Romans 3

3:1 What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit [is there] of circumcision? 3:2 Much every way: chiefly, because that to them were committed the oracles of God. 3:3 For what if some did not believe? will their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? 3:4 By no means: verily let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mayest be justified in thy sayings, and mayest overcome when thou art judged. 3:5 But if our unrighteousness commendeth the righteousness of God, what shall we say? [Is] God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man.) 3:6 By no means: for then how shall God judge the world? 3:7 For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie to his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner? 3:8 And not [rather] (as we are slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say) Let us do evil, that good may come? whose damnation is just. 3:9 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; 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: 3:11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh God. 3:12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. 3:13 Their throat [is] an open sepulcher; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps [is] under their lips: 3:14 Whose mouth [is] full of cursing and bitterness. 3:15 Their feet [are] swift to shed blood. 3:16 Destruction and misery [are] in their ways: 3:17 And the way of peace have they not known. 3:18 There is no fear of God before their eyes. 3:19 Now we know that whatever things the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God. 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the law, there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law [is] the knowledge of sin. 3:21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being testified by the law and the prophets; 3:22 Even the righteousness of God, [which is] by faith of Jesus Christ to all, and upon all them that believe; for there is no difference: 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace, through the redemption that is in Jesus Christ: 3:25 Whom God hath set forth [to be] a propitiation, through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; 3:26 To declare, [I say], at this time his righteousness: that he may be just, and the justifier of him who believeth in Jesus. 3:27 Where [is] boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? No; but by the law of faith. 3:28 Therefore we conclude, that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. 3:29 [Is he] the God of the Jews only? [is he] not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also: 3:30 Seeing [it is] one God who will justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith. 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? By no means: but we establish the law.
