Am having a bit of difficulty with 2 Peter 1:1 

Συμεὼν Πέτρος δοῦλος καὶ ἀπόστολος Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ τοῖς ἰσότιμον ἡμῖν λαχοῦσιν πίστιν ἐν δικαιοσύνῃ τοῦ θεοῦ ἡμῶν καὶ σωτῆρος Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ, 
[SUMEWN PETROS DOULOS KAI APOSTOLOS IHSOU CRISTOU TOIS ISOTIMON hHMIN LACOUSIN PISTIN EN DIKAIOSUNHi TOU QEOU hHMWN KAI SWTHROS IHSOU CRISTOU, ]

as the concept of receiving faith through the righteousness of God seems to make little sense,

Is it possible to translate this verse as something like: have received the righteousness of God through faith?
