Greek of: Live by faith?


Could St. Paul’s passage of “live by faith” be translated: stay alive by faith? God’s love in our hearts stays alive by believing His Word of Love.

I am sorry about the sentence structure of that question.


Romans 1, 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.


Any help?
