Romans 3:4 — The New International Version (NIV)

Not at all! Let God be true, and every human being a liar. As it is written:

“So that you may be proved right when you speak

and prevail when you judge.”

Romans 3:4 — English Standard Version (ESV)

By no means! Let God be true though every one were a liar, as it is written,

“That you may be justified in your words,

and prevail when you are judged.”

Romans 3:4 — New Living Translation (NLT)

Of course not! Even if everyone else is a liar, God is true. As the Scriptures say about him,

“You will be proved right in what you say,

and you will win your case in court.”

Romans 3:4 — The New King James Version (NKJV)

Certainly not! Indeed, let God be true but every man a liar. As it is written:

“That You may be justified in Your words,

And may overcome when You are judged.”

Romans 3:4 — New Century Version (NCV)

No! God will continue to be true even when every person is false. As the Scriptures say:

“So you will be shown to be right when you speak,

and you will win your case.”

Romans 3:4 — American Standard Version (ASV 1901)

God forbid: yea, let God be found true, but every man a liar; as it is written,

That thou mightest be justified in thy words,

And mightest prevail when thou comest into judgment.

Romans 3:4 — 1890 Darby Bible (DARBY)

Far be the thought: but let God be true, and every man false; according as it is written, So that thou shouldest be justified in thy words, and shouldest overcome when thou art in judgment.

Romans 3:4 — GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

That would be unthinkable! God is honest, and everyone else is a liar, as Scripture says,

“So you hand down justice when you speak,

and you win your case in court.”

Romans 3:4 — The Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

Absolutely not! God must be true, even if everyone is a liar, as it is written:

That You may be justified in Your words

and triumph when You judge.

Romans 3:4 — The New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

By no means! Although everyone is a liar, let God be proved true, as it is written,

“So that you may be justified in your words,

and prevail in your judging.”

Romans 3:4 — The Lexham English Bible (LEB)

May it never be! But let God be true but every human being a liar, just as it is written,

“In order that you may be justified in your words,

and may prevail when you are judged.”

Romans 3:4 — New International Reader’s Version (NIrV)

Not at all! God is true, even though every human being is a liar. It is written,

“You are right when you sentence me.

You are fair when you judge me.”

Romans 3:4 — New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update (NASB95)

May it never be! Rather, let God be found true, though every man be found a liar, as it is written,

That You may be justified in Your words,

And prevail when You are judged.”
