uwho saved us and vcalled us to1 a holy calling, wnot because of our works but because of vhis own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus xbefore the ages began,2

he saved us, enot because of works done by us in righteousness, but faccording to his own mercy, by gthe washing of regeneration and hrenewal of the Holy Spirit,

20 For yby works of the law no human being1 will be justified in his sight, since zthrough the law comes knowledge of sin.

28 For we hold that one is justified by faith papart from works of the law.
