“There is no one righteous, not even one;
there is no one who seeks God.
they have together become worthless;
there is no one who does good,
19 Now we know that whatever the law says,v it says to those who are under the law,w so that every mouth may be silencedx and the whole world held accountable to God.y 20 Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law;z rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin.a
21 But now apart from the law the righteousness of Godb has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify.c 22 This righteousnessd is given through faithe inh Jesus Christf to all who believe.g There is no difference between Jew and Gentile,h 23 for all have sinnedi and fall short of the glory of God,
