4 By no means; but let God be true, and every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mayest be justified in thy sayings and overcome when thou art judged.
5 But if our unrighteousness commends the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who inflicts wrath? I speak as a man;??6 by no means;??ince [if he was] how shall God judge the world?
6 For if the truth of God abounded by my falsehood to his glory, why am I also yet judged as a sinner?
7 And as we are falsely accused and as some declare that we say, [do we say] Let us do evil that good may come? Whose judgment is just.
8 What defense then have we? None at all; for we before asserted that both Jews and Greeks are all under sin,
11 all have turned aside, they have together become unprofitable; there is no one that does good, there is not even one;
12 their throat is an opened tomb, with their tongues they practise deceit, the poison of asps is under their lips.
18 But we know that whatever the law says, it says to those having the law, that every mouth may be stopped and all the world become guilty before God.
19 Wherefore by the works of the law there shall no flesh be justified is his sight, for by the law there is an acknowledgment of sin.
20 BUT now God's righteousness has been made manifest without the law, being testified to by the law and the prophets,
21 but God's righteousness is through the faith of Jesus Christ, in all and upon all that believe. For there is no difference;
24 whom God set forth [to be] a propitiator through faith in his blood, to show his righteousness because of the passing by of the errors committed previously in the forbearance of God,
25 to show his righteousness at the present time, that he may be righteous and justify him that is of faith.
26 Where then is the boasting [of the Jew]? It is excluded. By what law? Of works? No; but by the law of faith.
29 since there is one God who will justify the circumcision by faith and the uncircumcision through the [same] faith.
