English Standard Version (ESV) New International Version (NIV)
9 What then? Are we Jews any better off? No, not at all. For we have already charged that all, both Jews and Greeks, are under sin, 9 What shall we conclude then? Are we any better ? Not at all! We have already made the charge that Jews and Gentiles alike are all under sin.
10 as it is written: "None is righteous, no, not one; 10 As it is written: "There is no one righteous, not even one;
11 no one understands; no one seeks for God. 11 there is no one who understands, no one who seeks God.
12 All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one." 12 All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one."
13 "Their throat is an open grave; they use their tongues to deceive." "The venom of asps is under their lips." 13 "Their throats are open graves; their tongues practice deceit." "The poison of vipers is on their lips."
14 "Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness." 14 "Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness."
15 "Their feet are swift to shed blood; 15 "Their feet are swift to shed blood;
16 in their paths are ruin and misery, 16 ruin and misery mark their ways,
17 and the way of peace they have not known." 17 and the way of peace they do not know."
18 "There is no fear of God before their eyes." 18 "There is no fear of God before their eyes."
19 Now we know that whatever the law says it speaks to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and the whole world may be held accountable to God. 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 For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin. 20 Therefore no one will be declared righteous in his sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of sin.
