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;
10 As it is written * , There is none righteous, no, not one:
11 There is none that understandeth , there is none that seeketh after God.
12 They are all gone out of the way , they are together become unprofitable ; there is none that doeth good, no, not one * .
13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit ; the poison of asps is under their lips:
15 Their feet are swift to shed blood:
17 And the way of peace have they not known :
18 There is no fear of God before their eyes.
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.
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.
