Romans 3:9-20

CEB 9 So what are we saying? Are we better off? Not at all. We have already stated the charge: both Jews and Greeks are all under the power of sin. NIV 9 What shall we conclude then? Do we have any advantage? Not at all! For we have already made the charge that Jews and Gentiles alike are all under the power of sin. CEB 10 As it is written, There is no righteous person, not even one. NIV 10 As it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one; CEB 11 There is no one who understands. There is no one who looks for God. NIV 11 there is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God. CEB 12 They all turned away. They have become worthless together. There is no one who shows kindness. There is not even one. NIV 12 All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one.” CEB 13 Their throat is a grave that has been opened. They are deceitful with their tongues, and the poison of vipers is under their lips. NIV 13 “Their throats are open graves; their tongues practice deceit.”“The poison of vipers is on their lips.” CEB 14 Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness. NIV 14 “Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.” CEB 15 Their feet are quick to shed blood; NIV 15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood; CEB 16 destruction and misery are in their ways; NIV 16 ruin and misery mark their ways, CEB 17 and they don't know the way of peace. NIV 17 and the way of peace they do not know.” CEB 18 There is no fear of God in their view of the world. NIV 18 “There is no fear of God before their eyes.” CEB 19 Now we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those who are under the Law, in order to shut every mouth and make it so the whole world has to answer to 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. CEB 20 It follows that no human being will be treated as righteous in his presence by doing what the Law says, because the knowledge of sin comes through the Law. NIV 20 Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin.
