Jews Still Have an Advantage

1 Therefore, what [is] the advantage of the Jew, or what [is] the use of circumcision? 2 Much in every way. For first, that they were entrusted with the oracles of God. 3 {What is the result}a if some refused to believe? Their unbelief will not nullify the faithfulness of God, [will it]? 4 May it never be! But let God be true but every human being a liar, just as it is written, "In order that you may be justified in your words, and may prevail when you are judged." 5 But if our unrighteousness demonstrates the righteousness of God, what shall we say? God, who inflicts wrath, [is] not unjust, [is he]? (I am speaking according to a human perspective.) 6 May it never be! For otherwise, how will God judge the world? 7 But if by my lying, the truth of God abounded to his glory, why am I also still condemned as a sinner? 8 And [why] not (as we are slandered, and as some affirm that we say), "Let us do evil, in order that good may come [of it]? Theirb condemnation is just!
