4 Let it not be! But let God be true, and every man a liar; as it is written, "That You might be justified in Your sayings, and will overcome when You are judged."
5 But if our unrighteousness commends the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who lays on wrath? (I speak as a man.)
7 For if in my lie the truth has more abounded to His glory why am I still judged as a sinner?
8 And not rather, (as we are wrongly accused, and as some affirm that we say), Let us do bad things that good may come? Their condemnation is just.
9 What then? Do we excel? No, in no way; for we have before charged both Jews and Greeks all with being under sin,
12 "They are all gone out of the way, they have together become unprofitable, there is none that does good, no, not one."
13 "Their throat is an open grave, with their tongues they have used deceit, the poison of asps is under their lips;
19 But we know that whatever things the Law says, it says to those who are under the Law; so that every mouth may be stopped and all the world may be under judgment before God,
20 because by the works of the Law none of all flesh will be justified in His sight; for through the Law is the knowledge of sin.
21 But now a righteousness of God has been revealed apart from Law, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets;
22 even the righteousness of God through the faith of Jesus Christ, toward all and upon all those who believe. For there is no difference,
25 whom God has set forth to be a propitiation through faith in His blood, to declare His righteousness through the passing by of the sins that had taken place before, in the forbearance of God;
26 for the display of His righteousness at this time, for Him to be just and, forgiving the one being of the faith of Jesus.
27 Then where is the boasting? It is excluded. Through what law? Of works? No, but through the law of faith.
30 since it is one God who will justify circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.
