Tools specific to Rom 3:1

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:1

Then what advantage has the Jew? Or what is the value of circumcision?

Tools specific to Rom 3:2

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:2

Much in every way. To begin with, the Jews are entrusted with the oracles of God.

Tools specific to Rom 3:3

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:3

What if some were unfaithful? Does their faithlessness nullify the faithfulness of God?

Tools specific to Rom 3:4

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:4

By no means! Let God be true though every man be false, as it is written, "That thou mayest be justified in thy words, and prevail when thou art judged."

Tools specific to Rom 3:5

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:5

But if our wickedness serves to show the justice of God, what shall we say? That God is unjust to inflict wrath on us? (I speak in a human way.)

Tools specific to Rom 3:6

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:6

By no means! For then how could God judge the world?

Tools specific to Rom 3:7

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:7

But if through my falsehood God's truthfulness abounds to his glory, why am I still being condemned as a sinner?

Tools specific to Rom 3:8

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:8

And why not do evil that good may come?--as some people slanderously charge us with saying. Their condemnation is just.

Tools specific to Rom 3:9

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:9

What then? Are we Jews any better off? No, not at all; for I have already charged that all men, both Jews and Greeks, are under the power of sin,

Tools specific to Rom 3:10

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:10

as it is written: "None is righteous, no, not one;

Tools specific to Rom 3:11

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:11

no one understands, no one seeks for God.

Tools specific to Rom 3:12

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:12

All have turned aside, together they have gone wrong; no one does good, not even one."

Tools specific to Rom 3:13

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:13

"Their throat is an open grave, they use their tongues to deceive." "The venom of asps is under their lips."

Tools specific to Rom 3:14

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:14

"Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness."

Tools specific to Rom 3:15

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:15

"Their feet are swift to shed blood,

Tools specific to Rom 3:16

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:16

in their paths are ruin and misery,

Tools specific to Rom 3:17

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:17

and the way of peace they do not know."

Tools specific to Rom 3:18

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:18

"There is no fear of God before their eyes."

Tools specific to Rom 3:19

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:19

Now we know that whatever the law says it speaks to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and the whole world may be held accountable to God.

Tools specific to Rom 3:20

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:20

For no human being will be justified in his sight by works of the law, since through the law comes knowledge of sin.

Tools specific to Rom 3:21

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:21

But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from law, although the law and the prophets bear witness to it,

Tools specific to Rom 3:22

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:22

the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction;

Tools specific to Rom 3:23

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:23

since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

Tools specific to Rom 3:24

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:24

they are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus,

Tools specific to Rom 3:25

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:25

whom God put forward as an expiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God's righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins;

Tools specific to Rom 3:26

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:26

it was to prove at the present time that he himself is righteous and that he justifies him who has faith in Jesus.

Tools specific to Rom 3:27

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:27

Then what becomes of our boasting? It is excluded. On what principle? On the principle of works? No, but on the principle of faith.

Tools specific to Rom 3:28

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:28

For we hold that a man is justified by faith apart from works of law.

Tools specific to Rom 3:29

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:29

Or is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles also? Yes, of Gentiles also,

Tools specific to Rom 3:30

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:30

since God is one; and he will justify the circumcised on the ground of their faith and the uncircumcised through their faith.

Tools specific to Rom 3:31

Unchecked Copy Box Rom 3:31

Do we then overthrow the law by this faith? By no means! On the contrary, we uphold the law.
