So are we Jews better than others? No! We have already said that Jews and those who are not Jews are all guilty of sin.
As the Scriptures say: "There is no one who always does what is right, not even one.
There is no one who understands. There is no one who looks to God for help.
All have turned away. Together, everyone has become useless. There is no one who does anything good; there is not even one."
"Their throats are like open graves; they use their tongues for telling lies." "Their words are like snake poison."
"Their mouths are full of cursing and hate."
"They are always ready to kill people.
Everywhere they go they cause ruin and misery.
They don't know how to live in peace."
"They have no fear of God."
We know that the law's commands are for those who have the law. This stops all excuses and brings the whole world under God's judgment,
because no one can be made right with God by following the law. The law only shows us our sin.
