    Romans 1:17 English Standard Version (ESV) 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.” God's Wrath on Unrighteousness

    Romans 1:17 New International Version (NIV). 17 For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed —a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”

    King James Version:

    Romans 1:17 For the gospel reveals the righteousness of God that comes by faith from start to finish, just as it is written: "The righteous will live by faith."

    For those wanting Signs and Wonders, It's God's wrath that He reveals from heaven, direct from Him to mankind. But righteousness . . .

    LXX puts it, The just, by My faith, they live.

    The righteousness of God is revealed in His faith given to us, so that we can have new and pure lives.

    Reminds me of Psalm 129, the LORD is righteous, He has cut the bands of the wicked . . .

    Much love!

    Amen, From human faith to the faith given by God This wide range of possible meanings is confusing, to say the least, but Paul gives us an important clue to what he meant. After using the expression “from faith to faith,” Paul then quotes Habakkuk 2:4, saying: “as it is written, ‘The just shall live by faith.’”

    It seems to me that, this measure of faith that God has given to us we must earnestly contend with, so that He will find us doing in our life style.
