Are the Jews special? Yes, though full of unbelief,
They have God's law, and God is faithful to them chief.
Are Jews more righteous ? No, for God's word says: "all sin,
All have turned aside to evil, all walk therein..."
The law declares that all are guilty in God's sight,
And it can't make one righteous, only sin highlight.
But now God's righteousness has been manifested
Outside the law, and by the same law attested.
For though all have sinned, falling short of God's glory,
We are made right by faith in Christ's blood, purely.
Therefore there is no place where boasting in self lurks,
Gentile and Jew are both made right by faith, not works.
