Romans 3:9–11 — The New International Version (NIV)

What shall we conclude then? Do we have any advantage? Not at all! For we have already made the charge that Jews and Gentiles alike are all under the power of sin. 10 As it is written:

“There is no one righteous, not even one;

11 there is no one who understands;

there is no one who seeks God.

Romans 3:9–11 — King James Version (KJV 1900)

What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; 10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: 11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

Romans 3:9–11 — New Living Translation (NLT)

Well then, should we conclude that we Jews are better than others? No, not at all, for we have already shown that all people, whether Jews or Gentiles, are under the power of sin. 10 As the Scriptures say,

“No one is righteous—

not even one.

11 No one is truly wise;

no one is seeking God.

Romans 3:9–11 — The New King James Version (NKJV)

What then? Are we better than they? Not at all. For we have previously charged both Jews and Greeks that they are all under sin.

10 As it is written:

“There is none righteous, no, not one;

11 There is none who understands;

There is none who seeks after God.

Romans 3:9–11 — New Century Version (NCV)

So are we Jews better than others? No! We have already said that Jews and those who are not Jews are all guilty of sin. 10 As the Scriptures say:

“There is no one who always does what is right,

not even one.

11 There is no one who understands.

There is no one who looks to God for help.

Romans 3:9–11 — American Standard Version (ASV 1901)

What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we before laid to the charge both of Jews and Greeks, that they are all under sin; 10 as it is written,

There is none righteous, no, not one;

11 There is none that understandeth,

There is none that seeketh after God;

Romans 3:9–11 — 1890 Darby Bible (DARBY)

What then? are we better? No, in no wise: for we have before charged both Jews and Greeks with being all under sin: 10 according as it is written, There is not a righteous man, not even one; 11 there is not the man that understands, there is not one that seeks after God.

Romans 3:9–11 — GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

What, then, is the situation? Do we have any advantage? Not at all. We have already accused everyone (both Jews and Greeks) of being under the power of sin, 10 as Scripture says, 

“Not one person has God’s approval. 

11 No one understands. 

No one searches for God. 

Romans 3:9–11 — The Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

What then? Are we any better? Not at all! For we have previously charged that both Jews and Gentiles are all under sin, 10 as it is written:

There is no one righteous, not even one.

11 There is no one who understands;

there is no one who seeks God.

Romans 3:9–11 — The New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

What then? Are we any better off? No, not at all; for we have already charged that all, both Jews and Greeks, are under the power of sin, 10 as it is written:

“There is no one who is righteous, not even one;

11 there is no one who has understanding,

there is no one who seeks God.

Romans 3:9–11 — The Lexham English Bible (LEB)

What then? Do we have an advantage? Not at all. For we have already charged both Jews and Greeks are all under sin, 10 just as it is written,

There is no one righteous, not even one;

11 there is no one who understands;

there is no one who seeks God.

Romans 3:9–11 — New International Reader’s Version, 1998 ed. (NIrV) (NIrV)

What should we say then? Are we Jews any better? Not at all! We have already claimed that Jews are sinners. The same is true of those who aren’t Jews.

10 It is written,

“No one is right with God, no one at all.

11 No one understands.

No one trusts in God.

Romans 3:9–11 — New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update (NASB95)

What then? Are we better than they? Not at all; for we have already charged that both Jews and Greeks are all under sin;

10 as it is written,

There is none righteous, not even one;

11 There is none who understands,

There is none who seeks for God;
