4 By no means: verily let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mayest be justified in thy sayings, and mayest overcome when thou art judged.
5 But if our unrighteousness commendeth the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man.)
7 For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie to his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner?
8 And not rather (as we are slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say) Let us do evil, that good may come? whose damnation is just.
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;
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 sepulcher; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:
19 Now we know that whatever things 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.
21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being testified by the law and the prophets;
22 Even the righteousness of God, which is by faith of Jesus Christ to all, and upon all them that believe; for there is no difference:
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;
26 To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he may be just, and the justifier of him who believeth in Jesus.
27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? No; but by the law of faith.
30 Seeing it is one God who will justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.
