Augustine paraphrases and explains II Corinthians 5:21

"He was sin, that we might be righteousness; not our own, but the righteousness of God; not in ourselves, but in him; as he was sin, not his own, but ours,--not in himself, but in us." (Augustine, as quoted by John Owen)

"For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him" (II Corinthians 5:21).
