Unchecked Copy BoxRom 3:2 - much in every way; for first, indeed, that they were intrusted with the oracles of God;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 3:3 - for what, if certain were faithless? shall their faithlessness the faithfulness of god make useless?
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 3:4 - let it not be! and let God become true, and every man false, according as it hath been written, 'That Thou mayest be declared righteous in Thy words, and mayest overcome in Thy being judged.'
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 3:5 - And, if our unrighteousness God's righteousness doth establish, what shall we say? is God unrighteous who is inflicting the wrath? (after the manner of a man I speak)

(Psa 14:1–3; 53:1–4 )
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 3:9 - What, then? are we better? not at all! for we did before charge both Jews and Greeks with being all under sin,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 3:10 - according as it hath been written -- 'There is none righteous, not even one;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 3:11 - There is none who is understanding, there is none who is seeking after God.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 3:12 - All did go out of the way, together they became unprofitable, there is none doing good, there is not even one.

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 3:19 - And we have known that as many things as the law saith, to those in the law it doth speak, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may come under judgment to God;
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 3:20 - wherefore by works of law shall no flesh be declared righteous before Him, for through law is a knowledge of sin.

Justification by Faith

Unchecked Copy BoxRom 3:21 - And now apart from law hath the righteousness of God been manifested, testified to by the law and the prophets,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 3:22 - and the righteousness of God is through the faith of Jesus Christ to all, and upon all those believing, -- for there is no difference,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 3:23 - for all did sin, and are come short of the glory of God --
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 3:24 - being declared righteous freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 3:25 - whom God did set forth a mercy seat, through the faith in his blood, for the shewing forth of His righteousness, because of the passing over of the bygone sins in the forbearance of God --
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 3:26 - for the shewing forth of His righteousness in the present time, for His being righteous, and declaring him righteous who is of the faith of Jesus.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 3:27 - Where then is the boasting? it was excluded; by what law? of works? no, but by a law of faith:
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 3:28 - therefore do we reckon a man to be declared righteous by faith, apart from works of law.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 3:29 - The God of Jews only is He, and not also of nations?
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 3:30 - yes, also of nations; since one is God who shall declare righteous the circumcision by faith, and the uncircumcision through the faith.
Unchecked Copy BoxRom 3:31 - Law then do we make useless through the faith? let it not be! yea, we do establish law.
