Luke 18:10-14 Young’s Literal Translation (YLT)
10 `Two men went up to the temple to pray, the one a Pharisee, and the other a tax-gatherer;
11 the Pharisee having stood by himself, thus prayed: God, I thank Thee that I am not as the rest of men, rapacious, unrighteous, adulterers, or even as this tax-gatherer;
12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all things — as many as I possess.
13 `And the tax-gatherer, having stood afar off, would not even the eyes lift up to the heaven, but was smiting on his breast, saying, God be propitious to me — the sinner!
14 I say to you, this one went down declared righteous, to his house, rather than that one: for every one who is exalting himself shall be humbled, and he who is humbling himself shall be exalted.’
Romans 3:22-24 Young’s Literal Translation (YLT)
22 and the righteousness of God [is] through the faith of Jesus Christ to all, and upon all those believing, — for there is no difference,
23 for all did sin, and are come short of the glory of God —
24 being declared righteous freely by His grace through the redemption that [is] in Christ Jesus.
Since all have sinned and fallen short of the Glory and the perfection of God, no one can justify themselves before God as the Pharisee attempted to do in Luke 18. Only the truly contrite and repentant soul may ask for and receive the blessing of the Propitious and Reconciling Blood of CHRIST.
