God justifies us (Rom 8:33)

“Who will bring

Any charge

Against God’s elect?

It is God

Who justifies.”

τίς ἐγκαλέσει κατὰ ἐκλεκτῶν Θεοῦ; Θεὸς ὁ δικαιῶν·

Paul again had an ironic question. “Who will bring any charge or accusation (τίς ἐγκαλέσει) against God’s elect (κατὰ ἐκλεκτῶν Θεοῦ)?”  Then, of course, he answered.  “It is God who justifies (Θεὸς ὁ δικαιῶν).”  Paul asked who would bring any accusation against God’s chosen ones?  The presumed answer was no one, since it is God who justifies people.  God has the final decision, no one else.  Do you feel justified by God?
