CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
And by him - By means of him; by his sufferings and death.
All that believe - See the notes on Mark 16:16.
Are justified - Are regarded and treated as if they were righteous. They are pardoned, and admitted to the favor of God, and treated as if they had not offended. See this point explained in the notes on Romans 1:17; Romans 3:24-25; Romans 4:1-8.
From all things - From the guilt of all offences.
From which ye could not ... - The Law of Moses commanded what was to be done. It appointed sacrifices and offerings as typical of a greater sacrifice. But those sacrifices could not take away sin.

The law of Moses - The commands and institutions which he, under the direction of God, established.

because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law comes the knowledge of sin.
For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law.
For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh,
For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.
nevertheless knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the Law but through faith in Christ Jesus, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, so that we may be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the Law; since by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified.
(for the Law made nothing perfect), and on the other hand there is a bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God.
