Rm 3:1What then is the advantage of the Jew? Or what is the profit of the circumcision?

Rm 3:2Much in every way. First, that they were entrusted with the oracles of God.

Rm 3:3For what if some disbelieved? Shall their unbelief annul the faithfulness of God?

Rm 3:4Absolutely not! But let God be true and every man a liar, as it is written, “That You may be declared righteous in Your words and may overcome when You are judged.”

Rm 3:5But if our unrighteousness commends the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is the God who inflicts wrath unrighteous? I speak according to man.

Rm 3:6Absolutely not! Otherwise how shall God judge the world?

Rm 3:7But if the truthfulness of God has abounded in my lie unto His glory, why still am I also being judged as a sinner?

Rm 3:8And why not say (as we are slanderously charged and as some affirm that we say), Let us do evil that good may come? whose judgment is just.

Rm 3:9What then? Are we better? Not at all! For we have previously charged both Jews and Greeks that they are all under sin,

Rm 3:10Even as it is written, “There is none righteous, not even one;

Rm 3:11There is none who understands, there is none who seeks out God.

Rm 3:12All have turned aside; together they have become useless; there is none who does good; there is not so much as one.

Rm 3:13Their throat is an opened grave; with their tongues they practiced deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips;

Rm 3:14Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness.

Rm 3:15Swift are their feet to shed blood,

Rm 3:16Destruction and misery are in their ways,

Rm 3:17And the way of peace they have not known.

Rm 3:18There is no fear of God before their eyes.”

Rm 3:19Now we know that whatever things the law says, it speaks to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped and all the world may fall under the judgment of God;

Rm 3:20Because out of the works of the law no flesh shall be justified before Him; for through the law is the clear knowledge of sin.

Rm 3:21But now, apart from the law, the righteousness of God has been manifested, witness being borne to it by the Law and the Prophets;

Rm 3:22Even the righteousness of God through the faith of Jesus Christ to all those who believe, for there is no distinction;

Rm 3:23For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

Rm 3:24Being justified freely by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus;

Rm 3:25Whom God set forth as a propitiation place through faith in His blood, for the demonstrating of His righteousness, in that in His forbearance God passed over the sins that had previously occurred,

Rm 3:26With a view to the demonstrating of His righteousness in the present time, so that He might be righteous and the One who justifies him who is of the faith of Jesus.

Rm 3:27Where then is boasting? It is excluded. Through what kind of law? That of works? No, but through the law of faith.

Rm 3:28For we account that a man is justified by faith apart from the works of the law.

Rm 3:29Or is He the God of the Jews only? Is He not of the Gentiles also? Yes, of the Gentiles also,

Rm 3:30If indeed God is one, who will justify the circumcision out of faith and the uncircumcision through faith.

Rm 3:31Do we then make the law of no effect through faith? Absolutely not! Rather, we establish the law.
