Romans Chapter 3 (Index)

Chapters: 1
















001  What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?

002  Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God.

003  For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?

004  God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.

005  But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man)

006  God forbid: for then how shall God judge the world?

007  For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner?

008  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.

009  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;

010  As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

011  There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

012  They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

013  Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:

014  Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:

015  Their feet are swift to shed blood:

016  Destruction and misery are in their ways:

017  And the way of peace have they not known:

018  There is no fear of God before their eyes.

019  Now we know that what things soever 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.

020  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.

021  But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;

022  Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:

023  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

024  Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

025  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;

026  To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.

027  Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.

028  Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.

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

030  Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.

031  Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.
