Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law,

from Holy Bible (KJV) – Galatians 2 on Rap Genius

Meaning

The works of law Paul is referring to are those that distinguish Jews from Gentiles, such as circumcision, dietary restrictions, and Sabbath-keeping. His phrase, however, includes all the efforts of fallen humanity to keep God’s law so as to merit His justifying verdict.
