    Romans 3:9-26

    No One Is Righteous

       9 What shall we conclude then?  Do we have any advantage?  Not at all!  We have already made the charge that Jews and Gentiles alike are all under the power of sin.

      10 As it is written:  "There is no one righteous, not even one;

      11there is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God.

      12 All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one."

      13 "Their throats are open graves; their tongues practice deceit."  "The poison of vipers is on their lips."

      14 "Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness."

      15 "Their feet are swift to shed blood;

      16 ruin and misery mark their ways,

      17 and the way of peace they do not know."

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

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

      20 Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God's sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin.

    Righteousness Through Faith

      21 But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify.

      22 This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.  There is no difference between Jew and Gentile,

      23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

      24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

      25 God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith.  He did this to demonstrate his justice, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished—

      26 he did it to demonstrate his justice at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.
