    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:27

    ¿Dnde pues est la jactancia? Es echada fuera. ¿Por cul ley? ¿De las obras? No; sino por la ley de la fe.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Romans 3:27

    Verse 27. JEW. Where is boasting, then?] h kauchsiv, This glorying of ours. Have we nothing in which we can
    trust for our acceptance with God? No merit of our own? Nothing accruing to us from our circumcision and being in covenant with God.

    APOSTLE, It is excluded] exekleisqh, It is shut out; the door of heaven is shut against every thing of this kind. JEW.

    By what law?] By what rule, doctrine, or reason is it shut out? by the law of works? The rule of obedience, which God gave to us, and by which obedience we are accepted by him? APOSTLE. Nay] Not by the law of works; glorying is not cut off or shut out by that; it stands in full force as the rule of life; but you have sinned and need pardon. The law of works grants no pardon, it requires obedience, and threatens the disobedient with death. But all glorying in the expectation of salvation, through your own obedience, is excluded by the law, the doctrine of faith: faith alone, in the mercy of God, through the propitiation made by the blood of Jesus, (ver. 25,) is that by which you can be justified, pardoned, and taken into the Divine favour.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 27. Where is boasting then ? etc..] There is no room nor reason for it, either in Jews or Gentiles: not in the Jews, who were very apt to boast of their being Abraham's seed; of their circumcision; of their being Israelites; of their having and keeping the law; of God being their God; and of their knowledge of him: nor in the Gentiles, who were ready to boast of their philosophy, wisdom, and learning; of their self-sufficiency, freewill, and of the things they had in their own power. It is excluded ; it is shut out of doors; the key is turned upon it; it is not allowed of; it is entirely exploded: by what law? of works? nay ; for, that establishes boasting when men seek life, righteousness, and salvation by the works of it, and fancy they shall be able to attain them this way: but by the law of faith : not by a law requiring faith; nor as if the Gospel was a law, a new law, a remedial law, a law of milder terms; but the word law here answers to the Hebrew word hrwt , which signifies any doctrine or instruction, and oftentimes the doctrine of the Gospel, as in ( Isaiah 2:3 42:4), and here particularly, the doctrine of a sinner's justification by faith in the righteousness of Christ; according to which doctrine the most unlikely persons are justified, even ungodly persons, the worst and vilest of sinners; and that without any consideration of works, by faith only, which is freely given them; and by faith in Christ's righteousness only: so that there is not the least room for boasting in the creature, but all their boasting is in Christ, who is made unto them righteousness, and by whom they are justified.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 27-31 -
    God will have the great work of the justification and salvation of sinners carried on from first to last, so as to shut out boasting. Now if we were saved by our own works, boasting would not be excluded. But the way of justification by faith for ever shuts out boasting. Ye believers are not left to be lawless; faith is a law, it is a workin grace, wherever it is in truth. By faith, not in this matter an act of obedience, or a good work, but forming the relation between Christ an the sinner, which renders it proper that the believer should be pardoned and justified for the sake of the Saviour, and that the unbeliever who is not thus united or related to him, should remai under condemnation. The law is still of use to convince us of what is past, and to direct us for the future. Though we cannot be saved by it as a covenant, yet we own and submit to it, as a rule in the hand of the Mediator __________________________________________________________________

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    3:27 {It is excluded} (exekleisth). First aorist (effective) passive indicative. "It is completely shut out." Glorying is on man's part. {Nay; but by a
    law of faith} (ouci, alla dia nomou pistews). Strong negative, and note "law of faith," by the principle of faith in harmony with God's love and grace.
