Romans 3:9–26

9 What then? 1aAre we better than they? Not at all; for we have already charged that both bJews and cGreeks are dall under sin;

10 as it is written,

aThere is none righteous, not even one;

11 There is none who understands,

There is none who seeks for God;

12 All have turned aside, together they have become useless;

There is none who does good,

There is not even one.”

13 aTheir throat is an open grave,

With their tongues they keep deceiving,”

bThe poison of asps is under their lips”;

14 aWhose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness”;

15 aTheir feet are swift to shed blood,

16 Destruction and misery are in their paths,

17 And the path of peace they have not known.”

18 aThere is no fear of God before their eyes.”

19 Now we know that whatever the aLaw says, it speaks to bthose who are 1under the Law, so that every mouth may be closed and call the world may become accountable to God;

20 because aby the works 1of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight; for 2bthrough the Law comes the knowledge of sin.

Justification by Faith

21 But now apart 1from the Law athe righteousness of God has been manifested, being bwitnessed by the Law and the Prophets,

22 even the arighteousness of God through bfaith cin Jesus Christ for dall those 1who believe; for ethere is no distinction;

23 for all 1ahave sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

24 being justified as a gift aby His grace through bthe redemption which is in Christ Jesus;

25 whom God displayed publicly as aa 1propitiation 2bin His blood through faith. This was to demonstrate His righteousness, 3because in the cforbearance of God He dpassed over the sins previously committed;

26 for the demonstration, I say, of His righteousness at the present time, so that He would be just and the justifier of the one who 1has faith in Jesus.
