Romans 3:26

To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him who believes in Jesus.
Read Chapter 3


AD 400
The present time means our time, in which God has given what long before he had promised to give at the time at which he gave it. Paul has rightly said that God gave what he promised in order to be revealed as righteous. For he had promised that he would justify those who believe in Christ, as he says in Habakkuk: “The righteous will live by faith in me.” Whoever has faith in God and Christ is righteous. Commentary on Paul’s Epistles.

Tertullian of Carthage

AD 220
Of God, and provoke our own constancy? Because, albeit God is by nature good, still He is "just"

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
