the God-kind of righteousness which stands manifested (dikaiosune qeou pephaner"tai, perfect passive indicative of fanerow, to make manifest), the {necessity} of which he has shown in #1:18-3:20. this God kind of righteousness is "apart from law" of any kind and all of grace (cariti) as he will show in verse #24. But it is not a new discovery on the part of Paul, but "witnessed by the law and the prophets" (marturoumen, present passive participle, hupo tou nomou kai t"n propht"n), made plain continuously by God himself.
