Romans 3:1-8 (English Standard Version)

God's Righteousness Upheld

1 Then what advantage has the Jew? Or what is the value of circumcision? 2 Much in every way. To begin with, 1the Jews were entrusted with 2the oracles of God. 3 3What if some were unfaithful? 4Does their faithlessness nullify the faithfulness of God? 4 By no means! 5Let God be true though 6every one were a liar, as it is written, 7"That you may be justified in your words, and prevail when you 8are judged." 5 But if our unrighteousness serves to show the righteousness of God, what shall we say? That God is unrighteous to inflict 9wrath on us? (10I speak in a human way.) 6 By no means! For then how could 11God judge the world? 7 But if through my lie God's truth abounds to his glory, 12why am I still being condemned as a sinner? 8 And why not 13do evil that good may come?--as some people slanderously charge us with saying. Their condemnation is just.
