Chapter 3

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

Romans 3:2 Much every way: chiefly, because to them were committed the sayings of God.

Romans 3:3 For what if some did not believe? Will their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?

Romans 3:4 God forbid: yes, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, that You might be justified in Your sayings, and may overcome when You are judged.

Romans 3:5 But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what will we say? Is God unrighteous who takes vengeance? (I speak as a man)

Romans 3:6 God forbid: for then how will God judge the world?

Romans 3:7 For if the reality of God has increased through my lie to His glory; why then am I also judged as a sinner?

Romans 3:8 And not rather, (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say) let us do evil that good may come? Whose damnation is just.

Romans 3:9 What then? Are we better than they? No, in no way: for we have previously proved both Jews and other nations, that they are all under sin;

Romans 3:10 as it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one:

Romans 3:11 there is none that understands, there is none that seeks after God.

Romans 3:12 They are all taken out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that does good, no, not one.

Romans 3:13 Their throat is an open tomb; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:

Romans 3:14 whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:

Romans 3:15 their feet are swift to shed blood:

Romans 3:16 destruction and misery are in their ways:

Romans 3:17 and the way of peace have they not known:

Romans 3:18 there is no fear of God before their eyes.

Romans 3:19 Now we know that what things so ever the Law says, it says to them who are under the Law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.

Romans 3:20 Therefore by the deeds of the Law there will no flesh be justified in His sight: for by the Law is the knowledge of sin.

Romans 3:21 But now the righteousness of God apart the Law is manifested, being witnessed by the Law and the prophets;

Romans 3:22 even the righteousness of God which is by faith in Jesus Christ to all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

Romans 3:23 for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God;

Romans 3:24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

Romans 3:25 Whom God purposed to be a mercy seat through faith in His blood, into showing His righteousness through the passing over of sins things that were done, in the restraint of God;

Romans 3:26 to explain, I say, at this time His righteousness: that He might be just, and the justifier of whoever believes in Jesus.

Romans 3:27 Then where is boasting? It is excluded. By what law? By works? No: but by the law of faith.

Romans 3:28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from the deeds of the Law.

Romans 3:29 Is He the God of the Jews only? Is He not also of the nations? Yes, of the nations also:

Romans 3:30 seeing it is one God, who will justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.

Romans 3:31 Do we then make void the Law through faith? God forbid! On the contrary, we establish the Law.
