Romans 3

KJV 1 What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision? NIV 1 What advantage, then, is there in being a Jew, or what value is there in circumcision? KJV 2 Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God. NIV 2 Much in every way! First of all, they have been entrusted with the very words of God. KJV 3 For what if some did not believe ? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect ? NIV 3 What if some did not have faith? Will their lack of faith nullify God's faithfulness? KJV 4 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 . NIV 4 Not at all! Let God be true, and every man a liar. As it is written: "So that you may be proved right when you speak and prevail when you judge." KJV 5 But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say ? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man) NIV 5 But if our unrighteousness brings out God's righteousness more clearly, what shall we say? That God is unjust in bringing his wrath on us? (I am using a human argument.) KJV 6 God forbid : for then how shall God judge the world? NIV 6 Certainly not! If that were so, how could God judge the world? KJV 7 For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner? NIV 7 Someone might argue, "If my falsehood enhances God's truthfulness and so increases his glory, why am I still condemned as a sinner?" KJV 8 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. NIV 8 Why not say--as we are being slanderously reported as saying and as some claim that we say--"Let us do evil that good may result"? Their condemnation is deserved. KJV 9 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; NIV 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. KJV 10 As it is written , There is none righteous, no, not one: NIV 10 As it is written: "There is no one righteous, not even one; KJV 11 There is none that understandeth , there is none that seeketh after God. NIV 11 there is no one who understands, no one who seeks God. KJV 12 They are all gone out of the way , they are together become unprofitable ; there is none that doeth good, no, not one . NIV 12 All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one." KJV 13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit ; the poison of asps is under their lips: NIV 13 "Their throats are open graves; their tongues practice deceit." "The poison of vipers is on their lips." KJV 14 Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: NIV 14 "Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness." KJV 15 Their feet are swift to shed blood: NIV 15 "Their feet are swift to shed blood; KJV 16 Destruction and misery are in their ways: NIV 16 ruin and misery mark their ways, KJV 17 And the way of peace have they not known : NIV 17 and the way of peace they do not know." KJV 18 There is no fear of God before their eyes. NIV 18 "There is no fear of God before their eyes." KJV 19 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. NIV 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. KJV 20 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. NIV 20 Therefore no one will be declared righteous in his sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of sin. KJV 21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested , being witnessed by the law and the prophets; NIV 21 But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. KJV 22 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: NIV 22 This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, KJV 23 For all have sinned , and come short of the glory of God; NIV 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, KJV 24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: NIV 24 and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. KJV 25 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; NIV 25 God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in his blood. He did this to demonstrate his justice, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished-- KJV 26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. NIV 26 he did it to demonstrate his justice at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus. KJV 27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded . By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. NIV 27 Where, then, is boasting? It is excluded. On what principle? On that of observing the law? No, but on that of faith. KJV 28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. NIV 28 For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from observing the law. KJV 29 Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also: NIV 29 Is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles too? Yes, of Gentiles too, KJV 30 Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith. NIV 30 since there is only one God, who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through that same faith. KJV 31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid : yea, we establish the law. NIV 31 Do we, then, nullify the law by this faith? Not at all! Rather, we uphold the law.
